Below is a list of recipes mentioned in the Chocolate Lovers series. They are some of my personal favorites and I make them all the time. Happy baking!
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 stick softened butter
1 pound bag powdered sugar (Yes, an entire ONE POUND bag!)
1 bag milk chocolate chips or 1 bag of white chocolate chips, your choice, either tastes delicious!
*Mix together peanut butter, butter and entire bag of powdered sugar.
*Roll about a tablespoon size (or small cookie scoop if you have it) of dough into small balls (ha ha, balls).
*Melt bag of chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave at 30 second intervals (stirring in between) until fully melted.
*Using a thin metal cake tester (this is the easiest tool I’ve found for doing this), stick the end into one of the pre-formed balls (stop laughing) and dip into the melted chocolate. To make them look like an actual buckeye, do not cover completely in chocolate (see photo above).
*Set chocolate dipped buckeyes onto a tray (I use a cookie sheet covered in foil) to cool. You can also put them in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.
1/2 cup softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Quick Rolled Oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup Craisins (cranberry raisins – can be found by regular raisins at the grocery store)
1/2 cup pecans
*Beat butter, vanilla, egg and sugar until mixed. Add all remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
*Drop tablespoon sized dough (or small cookie scoop) onto cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
*Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.
Snickers Surprise Cookies
1 cup softened butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
24 miniature Snickers candy bars (Can be substituted for any mini-sized candy bar. I’ve used mini Reese’s Cups before and they were AMAZING!)
*In one bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.
*In a separate bowl, mix together butter, peanut butter, brown & white sugar, eggs and vanilla.
*Slowly add dry ingredients to wet until all combined.
*Chill dough for 2 – 3 hours.
*Stuff one miniature candy piece into about 2 tablespoons of dough (enough to completely cover the candy) and roll into a ball.
*Place balls (fine, go ahead and keep laughing) onto cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart.
*Bake at 300 degrees for 10 – 20 minutes.
Rolos candy (If you’re not from the US, these are little soft caramel candies dipped in chocolate)
Mini pretzels (Regular shape or the square “waffle” kind work the same)
*Place pretzels in a single layer on cookie sheet (you can put them as close together as you’d like).
*Put one Rolo candy in the center of each pretzel (Minus the foil wrapper!).
*Bake at 200 degrees for 4 minutes.
*Remove from oven and immediately place one pecan in the center of the Rolo, pressing gently.
*Cool and enjoy!
*Mix cake mix, butter and egg (will be the consistency of pie crust).
*Press into a 15 x 10 inch jellyroll pan (cookie sheet).
*Pour can of condensed milk on top of crust.
*Sprinkle toffee bits on top of milk.
*Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
*Cool and serve.
*Mix together sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs.
*Add the rest of the ingredients and combine.
*In small bowl, mix together 2 TBSP sugar and 2 TBSP cinnamon.
*Roll dough into 1 inch balls (are you STILL laughing?), roll into cinnamon/sugar mixture until coated.
*Set dough 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
*Bake at 400 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.
Chocolate Covered Shit (not ACTUAL shit)
Potato chips, pretzels, nuts, Nutter Butters, Oreos, Rice Krispy Treats, or anything else you can find in your pantry.
