    I've taken buckeyes to swaps. Everyone loves them!

    This recipe makes A LOT and can be halved or even quartered. I make the whole recipe and sit on the couch w/ the bowl in my lap and make about a million balls and freeze 'em for gifts.

    1 lb. softened butter
    2 lbs. peanut butter
    3 lbs. sifted confectioner's sugar

    Mix well (I whiz it up in the food processor

    Shape into balls... they don't roll really well so I sort of form them w/ my fingers (and have claw hands when I'm done!)

    Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler (the whole recipe might take 3 or more 12-ounce bags, but I melt them in shifts... not the whole amt)

    Using a toothpick, spear each ball and dip it in the chocolate and put it on a cookie sheet. I smooth the hole w/ a clean toothpick.

    I put the cookie sheets in the freezer and when the balls are frozen, I put 'em in zip lock bags for storage.

    Melt in your mouth easy fudge. I made Christmas baskets with all the ingredients last year and each person had great complements when made.


    Kathy's Fudge

    1 1/2 teaspoons butter for pan coating

    3/4 cup butter (no substitutes)
    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
    3 tablespoons milk
    1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
    1 package (11 1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
    1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips
    1 cup butterscotch chips
    1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup chopped nuts

    Line a 13 by 9 by 2 inch pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 1/2 teaspoons of butter; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, melt the remaining butter over low heat. Add the next five ingredients. Cook and stir constantly until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in the butterscotch chips, marshmallow creme and extracts until well blended. Stir in nuts. Spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate until set. Lift out of pan and remove foil; cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.

    These are AMAZING, everyone I've made them for loves them. I usually half the recipe (this is supposed to make about 72 cookies), freeze them for about 45 minutes before rolling them in powdered sugar, and add chocolate chips and malted milk powder.

    1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 cups white sugar
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    4 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    Directions
    1.In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.
    2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls. I like to use a number 50 size scoop. Coat each ball in confectioners' sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets.
    3.Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.

    World's easiest Fudge

    1 bag of chocolate chips (or whichever flavour you choose - peanut butter, mint, vanilla, etc)
    1 container of frosting (your choice of flavour)

    Melt chips in microwave in 30 second bursts - mix well each time.

    When chips have melted, add the frosting and mix well. Nuke for another 30 seconds to make sure everything is well melted.

    Pour mixture into buttered square pan and cut into whatever shape you want. I've left them as squares and have also rolled bits between my palms for circles or ovals.

    Easy and so versatile

    Here are some of our favorites...


    PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
    I baked these for a total of 14 minutes...They turned out perfect!


    1-1/2 cups butter, softened (no substitutes)
    2 cups brown sugar
    1 cup sugar
    1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
    1 egg
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    4 cups all purpose flour
    2 cups quick cooking oats
    2 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. salt
    2 cups (12 oz pkg) chocolate chips


    In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in the pumpkin, egg and vanilla.
    Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
    Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
    Remove to wire racks to cool.

    Yield: 10 dozen


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    I make these for Christmas parties, pot lucks, baby showers, bridal showers etc. They're easy to make and always a huge hit!

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice

    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1 cup butterscotch chips
    1 cup peanut butter
    2 cups mini colored marshmallows

    Melt butter or margarine.
    Add chocolate and butterscotch chips, melt.
    Add peanut butter and mix until smooth.
    Remove from heat and cool long enough so that when you add the marshmallows, they do not melt.

    Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 glass pan with butter or margarine. Pour mixture into the pan and refrigerate. Slice into 1 1/2 inch squares for serving.

    ~OR~

    Butterscotch Peanut Butter Slice

    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    2 cups butterscotch chips
    1 cup peanut butter
    2 cups mini colored marshmallows

    Prepare as above.

    For get-togethers I cut them into little squares and put them in mini paper muffin tin liners.

    These are so good and so easy to make...I added 1 cup of fresh chopped walnuts...Delicious!!! I got about 44 cookies out of 1 batch...If you love brownies, these cookies are for you!


    Chewy Brownie Cookies

    Makes about 24 -36 cookies

    2/3 cup shortening
    1 1/2 cups lightly packed brown sugar
    1 tablespoon water

    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    1/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (12oz pkg)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Combine shortening, brown sugar, water and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
