I needed to make a quick chocolate cookie to send to my godchild for her birthday. She is in college now (I feel so old) and she thought these were "the bomb" (her quote). I got this recipe from Camilla Saulsbury's Cake Mix Cookies book. Obviously, it travels well. Rich with a cake mix crust. I may have spent 10 minutes mixing these up.
As a non-fan of coconut and walnuts, in general, I was surprised to find that I LOVE this cookie bar. My step grandmother introduced them to my family and ever since, they've been a staple cookie in the "special holiday collection."
Super easy to make and they don't taste coconut-y or like walnuts Just so delicious!
Upgrade the classic bar cookie with the buttery tenderness of a shortbread crust. These crowd-pleasing bars are covered with a creamy peanut butter spread and bittersweet chocolate ganache. Recipe is from Fine Cooking.
A Scottish cookie-candy comprised of rich shortbread, thick caramel and topped with a layer of chocolate ganache. Like the UK version of a Twix bar! Cut into small squares because this is RICH, RICH, RICH!!! I have also made these with a candied pecan topping each square for a bit of crunch and party fanciness - yummmmm :) Cooking time includes chilling time.
These Granola bars are low cal, low fat, high fiber and high protein. This is an extremely healthy recipe that is still VERY DELICIOUS!! Go to my Youtube or Facebook page: "Nikki Dinki Cooking" for a "How To" video on making these.
I found this recipe last fall in a seasonal Betty Crocker recipe book and finally made it this year. I wish I had made it sooner! If you love cinnamon buns but don't want to spend the time making them, this is the recipe for you! Super easy and absolutely delicious!
This slice is NOT for the diet concious!
Very rich and very yummy and did I mention very easy!
You can substitute chocolate for a different kind, but if you use a chocolate with a creamy filling freeze the chocolate for an hour before using.
This is a bar cookie recipe I got from the Los Angeles Times - it was a request from a reader who wanted the recipe from the Bread & Cie Bakery in San Diego. I haven't made them yet, but they sound really good!
These are homey, old fashioned cookies that have a wonderful richness to them. The recipe was given to me by my dear friend Mary, who is like a 2nd mother to me, and one of my favorite people to swap recipes with.
This was from Country Living. The reader says the combination of caramel and sea salt gives this childhood treat a grown-up flavor. I'm going to make this for my co-workers and will give you an update in September on how they liked it.
This quick no-cook nougat recipe is from Todd Wilbur's "A Treasury of Top Secret Recipes". I have made it many, many times and never had a failure and everyone always raves about them tasting "just like a Snickers". It is a swell recipe to make with your kids. I have even used the Peanut Butter center as play clay for my kids. They love playing with clay they can EAT! I love it because it is not only safe, but tasty too.
These blondies are so good. The orange and almond extracts really give them a lovely flavor so I wouldn't leave them out if possible. I get the orange extract from a drug store. I had one that is called orange cream and it is wonderful. I got this recipe from a newspaper.
