Sweetheart Cookie Bouquet


What a cute idea! Would have been great to make for Valentine’s Day, but you could use this idea for other special days. Thinking though, I might go buy some chocolate hearts while they are on clearance! Thanks to In the Kitchen for sharing this idea!

Sweetheart Cookie Bouquet

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury Create ‘n Bake refrigerated chocolate chip cookies or your favorite chocolate cookie recipe
24 craft sticks of various lengths
24 dark or milk chocolate heart candies, unwrapped
Decorative container
Plastic foam
Tissue paper

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Cut cookie dough into 24 slices; shape each into 1 1/2-inch ball. Place each cookie dough ball over one end of a craft stick; press gently to adhere dough to stick. On ungreased cookie sheets, place 2 inches apart, overlapping craft sticks as needed.
2. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Press 1 heart candy in center of each cookie. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 45 minutes. (Do not pick up cookie pops using sticks until completely cooled.)
3. To assemble each cookie bouquet, place plastic foam in decorative container. Arrange six cookies in container as desired. Tuck tissue paper in between sticks to fill out bouquet.

Valentine Goodies!

Two great, chocolate recipes!

5 Minute Fudge(adapted from Rachael Ray)
(from Cooking is Medicine)

1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate morsels
9 ounces (3/4 of a 12-ounce bag) butterscotch morsels
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
 8X8 cake pan, lightly greased with softened butter
Place a heavy pot on the stove and preheat it over low heat.
Add chips and milk and stir until chips are melted and milk combined. Stir in vanilla and remove fudge from heat.
Add nuts and stir in immediately. Spoon fudge into pan and make smooth.
The fudge will set up almost immediately. Chill covered in the refrigerator and slice fudge into SMALL squares when ready to serve, a little goes a long way.


 Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies with Chocolate Chips
(from Jumbo Empanadas)

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C ). Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan.

In a medium bowl, cream together peanut butter and butter. Gradually blend in the brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix until fluffy. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Add in chocolate chips.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in preheated oven, or until the top springs back when touched. Cool, and cut into 16 squares.
