Innocent looking like a Toll House, but far more sophisticated and rich! The dough is flavored with Irish Cream and dotted with macadamia nuts, then topped with an Irish Cream Glaze. Chocolate chips or chunks would probably be yummy in place of the nuts. (Recipe from a Land 'O Lakes cookie magazine.)
I have had this recipe for so long that I can't remember where it came from, but I think I got it out of a magazine or newspaper. I like it because you can use the dough in so many different ways. For the Holidays, you can press half of a candied cherry in the center of unbaked cookie, and then after baking drizzle with either white or dark chocolate, melted.
This recipe is from the back of an old bag of "M & M's" Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bits. I am glad I saved it, because these are great cookies and the recipe is no longer available, even on their website. This recipe is one of thirty or so varieties that I make every Christmas and it is always a favorite. *Added 12/30/07: I don't add the M & M baking bits AFTER the dough is refrigerated. I never understood why that was necessary and since I stopped doing it I've noticed no difference. I couldn't find the M & M's this year, so used a 10 oz. bag of Hershey Kissables and they came out just as good.* --K
Easy and fun to make! The taste of pretzels and chocolate go well together. These are made with the tiny pretzel squares by the name of Snaps on the bag. Use any chopped nut, but the flavor of peanuts with the chocolate is the best. The yield is approximate pieces.
Such an easy & quick candy, nice for any holiday thanks to the variety of holiday colors m&m's come in. This comes from an old magazine - was it Taste of Home or Quick Cooking? I can't remember, but they sure are tasty & cute! While the recipe calls for small pretzel rings, you'll get equally great results with mini twists and even Rold Gold butter checker pretzels if available in your neck of the woods.
This delicious quick bread recipe is very moist and very sweet- more like a cake than a bread. A former neighbor of mine shared this recipe with me after we received a loaf as a holiday gift. Thank you Cheryl!
I used to make this for a Bread and Breakfast Inn in Highlands, N.C. This is a variation on my Sour Cream Banana Bread, which turned out to be a duplicate recipe here on Zaar. So, in loving memory of my dear banana bread, here is one of the variations! You will love this! You may use flavored yogurt to kick this up a notch! Try vanilla! This also makes a great gift!
There are so many different versions of this wonderful combination. This is mine and I have used it for close to 20 years. This is DS favorite! The creamy peanut butter refers to a brand such as Jif or Skippy. I don't think a natural peanut butter will work as it is missing the oil Also, the margarine for the chocolate mixture is melted before adding to the chocolate chips. If water gets in the chocolate it well "seize".
