It’s week three and Nine Days till Christmas. Can you believe it?
I have no christmas baking in the house. None. Zippo. Nada. Why? My children keep eating it. LOL
Thank you to all those who participated last week – it was an awesome prize and I’m so thrilled to state that Shadow Kohler won! Shadow – please send me an email at email@example.com so we can grab your address and mail out the awesome basket of goodies you won!
Week three is epic. Awesome prize pack valued at $75 – but it’s a secret and you’ll have to wait to see what you win! Again – just share your recipes to win!
I learned early on that one way to my husband’s heart was with cookies. He’s not a sweet guy (which is great since it means more chocolate for me) but when it comes to warm cookies…he can’t keep his hands off. Funny story – when we first met, my car was having issues and he took a look at it and fixed it for me. My way of thanking him (since he had a girlfriend at the time) was to bake him some chocolate chip cookies. The moment he bit into one – well…the rest is history 🙂
My sister-in-law shared this recipe with me when I was first married. Every time I make these cookies, my husband tends to stand over my shoulder with a spoon and eat the mixture right out of the pot. If I do manage to get some on the parchment paper, he eats those too while they are still warm. I will admit – I tend to wait till he’s home before I make them since I know they are a weak spot. And I may (ahem) have made some in hopes to divert his attention when I had bad news to share in the past. HAHAHA (shhh…that’s our secret).
Now it’s your turn! Share your favorite “NO BAKE” recipe in the comments below 🙂 When you share (or tag me on FB with a recipe or on Pinterest) you’re entered to win…and this week’s prize basket is AWESOME!
Those sound so yummy! A lot like No Bake Cookies, love those! So need to make a batch of them. Its been away. lol I love cookies! I just tried this one, so good!!
SECRET KISS COOKIES
1 cup (2 sticks) butter of margarine, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts–I use slivered almonds
1 bag (6 oz) Hershey’s kiss milk chocolates–I use Hershey’s with almonds
In large mixer bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add flour and walnuts/almonds; beat on low speed of electric mixer until well blended. Cover; refrigerate dough 1 – 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.
Remove wrappers from chocolates. Heat oven to 375. Using approx. 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie, shape dough around each chocolate piece; roll to make ball. (Be sure to cover each chocolate piece completely). Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set but not brown. Cool slightly; Remove from cookie sheet to write rack.
While still slightly warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container. Roll again in powdered sugar just before serving.
