I know this sounds so easy and not worth it but you have to try these peanut butter cookies-have your friend try it too, I promise it will be a huge hit.
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of peanut butter-smooth
1 egg
Stir together and then roll into balls, place on baking pan, and use fork to flatten them out a bit (and make them pretty). bake at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes so that they're soft. If you would like you can melt your favorite kind of chocolate and spread on top of the cookies.

So many of my recipes have 7 ingredients lol. Here is a favorite of mine though with just 5 ingredients!

Marshmallow Carmel Balls

1 1/2 Package large marshmallows
50 carmels (1 package)
1 Can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 Cup butter
1 large box rice krispies

Melt carmels, sweetened condensed milk and butter together in microwave for 15 min or more until completely melted together and slightly bubbly. Stop and stir often so you don't burn your carmel.

Once melted dip your marshamallows in the carmel mixture and then roll in rice krispies. I use a fork to dip them as the carmel is very hot. If you want to add a little color to them then mix in Fruity Pebbles cereal with the Rice Krispies. These are SO yummy!! Cool them on wax paper and store in an airtight container.

Cookie Dough Ice Cream Squares!

- 1 box of cookie crisp cereal
- 1 half gallon of cookie dough ice cream
- 1 roll of chocolate chip cookie dough
- chocolate syrup or hot fudge chocolate

Preheat oven to 350. Using a 13x9 inch pan, line it with foil and let the foil hang off both sides of pan. This will be helpful in removing dessert from pan after it is frozen.

Press the roll of cookie dough into the bottom of the pan so that it acts as a bottom crust. Break it up and pat it down so that the whole bottom is covered.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the "crust" is golden brown.

Remove ice cream from freezer and place in refrigerator so that its softened by the time you need it.

After crust has cooled for about 30 minutes, remove ice cream from fridge and spread it all over the crust.

Then place cookie crisp cereal all over the top so that it acts like a top crust.

Drizzle hot fudge on top and put it in the freezer for about an hour or until firm. Cut into squares.

So easy and sooo good!!

My baby is allergic to bananas of all things but before he was born we used to love eating banana cream pie. Here's a really quick recipe.

Quick Banana Cream Pie

1 ready-bake graham cracker pie crust
1 box banana cream instant pudding & pie filling
1 box french vanilla instant pudding & pie filling
1 large banana
1 can of whipped cream in a can
concentrated lemon juice

Bake your crust in the oven for approximately 5 minutes. Let cool.

Mix both boxes of pudding together in a bowl, set aside

Slice banana, put in a bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Make sure you mix so that all the bananas are covered. (This prevents them from browning).

Layer bottom of Graham cracker crust with sliced banana.

Add a layer of pudding mix on top of the banana.

Add layer of banana on top of pie, but only in center, don't cover the edges.

Chill pie.

When ready to eat remove your pie and make peaks around the edge of the entire pie with your whipped cream.

Quick and super easy!

I love this recipe Almond Joy Bars
Ingredients (26 servings)
4 c (8 1/2−oz) shredded coconut
1/4 c Light corn syrup
1 pk (11 1/2−oz) milk chocolate pieces
1/4 c Vegetable shortening
26 Whole natural almonds (1−oz)
Line two large cookie sheets with waxed paper. Set large wire cooling rack
on paper; set aside.
Place coconut in large bowl; set aside.
Place corn syrup in a 1−cup glass measure. Microwave on high (100%) 1 minute
or until syrup boils. Immediately pour over coconut. Work warm syrup into
coconut using the back of a wooden spoon until coconut is thoroughly coated.
This takes a little time, and yes, there is enough syrup.
Using 1 level measuring tablespoon of coconut, shape into a ball by
squeezing coconut firmly in palm of one hand, then rolling between both
palms. (HINT: Measure out all of the coconut then roll into balls.) Place 2
inches apart on wire racks. Let dry 10 minutes. Reroll coconut balls so
there are no loose ends of coconut sticking up.
Place milk chocolate and shortening in a 4−cup glass measure or 1 1/2 quart
microwave−safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture can
be stirred smooth and is glossy; stirring once or twice.
Working quickly, spoon 1 level measuring tablespoon of the chocolate
over each coconut ball, making sure chocolate coats and letting excess
chocolate drip down onto waxed paper. While chocolate coating is still soft,
lightly press whole almond on top of each. Let stand to set or place
in refrigerator. Store in a single layer in airtight container.
Keeps best if refrigerated. Makes 26.

I love making these and they really do taste like the real thing. York Peppermint Patties
1 (14−ounce) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
green or red food coloring, optional
6 cups confectioners' sugar
Additional confectioners' sugar
1 − 16 oz. bag semi−sweet chocolate chips
In large mixer bowl, combine Eagle Brand, extract and food coloring if
desired. Add 6 cups sugar; beat on low speed until smooth and well blended.
Turn mixture onto surface sprinkled with confectioners sugar. Knead lightly
to form smooth ball. Shape into 1−inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on wax
paper−lined baking sheets. Flatten each ball into a 1 ½−inch patty. Let dry
1 hour or longer; turn over and let dry at least 1 hour.Melt the chocolate
chips in a microwave set on high for 2 minutes. Stir halfway through the
heating time. Melt thoroughly, but do not overheat. Melting the chocolate
chips can also be done using a double−boiler over low heat. With fork, dip
each patty into warm chocolate (draw fork lightly across rim of pan to
remove excess coating). Invert onto wax paper−lined baking sheets; let stand
until firm. Store covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.

I tried this recipe out for the first time last weekend. It was a huge hit!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles

1 cup peanut butter (I use Skippy Naturals)
¾ cup sugar (if you are using regular peanut butter, start with ½ cup and taste after)
¼ teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
2 cups chocolate melts (such as Wilton), almond bark, or chocolate chips
Sprinkles and/or chopped peanuts for decoration

1. Stir together the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, and milk in a medium bowl. The mixture will be thick. Drop by tablespoonfulls onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. (I use a 1-inch cookie scoop for this step.) Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
2. Melt your chocolate in the microwave safe bowl according to the package directions. I like to do mine at 50% power for 1 minute, stir, then additional increments of 30 seconds (also on 50% power) stirring in between, until it is melted. Dip the peanut butter cookie dough balls in the chocolate and place on the cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
3. Top with sprinkles or chopped nuts. Chill until firm.

Tips for dipping:

I like to heat my electric griddle on very low heat (200°) and cover it with two kitchen towels. I then set my bowl of melted chocolate on the griddle so the chocolate stays liquid. Stir it every once in a while to make sure the sides don’t harden.

Add your peanut butter ball to the chocolate and (using a spoon) cover it with chocolate. I then use a toothpick to pick it up and set it on the cookie sheet, first dabbing off the excess chocolate with the spoon. Sometimes the toothpick will slide out easily; other times I will use a second toothpick to gently ease the first one out of the truffle. If the hole is large, use the spoon to cover with a little chocolate. It doesn’t need to look perfect; that’s what the sprinkles are for!

I chill my truffles in the refrigerator for about an hour before packaging or stacking.

Yield: about 24 truffles

I love summer and FRESH fruit (where I live, you have about 3 months to really enjoy summer and fruit). Here is my favorite dessert recipe of the summer:

2 peaches, sliced (or more to taste. You can also use apples)
2 packages cinnamon oatmeal (use the maple for more earthy flavor)
1/3 Cup Flour
1/3 cup butter melted (real butter tastes the best)
Preheat oven to 425 Degrees. Butter a 2 quart baking dish by buttering sides and bottom. Combine the oatmeal and flower is a bowl, add butter until mixture is crumbly. Lay peaches on the bottom the pan, sprinkle oatmeal mixture over and bake for 15 minutes.

Service with vanilla ice cream (or yogurt or sorbet!)

8. Once the mixture is fully coated, place in a large serving bowl.

9. Coat any additional pieces by shaking the mixture in the powdered sugar filled bag. Add powdered sugar to the bag as needed until all the mixture is coated.

An alternative is to cook the meatballs the night before and put them in the freezer. In the morning make the sauce in the crockpot and let heat on high for 20 minutes and add frozen meatballs. Change setting to low and cook for 6-8 hours.

Im super excited as its almost the season for Fresh Peach Frozen Yogurt!!!

3 large, ripe peaches, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cups plain whole milk yogurt
Put the peaches, sugar, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender and purée. (If you do want to add vodka to keep the mix from getting icy in the freezer, add it before you blend.)
Transfer the peach mixture to a large bowl and stir in the yogurt. If you have time, chill the base in the refrigerator for an hour or so (not completely necessary, but an extra safeguard if your ice cream maker isn't very powerful).
Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the directions. Serve immediately or transfer to a container and allow to firm up for an hour or two in the freezer.
Then add 2 spoons and share with the one you love! Enjoy

Creamy Cherry Cola Jello

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 (15 ounce) can pitted Bing cherries in water
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into pieces
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle cola-flavored carbonated beverage, or as needed.
1 (3 ounce) package cherry gelatin

Drain the pineapple juice and cherry water into a 2-cup measuring cup. Pour enough cola to make 2 cups; discard (or drink!) the remaining soda. Pour the cola mixture into a saucepan.
Bring the cola mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, then stir in the pineapple, cherries, cream cheese, and cherry gelatin until gelatin dissolves, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a mold or glass baking dish. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.

Make sure you mix the cream cheese in all the way, it is best if it is room temperature. You can substitute cherry pie filling if you can't find canned cherries, or if you don't like them, but you may need to reduce the liquid a bit if you do that.

Meringue Cookies:

2 cups sliced almonds
4 egg whites
Pinch kosher salt
3/4 cups sugar
Pinch ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Toast the almonds on a baking sheet in the oven until they are golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. When the almonds are toasted coarsely chop either by hand or in a food processor.

Put the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer and add a pinch of salt. On the second highest speed of the mixer beat the egg whites until they come to medium peaks. With the mixer running, gently sprinkle in the sugar and cinnamon. Beat until stiff peaks form, then remove the bowl from the mixer. Gently fold in the chopped almonds in 3 additions.

Drop the batter in 1-inch balls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 14 minutes. Remove from the oven & cool.

Oreo Cheescake truffle balls
1 pack of oreo cookies
1 brick cream cheese (8 ounce) softened
1 lb bag choc buttons
-or other melting chocolate
take pack of oreo's- crush them up in a baggie, (I use rolling pin to smash them all up)
take out about 1/4 cup to use for topping later) then mix in the softened cream cheese, mix really well, form into about 40-48 balls, I try to make them about golf ball size, put oreo balls in freezer for 1 hr to firm up,
melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler
add several balls at a time to coat completely in choc and when you take them out of melted choc immediately sprinkle on little bit of the reserved oreo crumbs and then lay the oreo's out to cool and continue dipping the balls and topping with crumbs until all are dipped and topped, return them to the freezer for about 30 min to setup and then enjoy, they are so good and you can substitute oreo for nutter butter cookies and its like a reese cup, but better, and you can also switch up the choc and use white chocolate or any colored chocolate of your choice, these can be made with actually any cookie, even choc chip or vanilla wafers whatever you like just crush, mix with cream cheese and dip into melted choc so easy and so good, Thanks for the great giveaway

Oreo Pie:

1/2 cup hot fudge dessert topping (or a little more, I don’t usually measure it)
1 graham cracker crust or Oreo cookie crust (we prefer the Oreo)
1 8 ounce cool whip, thawed
1 1/4 cup milk
2 packages (4 serving size) Jello Oreo flavored instant pudding and pie filling

Spread hot fudge topping onto the crust (if the hot fudge is very thick, microwave it for about 25 seconds). In a bowl mix together milk and pudding mixes. Whisk together for 2 minutes or until well blended. Mixture will be thick. Fold in cool whip. Spoon over fudge layer in crust. If you have Oreo’s crush up a few and sprinkle on top. This is not necessary but tastes good. For an ice cream type pie freeze for 4 hours or overnight. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving. For a pudding type pie refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. We prefer the frozen but both ways are good.

Kelly said...

One of my favorites is a very simple combo:

My mother in law is the desert queen in our family, Im the dinner master, so this is gonna be lame so prepare yourself.

Chocolate almond shake

1 Good Squeeze of Hersheys Syrup (amount depends on your chocolate taste preference)
2 Large Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
1/4 cup Milk
1 cup almonds

"Tools needed"

Food Processor
Ice cream scoop
2 large glasses

Get out your toughest food processor and chop the life out of the almonds. You want them in tiny little slivers. As a matter of fact, just turn on the processor and let it go until you are done doing the rest of the stuff hehe.

Throw the ice cream and syrup in the blender and pour the milk in. Set blender to low to get the stuff mixing up a little bit, then turn off food processor and put the almonds into the blender and continue to blend until desired consistency it met. Pour into glasses and voila!

We make this for the hubby and me every friday night after dinner, for my 2 little ones its the same minus the almonds (because my son doesnt like them and my daughter isnt old enough for nuts yet)


Ashley N said...

This is my mother in laws recipe.

No Bake chocolate oatmeal cookies with NO PEANUT BUTTER! (so its safe for the little ones!)

1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa
3 cups quick cooking oats

Some say to add a pinch of salt, I dont though and it turns out fine. We are careful about sodium around here because of dietary needs so we cut out salt whenever we can.

Bring the butter, milk, cocoa, and sugar to a boil, boil for 1 minute and add vanilla, and the oats.

Mix well. Then working quickly, drop by the teaspoonful on waxed paper and cool in the fridge for half an hour.

You can do this with 1/2 cup peanut butter in it as well, but only use the creamy kind. And if you DO want to use salt then only use a pinch of it. If you use peanut butter, then you can let it cool on the counter since it will still stick together.

{Chocolate Soup}
You will need:

*Mix milk and Packaged Hot Chocolate and cook on the stove top until it is heated through.
*Add your "Chocolate Soup" to your serving bowls.
*Sprinkle a small hand full of mini marshmallows into each bowl.
* Top with whipped cream.
* Grate your frozen chocolate bar over the whipped cream.(I use my potato peeler)

Pink Fluff I think is what grandma called it... this is not my recipe and I am not sure where it comes from, but it is a hit during the summer months.

2 boxes of cherry jello
1 can fruit cocktail
1 tub cool whip

Make the jello as directed on the box, place in the fridge. Once it is set some, add the fruit cocktail, and let it harden the rest of the way. After it is all hardened... mix in the cool whip! Yummy.

We love making cranberry freezies :) It's a family recipe as far as I know.

2 c. water
2 c. sugar
2 c. cold water
1 lb cranberries
1 tsp grated orange peel
1/4 c lemon juice

Cook the cranberries in two cups of water until the skins are broken (around 10-15 minutes), then rub them on a sieve to make them into pulp. Stir in the lemon juice, orange peel and sugar. Stir in the cups of cold water and pour into a dish large enough to hold the mixture.

Alternate freezing and stirring until it has a firm consistency. Take it out for a few minutes before serving it so it will thaw a little and voila! Deliciousness. :)

Ugh, how are we supposed to choose only two? Lol. Now I'm hungry. This one is great for summer and/or breakfast and holds 22% of your daily fiber (which I know I need).
Cantaloupe Berry Soup

Flesh from 1 cantaloupe (3 lbs.), cut in chunks
8 fresh mint leaves, chopped
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blackberries
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon honey

Whirl cantaloupe in a blender until smooth. Stir in mint, then divide among 4 small bowls. Top each bowl with equal amounts of raspberries and blackberries. Mix yogurt and honey together, then dollop 1 tbsp. onto each soup.

My second recipe is something my mom used to make a lot to put into our lunches for school, so I think it'd be great for back to school treats.

Chocolate Cereal Treats

1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla
4 c. rice crisp cereal
1 c. confectioners sugar
2 c. chocolate chips of choice (milk/dark)

Combine chocolate chips, margarine and corn syrup in sauce pan. Put on low heat and stir until completely melted. Take it off the stove so it doesn't catch fire!

Add in the vanilla and sugar, then add in cereal. Stir carefully until it's well mixed but not crushed. Spread in a pan (size depends on the thickness you want - bigger pans for thinner treats, smaller for thicket) coated with cooking spray or oil.

Chill for an hour or two, cut into squares, and try not to eat them all!

Right now we're flipping for frozen choco covered bananas.

Put lollipop sticks in mini bananas about 1/3 of the way up.

Melt semi sweet or milk choco in double boiler, microwave, fondue pot or mini crock.

Dip banana into chocolate.

Roll in sprinkles, chopped nuts, coconut or topping of your choice.

Lay flat on cookie sheet covered in waxed or parchment paper and freeze until solid.

Move into Ziploc bag once they are solid- they won't stick together.

Both of my recipes are ones I came up with for my blog. :)

Strawberry Mojito Popsicles
Serves 4

1 1/2 cup ripe strawberries, quartered
juice and zest from one whole lime
1/4 cup fresh mint
1/4 cup soymilk (optional--I like adding a little milk to my fruit pops for a slightly softer texture)
1 tbsp agave nectar (this recipe is for tart popsicles--add more agave if you prefer sweeter pops)

Add 1 1/4 cup of strawberries and remaining ingredients to food processor and process until smooth. Stir in remaining strawberries or, if using the Zoku, carefully stick strawberries on sides of molds. Pour fruit mixture into popsicle molds. Serve when frozen solid (about 5 minutes in the Zoku).

Fat Elvis Pudding Pops
Serves 4

1 banana, sliced
1/4 c. chocolate milk (I use soymilk)
2 chocolate pudding cups (I use ZenSoy)
3 tbsp. natural peanut butter, room temperature

Combine first three ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour 1/3 of chocolate mixture in molds, top with 1/2 of the softened peanut butter, another 1/3 of the chocolate mixture, the remaining peanut butter, and finally the last third of the chocolate mixture. These take about 15 minutes to set in the Zoku--if you're not using the Zoku, freeze until solid.
