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
Munchies were featured in a recent episode of Martha and Snoop’s cooking show and Martha made a kitchen-sink cookie that included potato chips. It was a hit, providing sweet, salt, chocolate, nuts and I don’t remember the rest. It was the addition of potato chips — known as crisps in some parts of the world … More Jalapeno Potato Chip Chocolate Chew?
I was making up the grocery list for Old Ladies day at Fred Meyer’s and noticed that today is National Cookie Day. The list already included Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Mint Truffle kisses for the seasonal batch of Minty Chocolate Snicks, so a decision was made to proceed with making the dough-to-go balls and pop them … More National Cookie Day: why not some preps for Christmas koekje baking?
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
We’re having a Winter Social on Sunday afternoon in the neighborhood, an annual event for many and a first for me on my one year anniversary of the move to Seattle. I attended the Seattle Night Out* block party last August, took along three items and met some neighbors new to me. The upcoming Social … More Vanilla Snicks with Lavender Caramel Accents
