Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies, topped with a creamy orange frosting, are a soft, delicious, and wonderfully decadent treat you will enjoy!

About 15 years ago, I received this recipe for orange chocolate chip cookies from a friend. She knew that I hosted a cookie exchange at Christmas time every year, and wanted to share this one with me to try. She wrote “I think you should bake these in the near future to see if they are something you would want for your exchange. I have a sister-in-law that thinks Christmas isn’t the same unless she has some of these.”   Well, I don’t know where my friend got her original recipe for these cookies, but it’s a KEEPER!

I have to tell you, these easy-to-make cookies taste WONDERFUL, and I am so glad my friend Annette sent me her recipe. Pillowy soft, filled with chocolate chips, flavored with orange juice and zest, and topped with a creamy orange icing, these cookies are absolutely delicious! Today I want to share the simple recipe with you. Here’s how to make them:

Scroll down for a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Make The Cookie Dough

Before beginning, remember to preheat your oven to 350°F. The dough for the cookies is really easy to make, and it comes together quickly, so make sure the oven is preheated, so it’s ready to go once the cookie dough is done.

In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream shortening, granulated sugar and cream cheese together until well combined. Note:* I almost always use butter for my baking, but this recipe calls for vegetable shortening, so as not to “mess it up”, that is what I use).

Add two eggs, fresh orange juice, and orange zest to the batter. Continue to beat the ingredients together until the batter is fluffy, and fully combined.

Cream cheese, shortening, sugar, eggs, OJ, and zest are mixed for cookie batter.The wet ingredients for the cookie batter are mixed thoroughly.

Now add the flour, salt, and chocolate chips. STIR these ingredients into the batter. That’s it! This is the batter for your orange chocolate chip cookies! Now let’s bake them.

Flour, salt and chocolate chips are stirred into the cookie batter until combined.

Bake The Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Scoop or drop the batter by spoonfuls onto very lightly sprayed or greased cookie sheets, keeping about 2 inches between cookies. I usually get between 24-26 cookies out of the dough.

Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, or only until the cookies are just barely golden brown around the bottom edges. You do NOT want the cookies to brown like a traditional chocolate chip cookie!

The dough for orange chocolate chip cookies are spooned onto baking sheets.

Once they’re done (see how they are barely brown around the edges?), remove the baking sheets from the oven, and let the cookies cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

The cookies are done when barely golden brown around the bottom edges.

Make The Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

While the orange chocolate chip cookies cool, you can make the orange cream cheese frosting. The frosting makes these delicious cookies perfect, so don’t leave this out!

In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together cream cheese, fresh orange juice, and orange zest (zest is the finely grated peel of the orange, and has lots of citrus flavor in it). Once they are creamed together, add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until fully incorporated. You will end up with a fairly thick frosting for the cookies.

Cream cheese, powdered sugar, OJ & orange zest are combined to make frosting.

Frost The Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Once the cookies have COMPLETELY cooled, spread each one with the yummy orange frosting. There is enough frosting to generously cover the entire top of each cookie (I had 26 cookies). Let the cookies rest, which will firm up the frosting, before serving.

In the second photo below, you can see that the bottoms of the cookies are barely browned. That is what they should look like.

Each of the orange chocolate chip cookies are topped with the citrus frosting.The bottoms of the cookies are only barely browned while baking.

Once the frosting has firmed up, the cookies are ready to enjoy! I’m confident you will like these soft, orange chocolate chip cookies. They are sooo good! The orange flavor, combined with chocolate chips is a favorite combination of mine, and I hope you like it, too.

Even though the cookies were so good that I could have eaten them ALL, I enjoyed taking small plates of these delicious cookies to several neighbors, so they could enjoy them, too!

I truly hope you have the opportunity to make these yummy cookies for yourself or for those you love. The recipe is so simple to prepare, and the results are wonderful! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

Fresh Peach Cobbler

Classic Fresh Peach Cobbler, (enhanced with cinnamon and vanilla) is a simple, delicious Summer dessert, served with vanilla ice cream!
Classic Fresh Peach Cobbler, (enhanced with cinnamon and vanilla) is a simple, delicious Summer dessert, served with vanilla ice cream!

Who likes peach cobbler? We REALLY do! Every summer when big, juicy peaches are abundant, fresh, and ripe, I make at least one fresh peach cobbler! I love to go to U-pick farms and pick lots of fresh peaches, which I can then use to make cobblers, jam, canning pie filling, pies, muffins, or ice cream.

Last weekend, my husband and I got out of town and enjoyed a scenic drive through Oregon’s famous Columbia Gorge (Multnomah Falls, Columbia River, etc.). One of our stops was a wonderful farm stand (off the beaten path), about 1½ hours from our home. We bought a flat of fresh picked large peaches, and some other goodies.

Once we got home, it was time to enjoy them! We ate several right out of the box (with juice dripping!), some will be canned to enjoy later, and others were used to make this delicious, fresh peach cobbler!

Fresh peaches are used to make this delicious fruit cobbler.

This cobbler tastes amazing, and I know you will enjoy it, too! I do not recommend using canned peaches… go for FRESH and RIPE, and you will not be disappointed! Did I mention how easy it is to make this dessert? Yep. Probably the “hardest” thing you will need to do is peel and slice the peaches. Here’s how to make Fresh Peach Cobbler:

Make The Batter

Preheat the oven to 375°F. While it is preheating, make the batter for the cobbler. It’s a cinch! Sift flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Pour in milk, and stir (or whisk) the ingredients together only until they’re fully combined (there might be a few small lumps… no worries!) This is the batter for your peach cobbler.

Milk is added to the sifted dry ingredients for the cobbler batter.Cobbler batter is stirred just until all ingredients are incorporated.

Add melted butter to a 9×13 baking dish (can also use a 7×12 pan). Pour the batter right on top of the melted butter, BUT DO NOT STIR IT IN. Set the baking dish aside while you prepare the fruit filling.

The batter is poured on top of melted butter in baking pan.The cobbler batter is NOT stirred once added to the baking dish.

Make The Fresh Peach Cobbler Filling

Now it’s time to make the yummy peach filling. Place the peeled, sliced peaches, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon and sugar into a large saucepan. Give it a good stir, to combine ingredients, and then bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir the fruit filling constantly while it comes to a boil. Once it begins boiling, remove the pan from the heat.

Peaches, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and lemon juice are measured into saucepan.Peach cobbler filling is brought to a boil, then removed from heat.

Spoon or pour the peach filling evenly on top of the batter in the baking dish, BUT DO NOT STIR THEM IN! The peach filling will be sitting on top of the batter (which is sitting on top of the melted butter). That’s how it should be! Butter first, batter second, and fruit last! As the fresh peach cobbler bakes, the batter will rise up (magically) and cover all those yummy peaches! Now your cobbler is ready to bake.

The cobbler filling is poured or spooned over the batter in baking dish.The fruit filling is NOT stirred once it goes into the baking dish.

Bake The Fresh Peach Cobbler

Bake the fresh peach cobbler in a 375°F. oven for between 40-45 minutes. When done, the top of the cobbler will be nice and golden brown on top, and the filling should be bubbly around the edges of the baking dish. The smell is wonderful as the dessert bakes, by the way.

When done, carefully remove the hot cobbler from the oven. Transfer the dish to a wire rack to cool down slightly. It will be easier to serve, while it is still warm (but not totally hot). You can even bake the cobbler ahead of time, if desired, and then just reheat each portion, if that is more convenient.

Ready To Eat!

When you’re ready to serve the warm fresh peach cobbler, grab a large serving spoon and dish it up into individual bowls or onto plates. By all means add some ice cream to top it off, if possible. Enjoying peach cobbler with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream is a timeless, old-fashioned combination!

The incredible flavors of the cinnamon-vanilla flavored peach filling, along with the golden soft topping will make it hard to resist a second helping. This cobbler even tastes wonderful at room temperature!

Blackberry Crisp

Blackberry Crisp is an easy, old-fashioned dessert you’ll love! Fresh blackberries, topped with a crumb streusel, baked and served a la mode.
Blackberry Crisp is an easy, old-fashioned dessert you'll love! Fresh blackberries, topped with a crumb streusel, baked and served a la mode.

We have blackberry vines growing over our back fence from a forest park behind our home. The vines grow like ravenous beasts in the Spring and early Summer here in Oregon, and it is all I can do to NOT hack at them with the clippers to tame them. HOWEVER… if I’m “nice” and let them grow unhindered, even though they’re a nuisance, we harvest several quarts of fresh wild blackberries each summer.

I pick as many berries as I can (and I have red stains on my fingers and battle scars from the thorns to prove it). Then we take the trimmers to the vines, and cut the vines as far back over the other side of the fence as possible. We keep them clipped back until the following year, and then we battle them and pick blackberries all over again! It’s a LOVE-HATE relationship!

We love to make cobblers, bars, jam, muffins, scones and pies using our “FREE” blackberries each year. This recipe I am sharing today is a super easy way to incorporate fresh blackberries into an easy to make, classic dessert.

SCROLL DOWN FOR A PRINTABLE RECIPE CARD AT BOTTOM OF PAGE

How To Make Blackberry Crisp

Lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish OR 9″ square pan with non-stick baking spray. Add the fresh blackberries to the baking dish, and very gently toss with flour and granulated sugar. This mixture will help absorb some of the juices as the berries bake, and will just slightly sweeten the blackberries.

Prepare The Crumb Topping

In a large bowl, combine packed brown sugar, old-fashioned oats, flour, and cinnamon. Gently mix these ingredients with a fork or whisk until combined.

Cut in COLD butter with a pastry blender or two forks until the topping mixture is crumbly and the butter is cut to “about” the size of peas. This is the crumb topping for your blackberry crisp!

Oats, flour, cinnamon and brown sugar are combined in bowl. Cold butter is cut into the streusel ingredients until crumbly.

Time To Bake The Blackberry Crisp

Evenly distribute the crumb topping over the blackberries, using all the topping to cover the berries completely. Place the berry crisp into a preheated 375°F oven on the middle rack.

TIP: I usually place a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack UNDER the baking dish, just in case the blackberry juice bubbles up and out of the dish. It is rare when that happens, but if it does, it sure makes cleanup much easier!

Bake the blackberry crisp for 40 minutes. Once done, it should be bubbly around the edges, and the topping should be nicely browned. You can see (in the 2nd photo below), how the crisp reduces in volume (from the top of the baking dish to much lower than the rim).

Ready To Eat!

When the blackberry crisp is done cooking, transfer it from the oven to a wire rack, to cool down about 10 minutes or so before serving. This also helps the juices to stabilize a bit before you scoop out the portions.

Serve the cobbler warm, with a nice, big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream. I whipped up a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream to have with this delicious dessert! A little scoop of ice cream is the absolute perfect way to top off and enjoy this dessert.

I hope you enjoy this yummy dessert like we do. For me it’s wonderful to be able to enjoy the fresh summer blackberries from our very own backyard. Such a nice treat… I almost don’t mind the thorns sticking me as I grab more and more off the vines!

Have a great day, and thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I hope you have the opportunity to come back soon. Take care.

Creamy Lime Mousse

Looking for a light, delicious, flavor-filled EASY dessert? Try this cold, creamy lime mousse, which is made in 5 minutes using only 4 ingredients!

Summer is heating up, so it’s the perfect time to make desserts that cool us off, when temperatures are in the 90’s. This creamy lime mousse fits the bill quite nicely. It is cold, creamy, loaded with lime flavor, and is super easy to make! I wrote down the recipe on an index card in an old recipe box many years ago, and don’t remember where it came from originally. But… it’s a KEEPER, so I wanted to share it.

Come to think of it, this dessert would be perfect ANY TIME of year, especially if you need to whip something up quickly with hardly any effort. Slightly tart and slightly sweet… it’s so good. Here’s how easy it is to make this delightful mousse (printable recipe card at the bottom of this post).

How To Make Creamy Lime Mousse

Combine heavy whipping cream, granulated sugar, lime juice and zest, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. Mix gently for just a moment to combine ingredients.

NOTE: I use a microplane to finely grate the peel of the lime. If you do not own a microplane, simply use the smallest holes on a box or hand grater to finely grate the lime peel. It’s important to zest only the green part of the lime peel, and not the white part, as it can add bitterness to this dish.

Whipping cream, sugar, vanilla, lime juice & zest in a mixing bowl.

OPTIONAL BUT NICE: If you want you can add one drop of green food coloring (optional) to the creamy lime mousse if you want a very light shade of green. You do NOT need it for this dessert to be perfect, but sometimes I like it to have a slight green hue (for presentation).

A drop of green food coloring is added to the mousse ingredients.

How Long to Beat The Mousse

Beat the mixture on high speed using an electric mixer. You will need to beat it until SOFT PEAKS form. This usually will take about 4 minutes.

You can test for the soft peaks by stopping the beaters, and using the bottom of the beater, pull up on the mousse to see if a soft peak will hold its shape. Once the creamy lime mousse forms soft peaks, it is done!

The creamy lime mousse is beaten for about 4 minutes, until soft peaks form.

Transfer the creamy lime mousse to four small dessert dishes, dividing it evenly. At this point it is okay to go ahead and eat the mousse, BUT… it’s even BETTER if you chill it for an hour or more. This mousse tastes best when served very cold.

It’s super easy (and convenient) to whip up this dessert in the morning, and then cover each dish and let them chill all day. Then when you’re ready for them, they are cold and ready to enjoy!

The mousse is transferred to 4 small dessert dishes, and then refrigerated.

Time To Serve Creamy Lime Mousse

When I serve this dessert, I think it looks wonderful to top each mousse cup with a spray or dollop of whipped cream. I also add a sprinkle of lime zest, and a fresh lime slice to each dish for presentation. It helps to “doll up” this simple, but yummy dessert. We eat with our eyes first, right? And that’s it… grab a spoon and dig in! Hope you enjoy this wonderful treat.

Creamy lime mousse is garnished with lime zest, whipping cream, and a slice of lime.A spoonful of the creamy lime mousse is ready to eat!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have the opportunity to try this simple, but delicious dessert. It will keep well for 2-3 days, if covered well and refrigerated (without garnishes).

Air Fryer Brownies

Hungry for dessert? Why not whip up a fast batch of air fryer brownies? This simple recipe makes 8 small, yummy brownie wedges using an air fryer!

I don’t know about you, but BROWNIES are always a big hit in our home. My own recipe for brownies is our all-time favorite! Hands down the absolute BEST way to make traditional made from scratch baked brownies, in my humble opinion!

Recently, I came across a recipe online for air fryer brownies that I really wanted to try. It’s been fun experimenting with recipes using our Cosori air fryer, a cool appliance that cooks or “fries” food with highly super heated air. These brownies are easily created from scratch, and so I decided to make them as a surprise for my hubby.

My husband Ken loves his brownies without frosting, so I decided to make him his very own batch of unfrosted air fryer brownies! The recipe makes 8 small wedge servings, and tasted great, so he was in heaven while they lasted!

Prepare The Pan

The air fryer brownies are cooked in a 7″ baking pan. I ordered a Cosori Set of 6 air fryer accessories on Amazon last year, that is compatible with many types and sizes of air fryers. The baking pan I use came from this set. **NO, I am not an affiliate, just telling you where I got the pan!

Generously coat the bottom and half way up the sides of a 7″ baking pan with butter. You want the pan well-buttered, so the brownies will easily release from the pan once done. Once the pan is buttered, set it aside and preheat your air fryer to 330°F.  

A 7" round pan is coated with butter before adding brownie batter.

Make The Batter

Making the batter is super easy! If you can stir, you can make it! To save time, make the batter while the air fryer is preheating!

Measure flour, sugar, cocoa powder, melted butter, eggs, oil, vanilla, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Stir well, to combine. Once these ingredients are fully mixed, the batter is ready! EASY!

Ingredients for air fryer brownies are mixed together to make a batter.The brownie batter is very thick once mixed.

Cooking The Brownies

Evenly spread the brownie batter in the well-buttered baking pan. Try to make the top of the batter as smooth as you can.

Cook the brownies in a preheated 330°F air fryer for 15 minutes, or until done (see below).

The pan full of brownie batter is placed into an air fryer to cook.

How Do I Know If The Brownies Are DONE?

Since various brands of air fryers tend to vary widely in temperature rates, it is best to check the brownies before the end of the cooking time.  I start checking them to see if they’re done at the 13 minute mark, to make sure they don’t overcook.

Pause the machine, and insert a toothpick into the middle of the brownies. If the toothpick comes out mostly free of batter (clean), you will know the brownies are done. If not, pop them back into the air fryer for another minute, then check again. Better to check them often, then end up with dried out brownies, right? RIGHT!

A toothpick is inserted into middle of brownies to ensure they are done.

Remove The Brownies From The Pan

Once the brownies have cooled to room temperature, CAREFULLY remove them from the baking pan by inverting the pan onto a serving platter. If you buttered the pan really well, they should come out very easily! Flip the brownies over for serving.

The air fryer brownies are removed from the air fryer and baking pan.

Time To Serve The Air Fryer Brownies!

When the brownies have cooled to room temperature, sift powdered sugar lightly over the top surface. This is an optional step, but makes it look nice, especially if you will not be frosting them! I added a thinly sliced (but not cut all the way through) large strawberry for some color.

P.S. If you want to frost them, try my recipe for creamy brownie frosting!

Slice the air fryer brownies into 8 equal sized wedges. Serve with whipped cream and/or a little scoop of ice cream and chocolate syrup for an eye-pleasing, tasty treat!

Garnished with sifted powdered sugar and a strawberry, they're ready to slice.Air fryer brownies are cut in wedges and served with ice cream, etc.

I really hope you enjoy making these yummy brownies in your handy dandy air fryer! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Butterfinger Bars

Butterfinger Bars are incredible tasting, crisp, buttery oat bars, topped with a creamy milk chocolate/peanut butter icing. This easy recipe makes 24!
Butterfinger Bars are incredible tasting, crisp, buttery oat bars, topped with a creamy milk chocolate/peanut butter icing. This easy recipe makes 24!

Many years ago (about 15), a friend, who was a parent of a student at the school I worked at, gave me a homemade dessert bar. She called her crisp, chocolate treats Butterfinger Bars. Not sure why she gave them this name, but since I LOVE Butterfinger candy bars, I “forced” myself to try one.

Ha Ha… I could have eaten 18 of them, they were so good. I asked her for the recipe, and she graciously wrote it down for me. Now, mind you, this is NOT A COPYCAT RECIPE for the delicious candy bar. This is its own bar cookie recipe that I’m confident you will LOVE, and I am happy to share it with you today!

Okay… But What Is In This Bar Cookie?

Well, I’m glad you asked! The bar cookies are made with only FOUR common ingredients: old-fashioned oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar and butter. They are baked into a crisp bar cookie base, and then are frosted with a milk chocolate and peanut butter topping, once cool. Really, really simple!

The butterfinger bars have a crisp cookie base, and a creamy luscious topping of chocolate and peanut butter! These are seriously addicting bar cookies, especially if you enjoy chocolate and peanut butter. I think they’re even better the day AFTER you make them! Let me show you how EASY it is to make two dozen!

Make The Butterfinger Bars Base

Preheat your oven to 425°F. while you make the oat mixture base. It only takes a few minutes to make, so you will want your oven hot and ready to bake, once you’re done.

Mix oats (uncooked), brown and granulated sugars with melted butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir these ingredients together very well, until you have a crumbly, but butter-coated mixture.

Melted butter, oats, brown and granulated sugar in mixing bowl.The ingredients are fully combined before pressing mixture into baking pan.

Spray a 9×13 baking pan with non-stick spray, and pour the oat mixture into the dish. Spread the crumbs over the entire bottom of the pan. Use the back of a large spoon to firmly press the ingredients together in the pan.

When done, you should have a very firmly compacted oat mixture base in the pan (shown in the 2nd photo below, before baking). Now it is ready to bake! Bake the butterfinger bars at 425°F for 10-12 minutes. When done, they will be golden brown around the edges. Remove the pan to a wire rack to cool.

The bar cookie mixture is spread evenly into a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish.The mixture is packed down firmly into the pan before going into the oven.

Make The Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

While the butterfinger bars are cooling (after baking), make the chocolate peanut butter frosting! Fear not- it is SUPER EASY! Melt milk chocolate chips (or giant sized Hershey bar) in a double boiler, along with the peanut butter.

WHAT IS A DOUBLE BOILER? A double boiler has a bottom saucepan filled about 3/4 of the way with water, and then a slightly smaller pan (with chocolate and peanut butter in it) sitting in (on top of) the water. Bring the pan with water to a gentle boil, while stirring the chocolate and peanut butter. Be careful to not let any water get into the chocolate mixture.

The heat from the boiling water below will gently melt (without burning) the chocolate chips and the peanut butter in the upper pan. Continue to stir until you have a creamy frosting, and then remove from the heat. TIP: For this recipe, it is best to NOT use all natural peanut butter.

Milk chocolate chips and peanut butter for frosting are melted in a double boiler.

Time To Frost The Butterfinger Bars!

Okay… now you should have a creamy frosting and a tray of completely cooled butterfinger bars! Pour the frosting over the bars, and then spread it, to cover the entire surface.

Let the bars now cool completely, so the frosting can firm up, before attempting to cut or slice.

The chocolate peanut butter frosting is poured onto cooled bar cookies, and spread.Frosting is spread over the top of the butterfinger bars, and then rests to firm up.

See How CRISP The Butterfinger Bars Are?

Getting the butterfinger bars out of the pan can be a bit of a challenge due to their crispness. Run a butter knife around the edges of the pan, and then use a really sharp knife to cut the butterfinger bars in half. Lift an entire half of the bars from the pan.

They are so crisp they should hold together very well. Cut the half into three equal portions, and then cut each third into 4 pieces, using a very sharp knife to make the cuts. Repeat with the other half of the bars!

Half of the crisp butterfinger bars are cut and lifted out of pan.Each half of the pan of bar cookies is cut into 3 pieces, then cut into 4 pieces per slice..

Now It’s Time To EAT!

Once the bars are cut into portions, you should have 24 square butterfinger bars! They are now ready to serve, and eat!

The bars will be crisp, and the frosting creamy… and guess what? They also freeze well, so you can wrap up any leftovers really well, and save several for another time. They are sooo good!

Grabbing a bite of one of the butterfinger bars to munch on!

Hope you enjoy these yummy chocolate frosted butterfinger bars! We sure do! Have a great day, and thank you for visiting!

Butterfinger Bars are incredible tasting, crisp, buttery oat bars, topped with a creamy milk chocolate/peanut butter icing. This easy recipe makes 24!

Category: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: butterfinger bars
Servings: 24
Calories Per Serving: 286 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
  • non-stick cooking spray (for pan)
For Bars:
  • 4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar , I used dark
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) , melted
For Icing:
  • 11.5 ounces milk chocolate chips (1 bag) , or 12 ounce Hershey's milk chocolate bar
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter , do not use natural peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Mix oats, brown and granulated sugars with melted butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir well, until fully combined. Lightly coat a 9x13 baking pan (bottom and sides) with non-stick spray, then pour oat mixture into dish. Spread mixture over bottom of the pan. Use the back of a large spoon to firmly press the ingredients together. When done, you should have a very firmly compacted oat mixture base.

  3. Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes. When done, they will be crisp, golden brown around the edges. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool.

Make The Frosting:
  1. Make the frosting while the bars are cooling. Melt milk chocolate chips (or 12 oz. milk chocolate Hershey bar) in a double boiler, along with the peanut butter. (See blog post for info on double boiler). Bring lower pan with water to a gentle boil, while stirring the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the pan above. Continue to stir until frosting is smooth and creamy, then remove from heat. TIP: For this recipe, it is best to NOT use all natural peanut butter. Once bars have cooled to room temp, they're ready to frost. Pour frosting over bars, and spread, to cover the entire surface. Let bars rest, so frosting can firm up, before attempting to cut or serve.

  2. To slice: Run a butter knife around edges of the pan, and then use a sharp knife to cut the pan of bars down the middle in half. Lift an entire half of the bars from pan. They are so crisp they should hold together well. Cut this half into three equal sized long slices. Now slice each third into 4 pieces, using a sharp knife to make the cuts. Repeat with remaining half of the bars, and you will have 24 square bars, ready to eat. Store leftovers in an airtight container. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

TIP: If substituting a Hershey large milk chocolate bar for the chocolate chips, be sure to break it into smaller chunks before melting it with the peanut butter! It will melt a LOT faster that way!

The Best Brownie Frosting

This easy to make, 6-ingredient recipe for The Best Brownie Frosting makes enough thick chocolate icing for a 9×13 pan of your favorite brownies!
This easy to make, 6-ingredient recipe for The Best Brownie Frosting makes enough thick chocolate icing for a 9x13 pan of your favorite brownies!

In our home, we LOVE brownies!  Typically I make them from scratch (see my recipe here), but occasionally I make them using a box mix, if I find an incredible SALE! Then I purchase a few boxes to keep around… in case of “must have chocolate” emergencies!

Once I make brownies, I love to put yummy chocolate frosting on them for a perfect finishing touch! My husband likes his brownies without frosting… NOT ME! How can he possibly not like more creamy chocolate spread all over the top of a chocolate brownie? I suppose that is one of life’s great mysteries. But I digress… so… back to the recipe.

Well, THIS recipe for the best brownie frosting is my favorite, because it’s super easy,  only has a few ingredients, and needs no special equipment to make. Just stir the ingredients up, and you’re done! Spread it on a pan of freshly made brownies, and enjoy! Here’s how to whip up a batch, which is enough to frost a 9×13″ pan full of brownies!

How To Make The Best Brownie Frosting

Place softened, room temperature butter (NOT melted), unsweetened cocoa powder, light corn syrup, and vanilla extract in a medium sized bowl. Honey can be substituted for the corn syrup, if desired.

Stir these ingredients well with a spoon. That’s right… no need for an electric mixer! Just keep on stirring until it comes together into a thick dark brown mixture.

Ingredients are mixed together in a small bowl for the brownie frosting.Once mixed together, the frosting becomes dark brown in color.

Now add the powdered sugar into the bowl, along with 2-3 Tablespoons of milk. Give the frosting a good stir until this also is completely mixed together.

You will want the best brownie frosting to be thick, creamy and spreadable. If you find it is too thick, add a couple drops more of the milk.  If you get it too thin, simply add just a bit more powdered sugar.

Powdered sugar and a small amount of milk are mixed into the best brownie frosting.Now the icing is ready to spread on baked and cooled brownies.

Spread The Frosting Out On A Pan Of Brownies

Once you’ve made your pan of brownies, whether they are homemade or a box mix, remove the brownies from the oven, and LET THEM COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE FROSTING.

Don’t frost while the brownies are warm, because that will end up making the softened butter in the frosting melt, which then changes the texture of the frosting. NO good.

A 9x13 pan of brownies, covered with the best brownie frosting!

Once the brownies are completely covered with the best brownie frosting, let them rest for about 15 minutes. This gives the frosting time to slightly firm up just a bit. Once they have “rested” (it’s so exhausting being a brownie, right?), slice and serve your brownies!

Here are the brownies, covered with the creamy chocolate frosting.

Hope you enjoy this wonderful creamy chocolate topping on your brownies! I’ve tried lots of homemade and canned frostings, and honestly still feel like this is the best brownie frosting ever! Enjoy… and have a GREAT day!

Chocolate Caramel Clusters

Five ingredients are all you need to quickly make yummy Caramel Chocolate Clusters, with chow mein noodles, peanut butter, chocolate chips & caramels!
Five ingredients are all you need to quickly make yummy Caramel Chocolate Clusters, with chow mein noodles, peanut butter, chocolate chips & caramels!

Looking for a quick, yet tasty snack or treat that only has 5 ingredients (and one of them is water)? Check out this recipe for chocolate caramel clusters, an easy, classic “stand-by” treat you’ll be glad to have in your recipe box!

These chocolate crispy treats are a total cinch to make. I mean REALLY EASY! Caramels, chocolate chips, crunchy peanut butter and water are melted together in a small pan.

Once melted, the “sauce” is added to chow mein noodles and mixed, dropped by spoonfuls, and then cooled to room temperature before eating! That’s it! Here’s how easy these chocolate caramel clusters are to make.

How To Make Chocolate Caramel Clusters

Measure crisp chow mein noodles into a large mixing bowl, then set aside. Do this before you cook the other ingredients, because you want to have them ready to mix with the caramel chocolate mixture as soon as it comes off the heat.

Crunchy chow mein noodles are measured into mixing bowl.

In a small saucepan, combine the caramels, chocolate chips, crunchy peanut butter and water. Cook on low heat, stirring continually until all ingredients have melted and are well combined. This will only take a few minutes.

NOTE: Make sure to keep stirring! You do NOT want the caramels or chocolate to burn on the bottom of the pan! Just sayin’!

Peanut butter, chocolate chips, water and caramels are cooked in saucepan.The melted chocolate, peanut butter and caramel mixture, ready to pour!

Combine The Ingredients!

As soon as the chocolate caramel mixture is fully melted and combined, remove  the pan from the heat, and immediately pour it over the chow mein noodles. Stir quickly, to cover all the noodles with the hot chocolate mixture!

Melted caramel and chocolate mixture is poured over chow mein noodles.Once chow mein noodles are covered, they're ready to shape into clusters.

Time To Make Chocolate Caramel Clusters!

As soon as all the ingredients are fully incorporated, drop the mixture by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper or aluminum foil. Be sure to leave a tiny bit of space between each piece.

The recipe, as written below in the printable recipe card, should make between 20-30 chocolate caramel clusters. I decided to make mine using heaping teaspoons, and ended up with 20 clusters for these photos. You can determine the amount you need, and make them the size you desire.

The chocolate caramel clusters are dropped by teaspoonfuls onto foil to firm up.

Once all of the chocolate caramel clusters have been shaped and “dropped”, let them stand until they are firm. The yummy chocolate mixture will need time to harden, before serving!

Once completely firm, pull them off of the wax paper or foil, and enjoy! Store leftover clusters in an airtight container at room temperature, or in the refrigerator (your choice). They are yummy treats!

I hope you enjoy these chocolate clusters. Whether you feel they are a cookie, or candy, I hope you enjoy them! It’s a quick way to make lots of delicious treats for your family, friends, or any occasion where you have to bring a dessert! Have a GREAT day!

Do you like cookies? I’m pretty sure just about everyone that breathes loves a good cookie! Recently I hauled out one of my old cookie cookbooks (published 22 years ago!), and made a “new to us” recipe for mocha chocolate chip cookies. Wow… were they ever GOOD!

Many years ago there were “Mrs. Field” Cookie stores in practically every large shopping mall. There was just something about grabbing a freshly baked cookie while out on a shopping run that was hard to resist! Well, thanks to my old Mrs. Fields Cookie cookbook, I can make these yummy mocha chocolate chip cookies conveniently AT MY HOME!

The “mocha” flavor is not a smack you in the face kinda flavor… it’s more subtle! The cookies get that little bit of mocha flavor from pairing a small amount of instant coffee with a little bit of coffee liqueur! When that is added to the chocolate cocoa powder in the cookie dough, you’ve got a winning combination!

The recipe doesn’t take too long to make, either! Prep time is about 15 minutes, and the cookies take about 20 minutes to bake. Before ya know it, you’ve made 4 dozen DELICIOUS mocha chocolate chip cookies! Here’s how to make them (there’s also a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post):

Prepare The Cookie Dough

Before starting the dough, remember to preheat your oven to 300°F. Measure the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda into a medium sized bowl. Whisk to combine these dry ingredients, and then set the bowl aside.

Flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt are combined in large bowl.

In a SEPARATE small bowl, dissolve the instant coffee powder (or crystals) in the coffee liqueur (or STRONG coffee, if not using liqueur). Set the bowl aside.

Instant coffee powder is dissolved in coffee liqueur before adding to cookie dough.

Measure the granulated and dark brown sugars into a large mixing bowl. Blend these sugars together using an electric mixer on medium speed until combined.

Add the softened butter and beat until this mixture is thoroughly combined. It will be kind of grainy and paste-like, but just keep on beating this mixture until combined. Now add two eggs and the dissolved coffee mixture to the bowl, and continue to beat (still on medium speed) until all ingredients are combined.

Granulated and brown sugars are mixed together.Butter is mixed into the brown and granulated sugars in bowl.Eggs, and dissolved coffee powder are added to the cookie dough.

Add The Reserved Dry Ingredients To The Cookie Dough

Slowly add the flour mix to the dough for the mocha chocolate chip cookies a little bit at a time, beating on LOW speed as you add it. Continue beating on low until all the flour has been added.

TIP: This cookie dough will be VERY thick. You may wish to switch to a large spoon (and STIR) when about half of the flour mix has been added, because this is a really thick batter! Once all the flour has been incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips until combined.

Time To Bake Some Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Now that the cookie dough is ready, it’s time to bake some cookies! Drop the cookie dough using rounded Tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. You will want to leave a couple inches in between each ball of dough!

Bake the mocha chocolate chip cookies for 20-22 minutes at 300°F. Check them at 20 minutes (mine were done then!), and when done remove the baking sheets from the oven. Let the cookies rest for about a minute, then transfer them with a spatula to a wire rack to finish cooling.

YUM – Time To Enjoy a Cookie Or Two!

Now all that is left to do is pour yourself a small glass of cold milk, grab a cookie or two, and enjoy a delicious treat! Hey… why not go crazy, and put your feet up, too? You deserve a break!

The cookies are chewy, and taste wonderful! I really do think you (and those you love) will enjoy these cookies, thanks to the recipe from good old Mrs. Fields!

Enjoy this classic recipe for yummy peanut butter kiss cookies, a soft peanut butter cookie with a milk chocolate kiss on top! Recipe makes 4 dozen.

Who doesn’t LOVE peanut butter kiss cookies? This classic cookie, also known as peanut butter blossoms, has always been a personal favorite of mine. If they are on a dessert platter, it is usually one of the very first cookies I head straight to grab!

I decided to post this traditional recipe, just in case someday they don’t print the recipe on the bags of Hershey’s kisses, which is where I got it! Be prepared… that’s my motto, especially in the case of these absolutely YUMMY cookies!

Truth is, they are incredibly easy to make! Last week I made some of these peanut butter kiss cookies to add to the dessert plates I will give our neighbors this Christmas. The recipe makes approximately 48 cookies, so there are plenty to share, and a few to munch on, too! Here’s how to make them:

Unwrapping Those Kisses!

First… peel the wrappers off all 48 Hershey’s kisses. That’s probably the hardest thing about the recipe… ha ha! Try NOT to eat all 48, people! You need them ready to go, so you can press them into the soft, hot cookies as soon as they come out of the oven!

Time To Make The Cookie Dough!

Preheat your oven to 375°F. while you mix up the cookie dough.  Place peanut butter and shortening in a large mixing bowl. Beat these well with an electric mixer, until smooth.

Add 1/3 cup of granulated sugar and light brown sugar, and beat these into the peanut butter mixture until thoroughly blended. Now add the milk, one egg, and vanilla into the dough batter, and again beat well, until fully combined.

Peanut butter and vegetable shortening are beaten together.Sugars, egg, milk and vanilla are added to the cookie dough mixture.

Add Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, stir together all purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the peanut butter cookie dough, a little at a time. Continue to beat the ingredients together while you are adding them.

The dough will be fairly thick once all the ingredients have been mixed together. Now the cookie dough is ready to be shaped!

Flour, baking soda and salt are added to the cookie dough batter.

Time To Roll The Cookies!

In order to get 48 cookies out of the dough, you will need to shape roll each cookie into a 1″ ball. If you have a small cookie scoop, it makes it fairly easy to do! Roll the dough between the palms of your hands until a small ball of dough is formed.

Cookie dough is rolled into 1" balls before baking.

Place some additional granulated sugar in a small bowl (about 1/3 cup). Drop the cookie dough ball into the sugar, and turn, to coat the ball completely with sugar. Place the sugar coated dough ball onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Repeat this process until all 48 cookies have been formed and placed onto cookie sheets. Keep about 2 inches between dough balls, because the dough will spread as it bakes.

Each dough ball is rolled in granulated sugar, and then placed on baking sheet.

Time To BAKE The Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies!

Bake the cookies at 375°F. for 8-10 minutes. They will be lightly browned when done. Remove the cookies from the oven, and immediately press one of the chocolate kisses down slightly into the center of each cookie.

You will see that the cookies will crack slightly around the edges as the chocolate kiss is pressed down slightly. Once all of the kisses have been added, transfer the peanut butter kiss cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Who Wants Some Yummy Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies?

Cool the cookies completely before serving. It’s a challenge to not tear right into them, but just let them cool down before popping one into your mouth, okay?

Here are some finished peanut butter kiss cookies, ready to eat!

I really hope you enjoy these peanut butter and chocolate kiss cookies! Peanut butter and chocolate are one of my favorite flavor combos, so how could I NOT love them? They’re so good, and I hope you love them too! Have a great day, and thank you for visiting my blog!
