Marshmallow Snowballs

This is a quick and easy treat that many Newfoundlanders will recognize. These are so easy to make, and perfect for making with kids.

MARSHMALLOW SNOWBALLS

What you will need:

4 oz cream cheese

2 cups icing sugar

2 tbsp milk

1/2 tsp vanilla

2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, melted

3 cups colored mini marshmallows

3 cups coconut

 

Combine first five ingredients, beat together until smooth.

Fold in marshmallows, then shape into balls.

Roll in coconut, and enjoy.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Or should that be Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies? With a load of chocolate chips like this, I’m not sure you’ll even know there’s oatmeal in there. And, trust me, if you don’t mention the oatmeal, most people will never know it’s there, either. This is one of those recipes that I don’t make in front of my manly man. Poor guy has no idea at all how much good-for-you food he actually eats!

OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

What you will need:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg 1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In small bowl combine sifted flour,baking soda and salt. Set aside. (I almost always use kosher or sea salt in this recipe, although it is just as yummy with regular table salt. I just find the kosher really helps to make the chocolate richer. But that may be just me!)
Cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add egg, water, and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Add oats, chocolate chips and nuts and mix with spoon.

With teaspoon, drop on to greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
