PostSubject: Need help with EASY cookie and candy recipes   Mon Dec 11, 2006 10:04 am

My sisters husband is serving our Country in Iraq, He lost 2 of his buddies last week, and I want to make something nice to send to him..... although I know it will be late. Sad My sister suggested that I send a care package along with homemade candy and cookies...... but I need ideas on some recipes that are easy and cheap. being on disability hurts the pocketbook, so I can't spend alot on it, but I would like to send enough that he can share with his buddies.

I made him a paint can already, I actually found red white and blue wall paper samples in the books I got from Sherwin Williams, and it turned out really cute, if I do say so myself!! LOL

Anyways, can you guys share some Cookie and Candy recipes with me, please??

I really really appreciate it!!!!! Rachel

Hey Luvy!

I don't know how well this will ship, but this is something I do every year around this time.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls (Like Reeses PB Cups)

You will need....
1 jar of PB
1 bag of powdered sugar
1 stick of butter, softened
Melting Chocolate

Mix 3 cup of PB, butter & approx 5-6 cups of sugar ... maybe more. You just need to keep blending sugar in until mix becomes dense and chalk like, but still forms a ball. Roll into ball and set on wax paper in fridge for about 30 min - 1 hr. While in fridge melt choc in sauce pan (you must babysit it or it might burn/stick). Using fork dip PB ball into melted choc and place back on wax paper to cool/set up. Will make lots, depending on the size of the ball you make. I ususally make them about a single bite size.

You can also get white choc & drizzle over the top for contrast and deco.

With any left over choc you may have, you can always make choc covered peanuts & pretzels.

It's a no bake recipe.

Peanut Butter Bars

1 1/4 cups peanut butter
2 sticks of butter, melted
2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs (very fine)
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar.

Mix all ingredients together, until everything is mixed in well.

Press firmly into a 9x13 pan. Melt 1 package of Milk chocolate, chocolate chips, and pour over the top. You can also use Hershey Bars. Refrigerate until chocolate is hardened.

They really do taste like a Peanut butter cup!

Missy, do this have to be kept in the refrigerator, and can they be kept wrapped, and on the counter??

Thanks!!
