I got this recipe off of the Nestle Toll House White Chocolate chip bag. There was a similar recipe on recipezaar but the poster had reduced the amount of cocoa powder by a considerable amount. This, in my books, is sacrilege! The more chocolate, the better. The cooking time is for one cookie sheet.
These are some of my favorite sweets. Easy and sooooo good! I found the recipe in a church cookbook and made a couple adjustments after making it. The original recipe called for chow mein noodles but I prefer the rice noodles. Yield is an estimate as it depends on how big you scoop them :) Update: Dec 2011 - I made these today and reduced the peanut butter by 2 Tbsp and it worked well. I have updated the ingredient amount to reflect the change.
This recipe is from a friend I've known from high school, its simple and easy. We made it as kids at sleepovers and now my kids enjoy making it for their sleepovers. Its gets it name from the crackling noise it makes when you add the Rice Krispies.
I first saw these at a bake sale and was so impressed. You bake a ball of dough in a mini-muffin tin, bake, and press a Reese's peanut butter cup into it after you take it out of oven. You are left with a picture-perfect tart, receiving "oohs and aahs" and "how did you do it?" You could even use the refrigerated sugar/peanut butter cookie dough too.
This is, without a doubt, one of the best brownie recipes I have ever tried. The recipe is from the AARP Nov/Dec magazine. Wanted to post here so it wouldn't be lost. A little does go a long way, because these are so rich! If needed for a cookie exchange, you could cut these into 1" squares. If for yourself, cut more generously. If you need to serve a crowd, increase the recipe by 2 1/2 times and bake in a 9"x13" pan. They will need a little more time in the oven this way. Make sure to test for doneness with a knife.
From a British cookbook of all chocolate recipes. Yum! The original recipe called for half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate. I don't usually keep milk chocolate on hand so use all semi-sweet and I don't think I'll ever try them with milk chocolate - the richness of the semi-sweet is so good. A mixture of chocolate chunks and chips is a nice variation instead of just chips.
From Martha Stewart Living. Made by a co-worker for a cookie exchange. The parchment-wrapped dough can be placed in a resealable plastic bag and frozen for 3 months. The dough can be sliced while partially frozen, then baked for the same amount of time. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled. Be sure to rotate the log a quarter turn after making each slice. This will help it maintain its shape.
At the end of each holiday season I have a canister of cookie ingredients leftover. From that comes a collection of candies used to accent my trays. This year's bark was sensational and well worth posting. The combination of ginger and dark chocolate bursts in your mouth with every delectable bite. While the flavors here are complex and more sophisticated than my usual bark, but just wonderful year round.
First Place Winner in RSC#12! Super rich peanut butter dark chocolate brownies with a thick peanut butter topping accented with chocolate drizzle! Serving size will vary on tolerance for rich, sweet foods - the first time I made these, I cut into 20 bars and some of my guests thought that half the size would have been enough... I, on the other hand, had two!
