Holiday Cookies

Every year my family gets together before Christmas to exchange cookies and ornaments. Some people come with their same favorite cookies each year and others mix it up. I try to be creative each year and considering that I am a better cook than I am a baker, I have had my share of cookie flops. Each year I try to come up with something different, fun, and delicious. This year, I tried to search for cookie recipes that looked delicious but that might be easy enough for my baking skill level. The party is on Sunday so I have a week to decide but let me know if any of these sound especially delicious to you that you think I should try this year. Or if you have another awesome cookie recipe, send it my way!
As far as the ornament exchange goes, that is a whole other story. I seem to flop in the department as well but it’s the thought that counts right!?

  1. Those cookies look amazing! All of them!
    One of my favorites, that is ridiculously easy and you don’t even have to bake!
    Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars
    1 Cup Chunky Peanut Butter
    1 12oz bag semi sweet Choc Chips
    4 Cups mini marshmallows

    Melt the chococate chips and PB together, let them cool slightly and then add the marshmallows. you do not want the marshmallows to melt. Stir it all up and spread in a greased 9 x 13 pan and refridgerate!
    So yummy!

  2. Here’s another one that is really yummy too.
    Coconut Joys

    1/2 Cup butter
    2 cups powdered sugar
    7 oz package of coconut (finely shredded/flaked)
    2 oz unsweetened chocolate (melted)

    1. melt butter in a saucepan and remove from heat.
    2. add sugar and mix well.
    3. Stir in coconut
    4. Shape into 1/2 inch to 1 inch balls.
    5. indent the center of the ball and fill with the chocolate.
    6. chill overnight and keep refridgerated.
