My kids and I love to make candies, cookies and sweets especially on the weekends. I have a bunch of old recipes that has been passed down through my family but I also like to go online and check out new and sometimes different recipes. One of my favorite places to check out for goodies is www.cooksrecipes.com But here are a few that I have gotten from there that my kids really love and I am sure daughter will too. [b] Nutty Nougat Caramel Bites[/b] 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 (3.4-ounce) package butterscotch-flavored instant pudding mix 2 large eggs, slightly beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/3 cups NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels 1/4 cup butter 1 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk 1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow creme 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped salted peanuts 1 (14-ounce) package soft caramels 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream 1 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels 1/3 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 1. For Cookie Base: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)F (175°C). Line 17 x 11 x 1-inch baking pan with parchment paper. 2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add pudding mix, eggs and vanilla extract; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 1/3 cups butterscotch morsels. Spread and pat dough evenly into prepared baking pan. 3. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Carefully hold pan 2 to 3-inches above a heat-resistant surface and allow pan to drop. (This creates a chewier cookie base.) Cool completely in pan on wire rack. 4. For Nougat Filling: Melt butter in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat. Add granulated sugar and evaporated milk; stir. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. 5. Stir in marshmallow creme, peanut butter and vanilla extract. Add peanuts; stir well. Spread nougat mixture over cookie base. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set. 6. For Caramel Layer: Combine caramels and cream in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Spread caramel mixture over nougat layer. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set. 7. For Icing: Melt milk chocolate morsels, 1/3 cup butterscotch morsels and peanut butter in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Spread icing over caramel layer. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 8. To Serve, let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Makes 15 dozen pieces. Goober Brittle 1 cup raw peanuts 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon butter or margarine 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon baking soda 1. Combine peanuts, sugar, corn syrup and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 8 minutes. 2. Add butter and vanilla. Stir and microwave on high for 1 minute. 3. Stir in baking soda, mixing until light and foamy. 4. Spread onto a baking sheet lined with lightly buttered aluminum foil. 5. Allow to cool before breaking into pieces. Makes 10 servings. I am sure that you can find a ton more that you will enjoy making...and best of all enjoy eating. Have fun and happy mylotting!
