As some of you know, I have chosen to use my baking abilities to give to others this year. I was asked to do an opportunity with #FamilyMeals from Collective Bias, Hamilton Beach and Conagra Foods and I was so excited. We were asked to do a baking party and share the cookies with others. I knew my grandmother was getting ready to visit the Vets so I wanted to do this so she could share some baked goods. I also made some cookies to share with neighbors and our church community.
When I planned this party, I wanted to do cookies that others would love but cookies that were easy to bake! At our party we made Peanut Butter Kisses cookies, Gingerbread Trees and Sugar Cookies. I also made Peanut Butter fudge, look for my recipes below!
Blend in the blender for about 30 seconds and you are done! I love the Wave Crusher blender by Hamilton Beach! It blended the drink easily with no leftover ice chunks and poured it out smoothly! If you are in the market for a new blender, it’s available at Walmart for under $30!
That’s my mom starting the cookies!
First up is the Peanut Butter Kisses Cookies!
*See recipe below
I loved working with Peter Pan peanut butter because it’s so smooth and soft.
Peanut Butter Kisses
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in egg, oil and then stir in vanilla. Gradually blend in the sifted ingredients. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake at for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool slightly, and remove from pan then insert unwrapped kisses into the middle of the cookies.
- 12 ounces of white chocolate candy bark melted
- 20-22 ounces milk chocolate chips (2 bags), melted
- 1 1/2 cups Peter Pan peanut butter
- Spray 8X8 pan with Pam, set aside.
- In Microwave, melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for about 1 minute, 30 seconds.
- In Microwave, melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for about a minute.
- Stir together milk chocolate and peanut butter until well blended. I like to use my Hamilton Beach Hand Blender to speed up the process!
- Pour melted milk chocolate in pan.
- Take the white chocolate and pour over the chocolate. Stir slightly with a spoon or knife to create a swirl/marble effect.
- Chill until firm. Cut into 1 /2 x 1″ pieces.
