Moon pies are another one of those treats that you probably know very well if you grew up in the South. While Whoopie pies were making the rounds up North we were quietly (and demurely I’m sure) nibbling the chocolate coating off the scalloped edges of Moon Pies. On the veranda. Barefoot. In March.
As far as I can remember they came in three different flavors; banana, strawberry, and chocolate. They were basically a sort of crumbly not-quite-graham cracker cookie sandwich, with marshmallow cream in the middle and coated in a thin coating of chocolate. My personal favorite was the banana. Or the strawberry. Or the chocolate. Continue reading →
Thumbrpint cookies describe a huge variety of flavors, fillings, and textures but they all have one thing in common. Everyone loves them. I made these for Valentine’s Day and they were a big hit – but you could make them anytime with plain hershey’s Kisses, Dove chocolate squares, or whatever you like.
The cookie dough is easy to make and flavored with finely chopped white chocolate. Once you have the dough made you just make walnut sized balls and roll them in chopped pecans. Continue reading →
If you like cookies and cream ice cream or cheesecake you’ll probably love this dip. It has all of that cookies and cream flavor with the tang of cream cheese. Chopped white chocolate is folded in for extra flavor. Delicious!
This is a sweet dip but if you like a sweet/salty combo consider using pretzel rods, pretzels, potato chips, or Ritz crackers as dippers. Continue reading →
It all started with almond bark – you just melted chocolate, dumped on some toasted, chopped almonds, let it harden and then you had candy. Easy and perfect for gift giving.
It was easy. Then someone decides that you could add things other than almonds, and that my friends is how we get to this… Rocky Road Bark.
White chocolate, milk chocolate, pecans, marshmallows, caramels, and pecans. so easy that the kids can make it but so yummy that you will probably want to make two batches before anyone gets home and save one for yourself. The white chocolate is rich, the marshmallows and caramel are chewy, and the nuts are crunchy. Milk chocolate is just the icing on the cake – so to speak. This goes great in a candy dish with the mint oreo cookie bark.
This makes a great gift for teachers, Sunday school teachers, friends and… umm.. I guess anyone who is not allergic to nuts…. it is sooooo good.
It really is a quick recipe that you can sprinkle red and green jimmies on for Christmas if you like. It looks fabulous broken in pieces and wrapped in a little tulle tied with a silk ribbon. But you had better make several batches..this seems to evaporate in about a minute.
I have a recipe written in a spidery handwriting on a faded piece of torn notebook paper. It has intrigued me forever because it sounded so special – Waldorf Red Cake. This recipe was my grandmother’s and I am guessing it is from the late 1920s or early 1930s. Yep, you guessed it – it’s a fancy name for good old red velvet cake.
Food historians believe that red velvet cake got its color from a reaction between the acids in buttermilk and the alkalinity in the old type of cocoa. Continue reading →
