My hubby just made this tonight and said the batter was so delicious that it took all he had not to drink it in liquid form. So I'm going out on a limb and saying this dessert is as good as it looks. If you love strawberries mixed with cream cheese and whipped cream.... :)

Hey everyone I thought since I promised a friend that I would post this recipe I'd go ahead and do it now. I make these every year since 2004 and the kids insist that it needs to be done now no matter what.

Fudge Cookie Surprise:

One 12 ounce bag of semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
One 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
approximately 60 Hershey Hugs unwrapped
2 oz white chocolate bar


Heat oven to 350 degrees and in a medium saucepan, combine chocolate chips andf butter. Melt over low heat until smooth. Add condensed milk and mix well. Lightly spoon flour mixture into measuring cup and level off.

In a medium bowl, combine flour,chocolate mixture and vanilla. Mix well. Shape one tablespoon(Use measuring spoon)of dough around each Hug, covering completly. Place one inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at350 for 6 to 8 minutes. The cookies should be soft and appear shiny,but they become firm as they cool. Do not overbake. Remove from cookie sheet and cool.

While the cookies are cooling,melt the white-chocolate baking bars according to the directions given on the package. Drizzle over cookies. Store in an airtight container when completely cooled.

*Note*: You may substitute Hershey's Kisses,with or without almonds, or Hershey Hugs with almonds.

Yeild:approximately 4 dozen

These are yummy and if you eat them warm out of the oven they are a googy yummy mess. I'm not a white chocolate fan but love these. :)

It seems I'm in a recipe sharing mood lately. This is another of my sons favorite recipe's ever. It's different than toll house and not as sweet and that's why it's my sisters favorite because she sometimes doesn't feel like eating such a sweet cookie. These are a great cookie :)

Soft Amish Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C. Shortening

1 C. Sugar

2 lg Eggs

1/2 C. Milk

2 1/2 C.Flour

1 tsp Baking powder

3/4 tsp Baking Soda (place in milk)

1 12oz bag of chocolate chips


Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and milk w/soda. Mix together and add baking powder. Gradually add flour and stir well. Stir in chips. Place on greased cookie sheets about 1 t of dough. Bake at 400% until edge is slightly brown. It usually takes 8 minutes.

I guess I just feel like baking when the cool weather hits. I enjoy turning on the oven more... :) I also drag out my Cappuccino maker.

This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I leave out the peanuts and use chocolate chips instead of cranberries. My kids look forward to me making these.

Peanut Pumpkin Cupcakes

1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/3 cups sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 Tbs. peanut or vegetable oil
1/2 cup dried cranberries or semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped roasted peanuts


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray or use paper liners.

Stir together the flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt, then set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix the sugar, pumpkin, eggs and oil until thoroughly combined. Add the flour mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in the dried cranberries(or chocolate pieces) and half of the peanuts.

Spoon batter into cups. Sprinkle with remaining peanuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.

Yield 1 dozen.

We like them so much that sometimes I use the whole can of pumpkin and double the recipe.

I have posted this before but with and all the new friends I have made lately I thought I'd re-post this.

Modified very slightly from a recipe found on the kraft foods site.

1 pkg devil's food cake mix
1/2 c peanut butter
4 oz (1/2 pkg) cream cheese
1 egg

Mix everything together in a medium-size bowl with a fork; a mixer just makes a mess. for the record, these ingredients are a bitch to mix and it'll take a while, but it's so worth it. the final product is super crumbly. I usually throw two handfuls of chocolate chips in mine.

Grab a handful of crumbs and squish/roll them into a ball. place it onto an ungreased baking sheet. repeat many times. gently press with a fork, then press again so there's a criss-cross pattern on top (like a peanut butter cookie). sprinkle top with a little bit of sugar.

bake at 375 for about 7 minutes. makes about... 20 cookies, give or take a few.

In the meantime, enjoy! =)

ETA: the recipe posted on the site has been altered from the original recipe we've always used. they now say to add two eggs to make the 'batter' easier to stir, but we were afraid that would change the awesomeness of the end product too much.

Mmmmmmmm :)
