An Elf’s Favorite: Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cookies

December 18th, 2014 | Filed under: cookie recipies helpful hints Holiday traditions seasonal recipes | Posted by Elf jennifer

These little bites are the perfect escape for your taste buds this holiday season! Mrs. Claus makes these delectable treats for us elves when we’ve had an exceptionally busy day. They have a light crisp exterior and a gooey melty interior, and not to say they are most pleasing to the eye on any holiday table!

Cookies

To make these charming treats all you need is:

3 tablespoons butter, melted

½ cup sugar

1 large egg

½ teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

½ cup flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

⅛ teaspoon salt

¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips

Powdered Sugar

– In an electric mixing bowl combine the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth.

– Crack the egg in and mix until smooth

– In a separate bowl whisk together the cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt.

– Add the flour to the wet mixture sifting little by little, mixing between each add.

– Then fold in the chocolate chips.

– Now cover the bowl and allow to chill in the fridge for at least an hour, until the dough is firm enough to handle.

– While the dough is chilling prepare your baking pans by lining them with foil. This helps to prevent powdered sugar from sticking to your bakeware.

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare ½ cup of powdered sugar into a small bowl (you may need more but this is a good start).

– After the dough is chilled, use a spoon to form 1 inch balls and roll them in the powdered sugar until coated all around.

– Bake for 12 minutes.

Enjoy!

December 21st, 2013 | Filed under: cookie recipies helpful hints Holiday traditions seasonal recipes | Posted by Elf jennifer

These Christmas Crunchies are such a delectable treat! Everyone always seems apprehensive of these at first because they are a little odd looking, but they are so delicious! Sweet, salty, and crunchy!

Ingredients:

1 (12 oz) package of butterscotch chips

2 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter

1 small package (12 oz) of fried chow mien noodles

Tasty Holiday Treats

(The golden treats)

Directions:

Place chips and peanut butter in a saucepan and melt over very low heat, stirring constantly so not to burn.

Once it is melted through, take it off the heat and add the fried chow mien noodles.

Gently fold to coat all the noodles in the butterscotch mixture.

Place wax paper over your counter and begin spooning the mixture onto the wax paper. Make small balls, the size of small cookies. Allow to cool for 1 hour.

Enjoy!
