3-minute fudge I made to satiate my mint chocolate craving this week and the Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bars I just had to try (they contain garbanzo beans, butternut squash and my kids loved them!).
Here are how some of my recipes turned out:
Peanut Butter Nanaimo Bars
I think these were probably my favorite this year. Should have made a second batch!
|Yes, that is a doll hand on the right and I didn't bother cropping out the ugly dish towel.|
These weren't as much like the cookie as I'd hoped, and they were a lot of work.
3-Minute 3-Ingredient Mint Fudge
Super easy and delicious. I used Andes mint chips and saved a few to melt on top after mixing the fudge, and got this cool marbled look by holding the pan on its side and letting them run a bit.
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars (flourless)
These are very soft and yummy. Butternut squash and Garbanzo beans (pureed) take the place of flour! Gluten free (if you use gluten-free oats) and could be dairy-free if they make dairy-free chocolate. They must, although I've never tried it.
In addition to these, I also made:
Pecan Crescents (family recipe for Almond Crescents that I use Pecans in instead. Similar to this recipe.)
Double Chocolate M&M Cookies (a Family Circle Recipe)
Chewy Gingerbread - our favorite gingerbread cookie!
Peppermint Kisses - also from Family Circle, I think- basically a peanut butter blossom but with sugar-type cookie and Hershey's Candy Cane kisses instead.
White Chocolate Cherry Almond Sandwiches These are just ok, I don't think I like almond butter, sadly. They are better after sitting a day or two though.
Merry Christmas (or Happy Festivus, or Christmas Eve Eve!)
