Dessert Recipes

So life has been busy.
Like so busy that this is our only "free" weekend from Thanksgiving til the end of December.
I know I promised dessert recipes from Thanksgiving, so before we get anymore into Christmas season, I'm going to share with them with you.

Puppy Chow:

  • 9 cups of rice chex
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 cups of powdered sugar
Melt the butter, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and vanilla in a large pan, stirring constantly until all ingredients have melted.  Remove from the stove.  Add cereal and stir well until coated.

Place cereal mixture in a large brown paper bag.  Add the powdered sugar and shake the bag until the cereal is completely covered with it.  {You may have to add more powdered sugar if needed.}

Spread the cereal out on wax paper to cool.  Once cooled, place in an air tight container.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350*.

In a large bowl, mix brown sugar and butter until blended.  Beat in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy.  Mix in oats, flour, and baking soda; stir in chocolate chips.

Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.  Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool slightly and remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack. Once cooled, store in an air tight container.


These are just the desserts that I made for my family to eat as they were waiting around.  Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my dad's favorite, and my brothers seemed to enjoy them as well.  They're super easy to make, and really yummy!! :)

Happy baking!
