Happy February everyone! Also, happy Super Bowl Sunday! I will be posting some recipes this week from our Super Bowl snackingpalooza, but for now, I wanted to post something different. Have you ever seen recipes that are “copycat” ones, such as: copycat Red Lobster cheddar biscuits, Twinkies, Olive Garden bread sticks, etc.? Well this one post is similar to a copycat post. It’s just slightly different, but the flavors are the exact same. No bake Twix cookies. These taste like a Twix bar, but better.
Now, I’m not under the delusion that everyone will love all of my recipes on here. We all have different taste buds, which I appreciate. I certainly don’t like everything that Samuel likes. Having said that, I love posting interesting recipes that are fun and unique. I have really started enjoying trying new things in the kitchen since starting my blog in November. This recipe fall under that category. Will everyone like it? No. It’s different and definitely not the norm.
Have you ever eaten a food and wondered where it had been your whole life? It was almost a food epiphany really. Well, I had that. I was making cookies (yes, I made cookies twice this week don’t judge me) again, only this time was different. As I was making them, I thought they looked and smelled pretty good. Then, I baked them. Then, I ate one. My world exploded into colors I’ve never seen before. These are really, really good. If you’ve never had a cookie like this, you’ll wonder where it has been your whole life.
Sometimes simple is better. Not only are simple recipes less time consuming, they yield just as tasty foods. I decided I wanted to go a simple route for some cookies. I love baking, it’s really “my thing.” Therefore, I never got into no bake cookies. I can’t even remember if I’ve made them before. It just wasn’t a thing I would do. So, I decided to give them a try.
Now that Christmas has come and gone, I should probably finish my last installment of Christmas candies. Although, who am I kidding? Candy is perfect any time of the year. However, I specifically made this recipe for my family for Christmas. I have made it a few times, and it’s always been a hit. It’s another salty and sweet combination, and we all know how much I love salty and sweet.
I have always been a fan of the “old fashioned” Christmas candies. This love comes from many years of enjoying candies as a kid and making them as an adult. There is one type of old fashioned candy I love to make above all others: fudge. I have been making fudge since I was in high school. I have made this particular recipe countless times, and I will say it is my most requested recipe by my family every Christmas.
Merry Christmas Eve! Hard to believe it is that time again. In my quest to make simpler desserts around the holidays, I came across some posts about vanilla wafers being transformed into cakes. You may have seen these across Pinterest or on the boxes of vanilla wafers at the store. They seemed very easy, and this fit the bill of easy desserts to make before Christmas. I’m so glad I gave these a try!
