Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Like total dirty cookie on cookie action. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale. WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. [from giant rainbow cookies]

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter! ... - StumbleUpon I’m siiiiick. If you follow Willow Bird Baking on Facebook or Twitter (you do, right?), you’ve probably heard me whining about it lately (okay, maybe this isn’t the best way to encourage you to follow). It started with a sore throat and has turned into a beastly, phlegmatic ogre of a cold that has taken up residence in my chest and commenced hanging draperies and such. Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter! I know my students are to blame for this plague! I can’t stay home until I’m better, but I do tend to baby myself when I’m sick. And I’m not even going to mention the amount of this cookie dough I consumed over the weekend. If nothing else, cookie dough is good for the soul. And now, look how far I’ve come: this weekend I made not one, but three kinds of cookie dough! Chocolate chip cookie dough recipes are popular and easy to find, but safe-to-eat sugar cookie dough is a bit more elusive. Oh, and are you wondering about those truffles in the photos?

Twix Caramel Popcorn Recipe Twix Caramel Popcorn Every Fall we make caramel popcorn, it is a tradition in our house. Over the weekend we were hanging out at home with the baby and watching football. I got out our trusty air popper to pop the popcorn. I chopped up Twix candy bars into bite size pieces and mixed them into the caramel popcorn. If you are looking for a fun way to jazz up your caramel corn, try our Twix Caramel Popcorn. Twix Caramel Popcorn Yield: Makes a lot! If you like this Twix Caramel Popcorn, you might also like: Two-Ingredient Lemon Bars This simple, two-ingredient lemon bar is a nostalgic recipe for me. A friends mother had made these lemon bars for a birthday party, and my mom asked for the recipe. I remember my mom telling me that it was easy enough for me to make - it was one of the first recipes I remember making mostly on my own. As a result, every time I make these bars, I recall every detail of the birthday party from the games we played and the weather to the park where it was held. While I don't expect, you to get all nostalgic putting together this easy recipe, it is one of the easiest bar recipes I have ever found. Mix them together by hand until moist. Tonight I actually tried one with some left over fruit salsa from Our Best Bites, and it was amazingly delicious.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows — Oh She Glows - StumbleUpon Happy Birthday to my Brother in Law, Steve! Steve just so happens to be smitten with my baked goods, so every birthday I spoil him with a new vegan treat to enjoy. I’ve been meaning to make these Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows by Isa & Terry for a very long time now! I think I was a bit intimidated by the process of making these cookies. Stuffing a peanut butter ball into a cookie didn’t exactly sound fool proof (and trust me, I can mess up the easiest things at times!), but these cookies have been so well reviewed on other blogs I knew it couldn’t be that difficult. It turns out that it is fool proof! I’ll show you the step by step process to show you just how easy it is! You start off by making your chocolate dough and your peanut butter dough. Umm excuse me sir, that’s not dirt in my nails, it’s chocolate dough…duh. Break your peanut butter dough ball in half. Break each half in half again and then break each quarter into 6 pieces (as even as possible): Roll in hands until smooth:

Rolo TURTLES. (Not the bastard holiday M&M kind) | {So Wonderful, So Marvelous} I make these Rolo Turtle Candies every year, usually multiple times, but always at Christmas. They're a huge favorite with our peeps and they are SUPER easy to make. There is also a bastardized version made with a holiday m&m, but if I ditched the pecans, I'd have an angry mob on my hands. Don't let anyone talk you into making those. Without further ado, here is the recipe: 1. The key here is to put them pretty evenly spaced in rows, it will make the pecan step MUCH easier. 2. 3. 4. **There have been some fantastic reader comments about toasting the pecan first for a few minutes in the oven. 5. 6. I store in the fridge to keep them longer, but remove them an hour or so before eating so the caramel softens up a bit. Oh, and one last thing, a REALLY helpful hint...
