My sister and her boyfriend made a delicious meal for us one night so I decided to chip in and help with dessert. I had a random craving for rice krispies treats and was surprised at how quick and easy they are to make!  It was so simple I’ll leave you with the recipe!


  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz) regular marshmallows OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal


1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray.


Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. While warm, spread chocolate chips for an extra treat. Best if served the same day.


So, I had incomplete amounts of chocolate chips for a recipe I wanted to make and could not find a recipe for that amount. Then I realized I also had the same awkward amount of white chocolate chips in my pantry. I found this recipe and incorporated both kinds of chocolate chips to make a perfectly harmonious cookie! Enjoy!


  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, cream the shortening, white sugar, and brown sugar together with a wooden spoon. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.


Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture.


Finally stir in the semi sweet chips and the white chips, if the batter is too stiff, you may need to use your hands. IMG_4997

Drop cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto unprepared cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven.


Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before removing to cool on wire racks.

This recipe is my mom’s go-to recipe when she wants to bring a little treat to share! It’s very simple and surprisingly delicious! This time we did them spring-themed but you can do any combination. Enjoy!


  • Square pretzels
  • Hersey’s Hugs (Kisses don’t work well for some reason)
  • M&M’s (color of choice)


Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Arrange all pretzels on a cookie sheet.


Then, place Hugs in the center above the pretzels.


Place cookie sheet in the oven for 4-5 minutes. As soon as the time is up, pull out cookie sheet and place M&M’s into the center of the Hugs. Remove from cookie sheet and place on wax paper for easy removal later on, since the cookie sheet will still be hot and melting the chocolate.
