Valentine’s Day is this week and just when I was at the grocers thinking about which cookies to make and mail to Mother for the holiday, I saw that Hershey’s has a new offering complete with “Buy-Me” hearts on a pink package. I couldn’t resist as my thoughts went quickly to a new Snick even … More 2 New! Mocha Snicks with Lava Cake Kisses & Chocolate Mini Teacakes
A lovely neighborhood merchant asked me several days ago what I would be doing for Thanksgiving. I just shrugged and said that I am alone. She told me that she invites some folks who do not have family and asked me if that included me. Nope, I have family, but my daughter lives in London … More New! Mini Cinnamon Chocolate Chili Snicks for Thanksgiving
My friend Sylvia said last week that she’d like one of my cookies that “melt in your mouth” rather than one of the fruit and chocolate chews. I had to think about it for a few days, not wanting to repeat something I’d recently made, i.e., the butter cookies and mini teacakes, but a look … More Vanilla Chocolate Mint Snicks
Just because I didn’t make 15 to 20 different kinds of cookies and candies for Christmas a few weeks ago in my usual 3-day/night binge bake, well, that doesn’t mean those left out won’t have their moment or that there will not be a derivative. With leftover Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Mint Truffle Kisses, it’s a … More Snicks with Kisses and Their Friends
The words “non-GMO” on the package weren’t part of my decision to buy these dates, nor any other word on the package except “medjool.” They were needed for a batch to share of my Date & Walnut Chews, today with a handful of dried cranberries added. I couple days ago my mother and I set … More 6-Cookie Meetup with Mother, incl a Dough-to-Go Dozen. Spring Flowers.
There was frozen peanut butter cookie dough needing to be used and some leftovers in the Rolo bag put out by Hershey’s. I left a thumbprint in each spoonful of dough, then put the Rolo in at 9 minutes so the milk chocolate covered caramel would melt in place, not leak as happened with the … More Oops. Peanut Butter Cookie & Rolo Fall Out of Line. I blame cookie.
Continuing my pattern of putting caramels of some flavor inside of snickerdoodles of some flavor, I set out to find out how Rolos would work, those Hershey candies, thinking perhaps their caramels stay inside their milk chocolate shells at 350 degrees. To make them obviously different to the eye than their cookie siblings, I offered … More Vanilla Snicks with Rolos & Sprinkles Which Don’t Stick
Recently I experimented with some chocolate shard cookies* made with Seattle’s Theo Chocolate bars and froze some of the dough for further experimentation. Last night I made doughs and completed preparations to bake some newbies this morning and deliver up some sweetness and love to my daughter in her office later today. Some people have … More j’s Crookies, Chip Snicks and Cinnamon Toast Snicks
Previous post concerned only my new Lemon Snicks with Honey Caramel Accents, top right corner of this photo. Directly below is the result of putting Regular Caramel into the Lemon Snick. In the middle, Lemon Snicks are accented with Raspberry Tidbits Baking Chips sent to me by my sweet cousin in Idaho. On the left, … More j’s Lemon Snicks varieties for Mother’s Day
This cookie came about during the Christmas baking season and there was a leftover bag full of the Hershey’s Dark Mint Truffle-filled Kisses. My lovely niece Alexa and grandniece Miley are moving to Kauai at the beginning of March, AND they missed out on this cookie when I sent the whole tin full of them … More Valentine Snicks with Kisses
