Random….

December 8, 2008

I won a set of blocks! My boys are going to be so excited! It’s the first time I won something for them!  She just let me know they are in the mail. 🙂

I just made this caramel popcorn for a Christmas party. I think next time I will use the oven, but other than that is was so good. I used semi sweet chocolate instead of the milk chocolate it called for. Oh……and I forgot the peanuts. I ended up sprinkling some walnuts right at the end.

These sound like something my DH would like:

Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough BallsIngredients:
1-1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
8 oz mini choc chips (I just dump whatever in the bowl I don’t measure)
8 oz milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee bits(optional)

 

Directions:
Mix first seven ingredients and roll into balls. Place o a lined cookie sheet(I use wax paper) and chill for 30 minutes.

Melt a bowl of chocolate. Dip cookie dough balls into the milk chocolate. Let harden on cookie sheet. Then sprinkle with toffee bits(optional). Place in fridge until ready to serve.

I got this recipe off of Sewing Mamas and one of the ladies said to add a splash of whipping cream to help the dough stick together better.
