@RahlyRah: OMG some of those look delicious. 

I have a cookie called the “Worth Every Calorie bar” it’s a layer of oatmeal, brown sugar and butter with a rich thick brownie (fudge box recipes okay) with homemade chocolate cream cheese icing on top. 

If i can find the recipe card, I’ll share.

We always had rice krispie treats in the form of a wreath. I remember being so happy when my mom let me use red-hots to decorate the wreath throughout and she’d always use icing to pipe on a bow.

It’s not sophisticated by any means but super cute and I now always get a great reaction from kids and adults — probably more by adults, ha!

(these aren’t mine as I’m much more retentive about the bows)

Ok here is Darling Husband Grandmas cookie that she has actual named it after him. 🙂 I always make them on his birthday, our anniversary and my family demands dozens of them in their goodies box at Christmas time. Super easy and so delicious!

1 box yellow cake mix

1 egg

1 stick of butter softened

8 oz cream cheese softened

1 tsp vanilla

Sugar sprinkles

I soften the cheese and butter by throwing them in a bowl and microwave for 20-30 seconds. Then mix all ingredients together by kneading or with a spoon. Using an electric mixer will make the batter not set. After fully mixed, chill for at least 30 minutes to set. Scoop into little balls and dip into sugar sprinkles. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes.

I’m mixing it up a bit this time and using chocolate cake mix and then putting Andes mints chips into them halfway through baking.

I make these every year now and everyone loves them…

 

Chocolate Praline Toffee Crisps

12 whole graham crackers
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter (not margerine)
1 tsp double strength vanilla
2 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/4 cup white chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 350. Arrange crackers side by side in a single layer in Large Bar Pan. Combine brown sugar, butter and vanilla in 3 qt saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally with silicone whisk. Boil sugar mixture 4 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in pecans. Immediately pour sugar mixture over crackers and spread evenly with Large Spreader. Bake 10-14 minutes or until sugar mixture is bubbly and pecans are lightly toasted. Remove pan from oven to cooling rack; cool completely.

Microwave semi-sweet chocolate morsels on HIGH 30-60 seconds or until smooth, stirring after each 20 second interval. Place chocolate in resealable plastic bag. Twist top of bag. Trim corner to allow chocolate to flow through; drizzle over crisps. Repeat with white chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

Cut into 24 squares; cut squares diagonally in half to form triangles. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

@MeiFrancis: I call the bottom cookie, Chocolate Crinkles.  They are great with some mint extract too!

@RahlyRah: OMG, those Hot Cocoa cookies look delicious!  I will have to try the recipe soon!

One of my favorite cookies during Christmas time are Russian Tea Cakes (also known as Mexican Wedding Cookies, snowballs).  Sorry I don’t have a link, but I’ve seen many recipes online!  My Future Mother-In-Law always makes Pizelles and these Italian Anise Iced cookies that I always crave this time of year (and can’t get enough of, hehe).
