At Christmas, it seems the whole world changes focus. People celebrate, reflect, gather, and share more at this time of the year than any other. When we consider the gift that was given to us in the Christ Child, it makes perfect sense why we celebrate in such a manner. Admittedly, many have their own unique Christmas traditions, perhaps at times becoming lost in all of the hustle and bustle, but I'm sure we can all agree that it's the season of hope, joy and love.
This cookie is for all of the chocolate fans, brownie fans, and chocolate-mint fans. These brownie cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. The thick flavorful dough is very forgiving and versatile, and works great with all chocolate chips in equal amounts, too, if you like. Dutch process cocoa powder gives it the dark, rich color and the texture makes each bite a delight!
M & M Peanut Pretzel Bark:
No-Bake treats for gift giving or anytime munching!
Simple no-bake treats never go out of fashion. No matter the occasion or special holiday celebration, a sweet and salty flavor combination is always a crowd pleaser. If you love sweets, but, you aren't particularly inclined to bake from scratch, this no fuss pretzel bark will save the day!
When serving these sweet corn and crab puffs they should display a sign that reads "betcha can't eat just one!" They are simply that good. For holiday, game day or anytime munching they are a real crowd pleaser, and reheat beautifully, too. I prefer to make these puffs by adding all of the cheese to the dough, however, you can also sprinkle the tops with extra cheese, too, if you like. In my kitchen, cheese is in the same category as chocolate, there's no such thing as too much of either. Ever. You can serve these with a simple seafood sauce for dipping or on their own. You can thank me later...
