Chocolate-Covered Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

“Chocolate and cherries are a match made in heaven. I made these for my holiday goodies, and they went over like you would not believe! The cherries were still juicy, and the perfect texture. They set up perfectly.”

-Redneck Epicurean

No-Bake Bourbon Balls

"These were totally awesome! They went like hotcakes at my office party today. I used food service gloves when rolling them, and voila, no sticking! After I chilled them for about an hour, I re-rolled them in the powdered sugar, as the powdered sugar from the first round got absorbed. They were much better after sitting overnight in the fridge.”

Auntie's No-Bake Cookies

"Everyone knows this recipe but I've found the ingredient to make these cookies over the top. It keeps the texture moist and not grainy. My method for dropping them keeps a nice shape too."
