Recipes...

I had several people ask me for the recipes from Bake Night w/my girlfriends. You will find them below.

Katy's Cream Cheese Brownies
Lady Brownies:Yields 15 to 20
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
6 tbs cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Blend together sugar, oil, eggs, cocoa, and vanilla. Add flour; mix. Add nuts; spread into greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Cream Cheese Brownies: Use Lady Brownies recipe above.
Pour half the batter into a greased pan.
Layer with this cream cheese mixture, then top with remaining batter, swirling it with a knife.
Cream Cheese Mixture
8 tbs (1 stick) butter, softened
One 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tbs all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Cream together



Andrea's Peppermint Bark
Andrea doesn't really measure things, she just eyeballs it. :)

Chocolate (milk chocolate, semi-sweet or whatever your fave is)
White chocolate
Peppermint extract
Peppermints (crushed)

Melt dark chocolate and poor onto cookie sheet lined in parchment paper (you might want to stick it in the fridge, so it will get firm)
Melt white chocolate add a little peppermint extract and half of crushed peppermints
Once white chocolate is melted, poor over dark chocolate
Sprinkle rest of crushed peppermints over white chocolate as topping
Put back in the fridge until it's hard and then break into pieces and serve!




Jill's Buckeyes
2 sticks of margarine
1 box of powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter (off brand works best)

Soften margarine (room temp)
Add peanut butter to your margarine and mix well
Once you have mixed margarine & peanut butter, incorporate your powdered sugar.
You want this mixture to be smooth, so blend by hand very well. (do not use mixer)
Roll your peanut butter mixture into balls

Chocolate coating: (You will need a double-boiler for this)
1/2 cake paraffin
1 pkg of semi-sweet chocolate chips (off brand works the best)
Melt these two ingredients and then dip your peanut butter balls into the mixture.
I usually coat the entire thing but leaving a small eye is what gives them their name. :)

Place them on foil until dry
Enjoy with a large glass of cold milk!



Love to all,
Jill
