Over the last several weeks we have made a number of Christmas goodies and treats, some of which I have shared with you. One of the things I made was something new.
I took Nilla Wafers, laid them out on a baking sheet, and topped them with Rolos.
I put them in the oven at 200 degrees, for 5 minutes, to soften the candy.
Then I topped each one with another Nilla Wafer.
|You have to be really careful when you place |
the top cookie or it squishes out the side.
When I got them all put together, I put them in the fridge for 10 minutes to help them start setting up. After I took them out, I let them sit for several hours, until they were completely firm.
Next, I melted a package of vanilla almond bark.
|In my spotlessly clean microwave...|
Apparently I didn't get any pictures of the dipping, but here they are all laid out.
All packaged up.
Here are a few other things I made.
|Pretzels dipped in almond bark. We had chocolate, |
drizzled with vanilla; and vanilla, drizzled with chocolate.
|These are reeeeally tough to make. Melt almond bark, stir in Rice|
Krispies, spread out to cool. Once it's cool, break into small pieces.
We have several family cookie recipes that I love, but it just wasn't coming together this year to fool with scratch, so slice and bake it was! I did dress some of them up by adding M&Ms and such. One of the best was chopping Butterfinger up and adding it to peanut butter cookie dough. That was seriously good!

Here's the assortment.
|Almond Bark Crispies, Dipped Pretzels, White Trash |
Candy, Dipped Nilla Wafers, and M&M Pretzel Treats.
The White Trash is easy peasy too, just mix up Crispix, pretzels, M&Ms, and vanilla almond bark. I got the recipe from Cooking With K. It's pretty yummy.
We had lots of cookies too.
|Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter with M&Ms, Peanut Butter with Butterfinger, Chocolate |
Chip, Chocolate Chip with M&Ms, Sugar Cookies, and Peppermint Sugar Cookies.
Last but not least, Chex Mix!
|I've lost track of how much I have made this year!|
