Chocolate brownie trees with mint white chocolate drizzle are a festive and fun treat and are perfect for all ages. A light mint drizzle and holiday sprinkles decorate the top of these moist, tree shaped brownies.
Today I have a recipe for a classic candy that’s best known in Ohio – Peanut Butter Buckeyes. It’s called a buckeye because it resembles the nut from the state tree, the buckeye tree. This candy has a sweet peanut butter filling and a hard chocolate coating. The key trait is the peanut butter peeking through on the top. I like to jazz mine up a bit with crushed peanuts or chocolate sprinkles, but they are also delicious plain. If you are a fan of chocolate and peanut butter, this recipe is for you!
Week of Cookies continues with a festive and simple cookie. Today I’d like to share with you my recipe for for Mint Chocolate Shortbread Cookies. These cookies have a rich chocolate taste with a hint of mint. They’re dipped in dark chocolate and adorned with a few Christmas sprinkles. My husband and I both agreed that these cookies were practically a thin mint twin. Hopefully the girl scouts don’t come after me!
Today I want to share a recipe for Caramel and Pecan Chocolate Turtle Cookies. These cookies combine all of the flavors of the classic turtle candy: chocolate, caramel, and pecans. The caramel bits used inside the cookie are soft and sweet. They are the perfect accompaniment to the crunchy pecans coating the outside of this cookie.
