Chocolate Covered Snowball Cookies

Chocolate Covered Snowball Cookies

Like I wrote in our Pumpkin Spice Snowball Cookies post, these delicious cookies are called different names: Mexican Wedding Cookies, Russian Tea Cakes or Snowball Cookies.  Regardless of what you call them, they are delicious and a family favorite of ours. When I saw Dorothy's post over on Crazy for Crust I about fell over.  Why it took so many years for someone to think about dipping these flaky, buttery cookies in chocolate is beyond me.  So a huge thank you Dorothy.  You've changed the look … [Continue reading...]

Chocolate, Caramel and Graham Cracker Toffee AKA: Christmas Crack

Christmas Crack or Graham Cracker Toffee

This recipe has a lot of different names.  The one that I see the most is Christmas Crack.  The definitely an odd name but it makes sense after you try this "candy".  You won't want to stop eating it.  It's deliciously addictive!  In a good way, not a bad way. This is a fantastic "candy" to make for your Christmas cookie tray.  It's easy to make, stays fresh, and tastes wonderful.  It'll be the favorite, for sure. Line your cookie sheet with graham crackers. Make your sugar … [Continue reading...]

Soft Peanut Brittle

I go through baking phases.  I’ll get on a kick where all I want to make is brownies – lots and lots of brownies.  Then it’ll switch over to cookies and I make all sorts of different cookie recipes.  Right now I’m in my candy making phase.  I want to make candy (and eat it!)  […]

Sugar Skull Sugar Cookies

I absolutely love Sugar Skulls!  So when I saw a very cool Sugar Skull cookie cutter I thought “I could do that.”  Well, we made them and yes, they taste delicious.  We used our favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe which I can’t stop eating.  I wasn’t sure on the decorating.  The cookies have the face stamped on […]

Oreo Macarons

Oreo Macarons

After making our Bubblegum Macarons I had to make another batch with a flavor that wasn’t “12 year old girl flavored”.  And what better flavor to make than Oreo.  I love Oreos so how could an Oreo Macaron not be delicious. Macrons are definitely not the easiest cookie to make.  I understand why they are […]

Key Lime Pie Bars

Key Lime Pie Bars

Are you a Key Lime Pie person?  I’m sorry to say, I’m not.  I know, don’t judge me.  I always believed that a dessert should be pure.  You know, chocolate or peanut butter or caramel – dessert things.  Fruit?  Nope.  Not a dessert ingredient in my book. That being said, though, I have family members […]
