I usually have to make at least 4 batches to have enough to go around.
    Okay these I have never heard of but they must be good! Can you share the recipe? Pretty please??

    YES, RECIPE WANTED - I'D LIKE TO TRY THEM AS BARS EASIER TO MAKE THAN ROLLED OR FORMED COOKIES.

    2/3 Cup Pet Milk
    1/2 Cup Margarine
    12 Regular size marshmallows
    Dash Salt
    10 Oz pack Cherry chips
    1 tsp Vanilla

    3/4 Cup peanut butter
    12 Oz pack semi-sweet chocolate chips
    8 1/2 Oz pack salted peanuts, chopped

    Over low heat melt the chocolate chips and peanub butter. Add chopped nuts.
    Spread half of mixture in a buttered 9x13 pan. Refrigerate to set.

    Combine the first 5 ingrededients over low heat. Bring to a boil, and boil
    for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and add cherry chips
    and vanilla. Stir until chips are melted. Pour over chocolate mixture.
    Refrigerate to set.

    Pour remaining half of chocolate mixture on top off cherry mixture.
    Refrigerate to set. cut into bars to serve.

    I have never heard of or seen cherry chips. Must be a regional thing? I am going to ask my local grocers to see if they can get it.

    we always did butter cookies and seafoam candy. Took them to the neighbors in decorated 3 lb coffee cans. That dates me, doesn't it

    I never cared for them, but my mom made stuffed dates every year at Christmas. Thanks for the memory.

    My mom used to make a black walnut cake. It was my brother's favorite - it was his birthday cake every year.

    I made some white chocolate chip with cranberries and they are one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. I just followed the recipe on the back of the chips but did not use nuts, I added the Craisens and they are just wonderful and very easy drop cookies.
