Along the same lines;

Oreo Bon Bons

1- pkg Oreo cookies-crushed
1- 8oz. pkg softened cream cheese
1- pkg white almond bark
1- pkg chocolate almond bark

Using a blender, food processor or hand mixer, mix cookies & cream cheese together. Roll into walnut sized balls. Chill in freezer for 15 minutes.

Melt approximately 3/4 pkg. white bark. Stick toothpick in an Oreo ball & dip into melted bark. Allow to harden on wax paper about 15-20 minutes.

While waiting melt about 1/4 pkg chocolate bark. When Oreo balls are not longer sticky to touch, decorate with drizzles of chocolate. You can also reverse this, & dip balls in chocolate & drizzle white chocolate.

Makes 25.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Okay - you asked for it. I bake LOTS of cookies...

Triple Chocolate Snowquakes

1/2 cups white flour
3/4 cup good quaity unsweetened cocoa powder (none of that hershey's crap!)
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter , room temperature
3/4 cup dark brown sugar , firmly packed
1/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate (chips or block, broken in pieces-or use semi sweet chocolate chips)
1 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions:

1 Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
2 Cream the butter until it's smooth in a large bowl with an electric mixer, on medium speed(sometimes I'm just too
lazy to get out my mixer and do this by hand).
3 Add the brown and white sugars and beat until well mixed. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well . Reduce speed to
medium low, add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, and mix until a soft dough forms(again, I usually do this by
hand).
4 Add chocolates and mix well. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill for about 1 hour or overnight
>>>>>> warning -the dough tastes TOO good
5 Preheat oven to 350* F.
6 Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside(Sometimes I just spray generously with cooking spray when I don't have parchment paper).
7 Place the confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Keeping dough well chilled, form 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball. Roll the ball in the confectioners' sugar to coat generously (don't shake off excess sugar).
8 Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes or until they have puffed up and cracked and are slightly firm to the touch.
9 Move the cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Enjoy!

Rolled Sugar Cookies

We make these every year as it is a group thing to spend all night decorating them. Last year we had some moustache cookie cutters which were fun..... one year we all made versions of Jerry...

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Directions

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. (I use parchment paper)
Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
