St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos

St. Patrick's Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos

I have never been a huge fan of St. Patrick’s Day.  Most years I don’t even bother to wear green (Pinch me!)  In fact my poor children were deprived because we never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day when they were growing up.  Now that I am doing more family history work I have discovered that I do have a little bit of Irish blood in me. So I have decided this year I better wear green and pay a little homage to my Irish ancestors.  I have many years of [Continue Reading...]

We are huge popcorn fans at our house.  I grew up on popcorn.  A big bowl of popcorn and a bag of M & M’s every Sunday night as we watched Wonderful World of Disney.  Am I dating myself? We love all forms of popcorn but one of our favorites is this easy Microwave Caramel Corn.  It is a recipe a friend gave to me over 20 years and we have never found a caramel corn recipe we like better.  It is often requested by my children in a care [Continue Reading...]

  Yesterday we had our annual candy/cookie making day with my girls, my mom and a few friends and neighbors.  This year it was more of a candy making day than a cookie making day. I love making candy and actually prefer it to cookies.  Candy stores better than cookies.  We made caramels, peppermint white chocolate fudge, rocky road fudge, boston creams, cinnamon white chocolate pretzels, chocolate crinkles, jam diagonals and today’s recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Toffee. A lot of people are afraid to make candy but really, as [Continue Reading...]

All I can say is blame it on the M & M’s.  Yes, the new white chocolate peppermint M & M’s are to blame for my current obsession with that flavor combination. Actually I think the flavor obsession started last Christmas.  Last December I attended my annual Beach Babe Christmas Tea.  One of my friend brought these amazing white chocolate peppermint meringues and lets just say I ate more than my fair share.  I loved them so much I went home and made them myself the next day.  I couldn’t [Continue Reading...]

 A few weeks ago my husband turned to me one day when we were in the car and told me he was in love! I of course expected him to follow up with “with you.” But instead he told me he was in love with the new white chocolate peppermint M & M’s. I had to admit that I was in love with them too. I had been secretly hiding a bag in myoffice drawer!! I couldn’t wait to bake with them and thought blondies would be the perfect thing.  [Continue Reading...]
