What's Cooking!

Hi! If you are a regular follower to my blog, thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to lately. If you are here by way of getting a goodie tray from me or my hubby with my blog address on it--WELCOME!

I decided that it would be a cool addition if you could have the recipes for the goodies you now have at your fingertips, so here you go! I am going to start with the goodie in the 12 o'clock position and work my way around.

1. Snowman Hat--Easy one. Melt vanilla or chocolate almond bark and dip mint or regular Oreos and large marshmallows. Sprinkle with colored sugar.

2. Coconut bonbons--See recipe at http://baking.about.com/od/truffles/r/coconutbonbons.htm

3. Peppermint thin mints--Another easy one. Melt chocolate or vanilla almond bark. Add 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract. Dip Town House crackers in bark. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.

4. Play Dough Cookies--They are edible! Here's the recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Play-Dough-Cookies/Detail.aspx I only used two colors for the dough and I didn't use lollipop sticks.

5. Pecan Pralines--Rich and sinful! Here's your link: http://recipes.pauladeen.com/index.php/recipes/view/pecan_pralines/

6. Buckeyes--Makes 4 dozen


1 box and 1 cup powdered sugar
2 sticks melted butter
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
12 ounces chocolate chips
1/4 cake paraffin wax

Mix powdered sugar, butter, and peanut butter until well blended. Roll into small 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper on cookie sheet; chill until hard. In the meantime, melt chocolate chips and paraffin in double boiler. Dip bottom two-thirds of each ball into chocolate mixture with a toothpick. Put onto waxed paper until cool.

7. Corn Flake Wreaths--So, they don't really LOOK like wreaths, but you gotta admit they are festive. Here's how you can do it: http://www.aliciasrecipes.com/Recipe/6093/No-Bake-Christmas-Wreath-Cookies.htm

8. Cookie Dough Truffles--These don't contain raw eggs, so you are good to go! Here's your recipe: http://recipes.pauladeen.com/index.php/recipes/view/cookie_dough_truffles/

9. Dummy Fudge--Yes, it's that easy. Here it is: http://recipes.pauladeen.com/index.php/recipes/view/dummy_fudge/

I hope you enjoy your goodies. If you didn't get goodies from me, I am sorry! Enjoy these recipes!

Please let me know what you like best. I am trying to come up with a standard for next year.

Merry Christmas! Please stop by my blog again sometime!

This is fabulous because I was just thinking today, "I need to do some more baking but I want some new ideas"

Perfect!

Okay, I suck at making cookies. I tried to make some homemade refrigerator box cookies this last weekend...they tasted good, but formed one giant cookie. I can do brownies though... :)

Sorry you walked in on that "conversation" on my blog...it's all gone now. Tis the season! :)

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my bloggy page. Your treats look yummy and easy. Easy is always good in my book.

I have friends that are in Winfield/Sulligent area. It's been awhile since we've been up that way. Love me some Boar's Butt. It's still open isn't it??
