A Healthier Easter Treat!

This cute little candy bird nest is made from 'Fiber One'  original bran cereal and melted chocolate. These are so easy to make! My kids loved them! This recipe makes about 8-10 nests that are about 3" x 2" diameter each.

Ritz Thin Mint Cookies

Ritz Thin Mint Cookies

If you love 'Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies' you will love this recipe because it tastes VERY similar! Girl Scouts only sell cookies once per year, so I had to come up with a way to have these all year round.

4 Ingredient Snickers Cookies

4 Ingredient Snickers Cookies

One of my favorite candy bars is Snickers! I just can't resist chocolate covered peanuts with caramel! I also love to make easy candy recipes at home! Sometimes I get a craving for a candy bar but I don't feel like going to the store to buy one. And why buy candy bars when I have all the ingredients to make a copycat version?

Sweet Taco Snack

Sweet Taco Snack

I came up with this recipe because I wanted to use up some leftover flour tortillas...and I
was looking for something sweet to eat!  

This was perfect because it was fast and easy! I love the way all the ingredients melted together and was tucked inside the tortilla. But if your lucky like I was, the melted peanut butter will ooze out of the taco and drip down your hand! A taco just isn't a great taco if it's not messy!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Asian Meatball SoupThis is the year of the Snake! In honor of this holiday I decided to share with you this delicious recipe that I tried last night. Snake is not one of the ingredients! That's not something I think I would ever eat! I said 'think' it is possible I would eat snake, if it was prepared in a totally delicious way! Instead, I'll show you this Asian Meatball Soup Recipe posted on a blog called 'Noshing with the Noland's'.

Chinese New Year Chocolate Candy!

I'm not sure why this recipe is called 'Chinese New Year Chocolate Candy'....maybe because it's made with chow mein noodles? This is a delicious chocolate candy, no matter what you call it! It's crunchy, salty and sweet. Everything I love, all wrapped up in one bite! And you can change it to suit your own taste. I added grated coconut on top to make it more festive for Christmas. This recipe is extremely easy to make and only uses 4 ingredients.

Chinese New Year Candy

1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup crushed chow mein noodles
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or peanuts
1/4 cup coconut flakes or grated coconut

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Melt chocolate according to package directions. I use the microwave method.
In a large bowl, combine the melted chocolate with the crushed chow mein noodles and the nuts.
Mix until well coated.
Drop by the tablespoonful onto the lined cookie sheet.

You should get 15 pieces of candy from this recipe.
Dust the tops with the coconut flakes.
Allow the candy to firm up before placing on a serving platter.
