We had a nice weekend here. We finished up all of our treats. Here is what we made the rest of the week:
24 oz. Cocktail Peanuts
1 1/4 C. chunky peanut butter
2 12oz pkgs. milk Chocolate chips
48 Large Marshmellows
2 cans of Cherry Frosting
Chop peanuts fine
Microwave 1 pkg. choco chips with 1/2 peanut butter add 1/2 chopped nuts and spread on a big cookie sheet and place in freezer
Melt Marshmellows and frosting in the microwave and spread on top of chocolate and place in freezer
Melt the other half of chocolate chips and peanut butter and add the other 1/2 of the nuts. Spread on top of frosting and place in the freezer.
1 cup butter
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 C. light corn syrup
1 14oz. can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
Dash of Salt
Combine ingredients in a heavy pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Keep at a rolling boil and cook until soft ball forms in cold water(about 15 minutes). Pour into buttered 7x11 in pan. Cool and then cut into squares wrap each piece in wax paper.
This is my favorite cookie recipe. I just stumbled upon it. My husband finally shared his secrets with me. I stumbled upon it in my hubby's wallet. It is an old wrinkled piece of paper from his mission. He used to make these in his in the mission field, and they are tasty.
I divided the dough in 1/2 when I was finished and added mint chips to half, and toffee chips to the other half. YUMMO!! But you know how I love a good cookie.
2 1/4 C. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
Sift those together.
1 C. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 C. white sugar
1 t. vanilla
Once mixed add the dry ingredients one cup at a time. Then add the chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes.
Then we piled them all on to nice plates.
Then we covered them up, and tied a bow around them.
and attached this little picture, and delivered them to our neighbors.
Homemade treat week is definitely a new tradition.
