These cookies may look a little out of season but I guarantee you I was thinking SPRING all the way! I was so happy to see the sun the other day I got kind of caught up in the yellows and oranges that you see with a nice sunny sky! :)

So hopefully that explains the yellow and orange. Use any color of nonpareils (the little ball sprinkles) you like. Use whatever color makes you happy!

The flavor of the honey peanut butter really adds a nice touch to the cookies. Think of the cookies as being honey kissed. There’s just enough wonderful honey flavor to make these cookies extra tasty and extra special for Spring!

Today my friends, I have for you my Chocolate-Dipped Honey Peanut Butter Cookies! Enjoy!

For the first time ever I made Dipped Vanilla Wafer Cookies! Everyone and their brother has made these things other than me, until now. So I thought I would give it a whirl. You guys know I always tell you truth so here it goes. I really wasn’t expecting much.

People dunk these wafers in all kinds of good stuff and I always just kind of thought…whatevs. You know?

After the chocolate dried I decided I had to finally try one. Then I tried another one. They were SO good! I kid you not, I think I ate about 10 or 12 of these things! The flavors are simple yet delicious and keep you coming back for more!

My kids had the same kind of so, so reaction at first then it happened. I knew they loved them when they started fighting over who was eating more cookies! If you have kids you know that means – YES!!

So friends I share with you today my version of Dipped Vanilla Wafer Cookies! Enjoy!

Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s my version of a new Christmas Cookie that fits the way we live today! It’s always so nice when old and new come together in wonderful way!

2014-12-03_3828 Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest!   

So, I was at the Betty Crocker site a few days ago and I saw a version of these cookies. My kids just happened to be there and saw it too.

Normally I pretty much never do an adaptation of something I just saw; especially something I just saw recently. Good or bad I like to do my own thing. These cookies are however the exception, only because chocolate chip is my family’s favorite cookie!

Here’s a brief rundown of the conversation we had right after checking out the cookie. :)

the boys: WHAT, you can make chocolate chip cookies for Christmas? That’s a Christmas Cookie?

me: Of course guys, it’s really nothing new, just a fun modern twist.

the boys: Hey! You knew about this (like it’s a GIANT secret) and didn’t tell us?

me: Well I didn’t think there was anything to say (as I was thinking..duh). It’s just a chocolate chip cookie dipped in chocolate…

the boys: Isn’t that the point? (seriously looking at me like I’m some kind of crazy woman missing the point).

me: What do you mean?

the boys: So Christmas Cookies can be cookies we L-O-V-E and would want to eat anytime of the year? Not just the ones we’re suppose to like because it’s Christmas?

me: Note to self – keep it simple, keep it good! I am SO doing Christmas cookies and treats that fit the way we live today!

Let’s take a look at what I did with this new Christmas Cookie. I’m quite sure once you have them like this you will want to make them again and again. Yes, they’re that good! :)

chocolate dipped shortbread bars_021

Shhh, don’t tell anyone but I love shortbread! So each year when the holiday season comes around I make several different kinds. The buttery delicious flavor of shortbread is just one of those flavors that brings me straight back to being a kid.

If you haven’t made shortbread before, give it a try, you might just like it, no you will love it! There are just a few basic ingredients and the flavor is fantastic. It’s the butter! :)

So over the next few weeks, I’m going to show you a few of my favorite shortbreads and I think you guys are going to love them too!

Dipped PB Cookied with Reese's Pieces

Okay, I have mentioned many, many times that I think every home cook, female or male, should always have a few of their favorite mixes in the pantry. There are just times when you want to make a little special something for the family, or company drops by and you need a little something, quick and easy.

You can always bake from scratch on the weekend, or whatever day works best for you. Really, it’s no big deal to use a mix here and there!

We’re in some kind of strange holding pattern for weather this year. I don’t know what’s going on. Everything is just kind of off this spring, The boys were digging for “just the right thing” and weren’t finding it. We needed a little treat today, and cookies are by far our first choice. :)

I haven’t done peanut butter cookies in a while, so maybe some type of a peanut butter cookie, and of course chocolate must be included. So, I got a mix out of my pantry, yes I have them too, for days like these, and thought about what I could make my crew.

This is what I came up with – Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies with Reese’s Pieces. No they aren’t anything brand new, or incredibly different. They aren’t suppose to be. These cookies are just plain old GOOD!

They were simply meant to put a smile on my family’s face, and they did just that. :)

DIPPED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES WITH REESE’S PIECES

megamommy.com

megamommy.com

INGREDIENTS

1 pouch Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix

1 egg, oil, and water as called for back of package

1 bag of chocolate chips, whatever kind you prefer

(I used chocolate Candi-Quick only because I had a package that needed to be used up. Normally I would use milk chocolate flavored chocolate chips)

Reese’s Pieces, if desired

DIRECTIONS

1. Follow the instructions on the back of the package for ingredients and bake time.

2. I always make my cookies in a whoopie pie pan, or with a larger than usual scoop. So my bake time is different than the package. Follow the mix and you’ll be fine.

3. Allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack. Heat your chocolate chips in the microwave as it states on the back of the package. The biggest thing to remember is not to over-heat the chips.

4. Stir the chips until the melted chocolate is silky smooth. Begin dipping your cookies one at a time. Be sure to have a wire rack with wax paper under it to catch the dripping chocolate.

5. Immediately after placing cookie on wire rack to drip, garnish with desired amount of Reese’s Pieces, if desired. You can either do a specific pattern, or simply sprinkle the Reese’s Pieces wherever you want to.

6. Allow chocolate on cookies to dry, place in an airtight container and place in fridge. They will keep better in the fridge.
