Peanut Butter Butterscotch Rice Crispy Treats

This is an all time favorite!
Buttered Cake Pan
1 C. Karo Syrup
1 C. Sugar
1 C. Creamy Peanut Butter
6 C. Rice Crispy's
6 oz Butterscotch Chips
6 oz. Chocolate Chips

On medium heat melt together syrup and sugar until it starts to bubble stirring constantly
Remove from heat and add peanut butter and stir until it melts
Add rice crispy's and stir until coated
Press into pan. I use wax paper for this part.
While this is cooling
Melt the chips together in a microwave safe bowl
Spread over the rice crispy mix
Let cool until the chocolate top hardens.
Cut into squares and enjoy!

Magic Cookie Bars

Another Holiday favorite in our house

Preheat oven to 350

You will need
1 1/2 C. Graham Crackers
1/2 C. Butter
14 oz. Sweetened condensed milk
6 oz. chocolate chips
1 1/3 C. coconut
M&Ms for decoration

Crush 1 1/2 packages of graham crackers into fine like sand pieces
This should make 1 1/2 c. of graham cracker crumbs

Melt 1/2 cup of butter or margarine in a cake pan in the oven
Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over and lightly press them to cover the whole bottom.
Pour milk evenly over crumbs, spread with a spatula to make sure it covers the crumbs.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over the milk
Sprinkle the coconut over evenly
Press M&Ms into the top
I like to use the holiday red and green ones but any M&M's will do.

Bake until coconut is light brown.
Cool in pan and then cut into squares and enjoy!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie's are a Holiday favorite at our house.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Mix until creamy:
3/4 c. butter softened
1 egg slightly beaten
1 teas. vanilla
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 teas. baking powder
1/2 teas. baking soda
2 c. flour
1 c. white chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped macadamia nuts.
Mix until smooth
You may need to add some extra butter as this mix tends to be dry.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

I am posting some of the most asked for cookie's that I make for Christmas

#1 Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

I always make a double batch so buy 2 jars of maraschino cherry's !
This recipe contains the cookie batter, filling, cherry tops and the Chocolate drizzle mix.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

Cookie dough
1/2 c. sugar

3/4 c. softened butter

1 teas. vanilla

1 egg yolk

1 1/2 c flour

1/4 c cocoa powder

Combine sugar, butter, vanilla and egg yolk, beat until light and fluffy
Add flour and cocoa powder. Mix well. Chill for 2 hours
Shape into 1" balls and place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Indent the center of each.
Bake at 375 for 7 to 9 minutes until firm
Remove immediately to wire racks to cool
While cookies are cooling mix up the filling

1/4 c. soft butter

1 Tab. Brandy or you can add more to taste.

1 C. powdered sugar
(if you add more brandy add a little more powdered sugar too, you don't want the filling to be too runny. )
Mix until smooth.
The filling should have the consistency of frosting.
Drain Maraschino Cherry's
When cookies are cooled add a 1/2 of filling into each indent, place a cherry on top
In microwave safe bowl mix 1/2 c chocolate chips and 1 teas. oil until melted
Drizzle over the the cherry's and filling
Let them set until the chocolate hardens
They are very pretty cookies and they look very complicated but they are simple to make.
Have fun and enjoy!

ClaraBear Benefit

Hi Everyone.
We will be organizing a fund raiser on etsy for Clara.
She is a little baby in our community that is very sick and needs more surgery.
She is just the sweetest little baby!
Here is the blog so you can learn a little more about Clara.

I asked Amanda who is in charge of the blog if we could hold an etsy wide sale with a portion of our proceeds going to the ClaraBear Fund and her answer is below.

I would love to have more Etsy shops participate!
There are 4 of us so far 30% 30% 30% 30%

I will hold a drawing of all participating shops.
At least 2 but maybe more depending on how many shops we get to sign up will get their shop name in the Ad I will place this November in our Local Free Paper that goes out to THOUSANDS of households and stores
So leave me a message here or convo me on Etsy @ if you would like to participate.

The amount you donate back to the Fund is up to you but please do at least 10% if not more.
The fundraiser will start next week.

I will be advertising all participating shops on twitter, FB, kaboodle and where ever else I can!

Thank you all.

I'm touched at your generosity! We would love to have more help!
We do have a Paypal donate button on the blog. That was the very first thing we set up. :)
If there any info you need from me to help with the etsy benefit? If you have a list of participating vendors, I'll make sure to get all of thier websites ont he blog and Facebook page. We can blast an email out to our supporters as well.

Crazy Morning Crazy Fox

Wow what a crazy morning.
I opened the door to let Demon out and the noise I heard was not pretty.
He was on his leash thankfully and Honey had not made it out the door yet.
There was this loud screeching going on and then he picked something up and shook it and dropped it.
I thought maybe it was a possum then maybe a cat but on closer look it was a baby fox.
It was making all kinds of racket.
Demon didn't know what to do!
I was screaming for help since I had to hold Honey back and somehow get Demon in.
Pauly came to the rescue.
He helped to hold Honey and pull Demon in the door.
We got him in just in the nick of time because running up my sidewalk was Mama Fox and she was none to happy!
She grabbed her baby and ran down the sidewalk and dropped him and then came charging back at my front door where we were all watching her.
She would have torn poor Demon apart if he was outside.
Why she put her babes under the chair on my front porch while she moved them is beyond me. The porch light was on too...she must have thought they would be safe there but she must have smelled the dogs that live here.
Thankfully Demon only kills snakes and thinks all other animals are his pets to play with.
Honey would have killed it in a second if she had made it out the door.
Wish I had my camera to take a picture of Mama Fox with her baby in her mouth.
Not something you see close up every day.
So now that my poor foot with my broken toe has been trampled by Siberian Husky's I am going to be iceing it all day again today.
So much for getting down the steps to do some sewing!
I have a cute baby quilt in the making sitting down there calling my name
I can hear it calling me to sew lol.
Oh well there is always tomorrow.

I am working on a custom doll pattern and I am stuck on the head lol.
The body is great so far.
Have to figure out how to add the pony tails.
So I am thinking and drawing and thinking some more.
Guess I should just stop thinking about it for a while and then maybe it will come to me.


Everyone needs a little Betty in their life!
