My baked goods arrived!!!

My wonderful foodie/Facie friends and I decided to do a baked goods exchange every month since we are all so into cooking now. It is so much fun! Anyway, mine arrived today from Lori and they are so yummy looking! She said she was making enough for our family and I know she had to have thought of the kids as well when she made these treats which is so sweet. šŸ™‚ They arrived at the door and Sheridan looked in the box and said, “Which friend sent you these?!” and I said, “Lori did,” and she said, “Well, Lori is my favorite friend of yours now!” LOL : ) So whoever gets my name in next month’s exchange has something to live up to according to my kids!
Goodies were:
Rice Krispie Treats
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 pkg. jet puffed mini marshmallows
1 pkg. (13 oz) of Rice Krispy Cereal
Microwave – butter in large microwavable bowl on HIGH for 45 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows. Toss to coat. Microwave 1 – 1 1/2 minutes or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 45 seconds.
Add cereal, mix well…(it may look like it is never going to stick together, but it will). Press firmly into a greased foil lined 13×9 inch pan.
Cool completely to firm and cut into squares.
Wrap leftovers tightly and store cool
Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
1 bag of chocolate chips
Pretzels, fruit or anything you want dipped in chocolate
Microwave one bag of chocolate chips in a small bowl on high for about 1 1/2 minutes stirring at the 45 second mark. Chocolate should be completely melted. Dip in pretzels one at a time. Drip off the excess chocolate and immediately sprinkle. Lay to dry on piece of wax paper.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1 cup of sugar, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat until combined scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees after the dough has been chilled. Combine 2 tbsp. of sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in sugar – cinnamon combination to coat. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until edges are golden, transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
I’ll update the ratings once we eat some of this awesome stuff!!!
