Welcome to our yummy hop today! Cookies make everything better don't they? This time of the year we're making our favorites!! If you just happened onto my blog, please start at Lisa's,  http://honeybearzdesigns2011.blogspot.com/ so you don't miss out on anything! If you're hopping then you shoud have come here via Diana - http://daisylovecreations.blogspot.com/  Now here at my blog it's all about the Chocolate.. which I love but these are NOT my favorite cookies. They are my hubby's and every holiday, my oldest daughter has to make these for the family get together. That's her speciality! We all have those one dishes that everyone knows we're bringing and if someone brought it, it just wouldn't taste right! Mine is the Dressing! Anyway back to cookies, here's my layout, then we'll chat about it.
 
 
 
I cut the title from a Silhouette file. The little boy is from a Creative Kuts candy bar wrapper. I added our recipe for No Bake Cookies and photos of my daughter and her daughter ( who loves to help in the kitchen) and my hubby! He'll eat the whole batch if you turn your back. We usually try to make them when he isn't home and just leave him a few out to enjoy before the big dinner. Otherwise, these are his appetizers!  that little boy is already grabbing one for himself! And if he does see them, and they are set up yet, he'll get a spoon and rake them off the waxed paper. This recipe is so easy and never fails, but the secret is to let it boil for one minute!! Sets up great every time! They do have oats in them so I wonder if that makes them healthy? And now they say, Chocolate is good for you, so hey, a two for one in the snack/health area! That's my story and I'm sticking to it or it could be sticking to me if I changed my mind about these being my favorite. Happy Holidays and may they be the sweetest ones ever! Now on to Maria Matter ~ http://joyfulstamper.blogspot.com/ to see what's she got cookin' for us! Have fun!

  10. Oh YUM Janet! Tell your husband he has good taste! Those are some of my favorite cookies too! I got the recipe originally in elementary school (about 100 years ago!) when we were doing a lesson on healthy eating. If you overlook the sugar, actually the rest of the cookie is pretty good for you. At least it has more nutritional value than the average cookie. The oats have fiber, the peanut butter and coconut had protein, and the cocoa has anti-oxidents. So that's a good way to justify an extra cookie or two! Haha!

    Your layout btw, AWESOME!! Love the little boy trying to sneak the cookies!

    I had so much fun hopping with you!
