Delectable Cupcakes

I absolutely love cupcakes, who doesn’t? Its the perfect portion size when you have that cake craving. I decided to spice up my ordinary boxed cupcakes and add my own touch to them. I added white chocolate chips in the center of them. So when you take that bite into the center you get the extra flavor of the white chocolate added. I also made some up with butterscotch chips and coconut for those who don’t prefer white chocolate. These are perfect to make for a get together when you know that some people don’t like what everyone else likes. These are a way of making something everyone will love.

Enjoy!

Crown Royal Chocolate Cookies

Spice up the ordinary cookies with a bit of Whiskey. If you don’t have Crown Royal you can substitute it for a whiskey you prefer or have on hand.  When the cookies bake, the liquor will evaporate, but don’t worry,  you will still taste the great flavor of it.

When making these cookies, the dough will been moist and sticky, but don’t add more flour, it will make the cookies more like a cake consistency then what they should be. When forming the dough into balls use white sugar on your hands to help with the stickiness, rather then flour or powdered sugar.

No Bake Chocolate Cookies

I can remember when I was a little girl at my grandparents house, and my grandma would be in the kitchen making these cookies. To me they always looked a little funny from my child view. I would always try to sneak a taste before they were ever done and my grandpa would have to always tell me “No, no Bailey, they are not ready to eat yet!”  I just couldn’t wait, I wanted to eat one right then. As I got older my grandma taught me how to make these and now I’m sharing it with all of you.

These cookies are simple to make, with only one hard part ~ to let them cool completely before you can eat one. If you are going to serve them at a party or event I recommended making them the night before, that way they will be ready in time.

Kids will love helping with these cookies, just be careful because the mixture gets very hot.

Enjoy!

Triple Chocolate Cookies

A triple-dose of chocolate all in one bite… yes, please!

This was my first time making these cookies, and I whipped them up for my mom’s bunco night. It’s a pretty fun game that you play with dice. You can check out the idea here.

Everyone loved them, and the left overs I took to my boyfriends house and they were gone within a couple hours. 🙂 Anyone who loves chocolate will LOVE these!

Once the dough has all been mixed and its time to put them on the cookie sheet, it will seem really moist. Don’t fret because that’s how it’s supposed to be. Also, you don’t want to bake these cookies to a crisp. I guarantee that you’ll want them to be chewy, so take them out once you see the “skin” on the cookies crack.

Enjoy, and good luck!
