Chocolate Butterfinger Sugar Cookies

I was inspired to make chocolate sugar cookies after finding chocolate sugar cookie spiders on the web. I really just wanted to make the chocolate cookie. I noticed that it was already similar to the sugar cookie I already make, then I decided to add Butterfinger candy bars. Yum it is a hit!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1-2 cups chopped Butterfinger - I had chopped 3 candy bars.

Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients then add the Butterfinger. Form 1 inch ball, roll ball in sugar, place on  baking sheet and flatten using bottom of a glass. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes.

No Bake Cereal Peanut Butter Bars

I made up some tasty treats today. First I made some Rice Krispie Treats.

Then I found a No Bake Peanut Butter Cornflake bar recipe and made those too. I had some Rice Krispies left and mixed that in along with some chopped peanuts.  Yum!

Vanilla Quick Bread

I subscribe to Food Network Magazine, and the 50 recipe insert in the current issue is Quick Breads. So I found the vanilla quick bread and wanted to try my bread machine. This might not of been the best idea.  I did not give the butter a chance to get to room temperature and it did get mixed in well. However is is really tasty, it reminds me of pound cake

Next time time I will make it as directed and try the cinnamon roll recipe.
