Baking Time

I have been doing some baking and wanted to share some recipes.

This is a family favorite that my mom always makes every Christmas!

Cherry Mash Candy Bar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
12 large marshmallows
dash of salt
1 (6 ounce) package cherry chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups finely chopped peanuts
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Combine butter or margarine, sugar, evaporated milk, marshmallows, and salt in saucepan. Bring to a boil, and boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cherry chips and vanilla, stirring until well blended. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9-inch baking pan and chill for 2 hours. Melt chocolate chips and add the chopped peanuts and peanut butter. Stir until well blended. Spread evenly over the top of the first layer. Chill until firm, then cut into bite-size size squares.

Rocky Road Candy Bark

This is a recipe from June at Merrier Shopping. I have made these about 3 times this year already. Great for cookie exchanges and gift giving and they travel well.

See recipe here.

Cherry Date Nut Balls

These delicious cookies come from my Minnesota blogging friend, Michael.

Get the recipe here.

I will have more recipes to share later this weekend. Happy Baking!
