If you twitter, you no doubt have tweeted with many interesting and delightful peeps.
It is what makes twitter wonderful....people from all over the world in one stream of rolling chatter, giggles, information, laughter, links, quotes, randomness, seriousness, silliness and on and on.
It was through twitter that I was turned onto 2 of the best treat recipes I've tried.
Thanks to mermaidencreations who got me started on a whole cremesicle kick with this first recipe. For days after getting this recipe, I had cremesicle brain. Even made a cremesicle treasury that I blame on mermaiden. lol She is a cremesicle temptress and was kind enough to share this awesome recipe. You will love it, kids will devour it!
Laughs and giggles with mermaiden on twitter
She has a blog too!
Cremesicle rice krispies
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies
about 1cup white chocolate chips
1tsp+ orange extract
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
Add orange extract and remove from heat.
Add rice krispie cereal and the white chocolate chips Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray.
Alternate here: leave the white chocolate for the end. Dip the cooled and cut treats into melted white chocolate to coat.
Thanks to browneyedpea for this totally yummy recipe.
She was kind enough to stop in our Etsy shop and share this recipe.
I was delighted with her witty write up of the recipe.
Be warned: these are irresistible and will disappear in a day or 2 tops.
Also love the cutting, no drop method tip!
Catch Pea on twitter for some lovely tweetness.
Drugstore Cowboy Cookies
(These cookies are simplified from a proper cowboy cookie recipe, and so are "drugstore")
1 cup butter
2 cups (tightly-packed) dark brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten before adding
½ tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour, sifted with:
½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup pecans
Cream butter; add brown sugar and mix until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and combine thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients to the batter in stages and mix thoroughly. Mix the rolled oats and pecans in by hand.
Virtuously resisting the temptation to eat the batter raw, spread it into a 9"x13" cake pan and bake at 325°F for twenty minutes. Allow to cool before slicing. Makes four dozen cookies.
One may also make drop cookies with the batter, but . . . who has the energy—or the patience?
