Great recipes ya'll. My DD did the haystacks for a class recipe booklet. She substituted choclate chips for the butterscotch chips. So fast and so good.

A really simple treat for peanut butter lovers.

1 pkg refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough
1 bag miniature peanut butter cups
powdered sugar

Take enough dough to wrap around a peanut butter cup, make into a ball, and place on ungreased cookie pan, bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with melted chocolate if desired.

I have to add my favorites:

First line a microwaveable plate with wax paper and line with little pretzels or pretzel squares. Top with rolo candy cut in half (carmel UP). Microwave for 30-45 sec and press pecan half into soft chocolate to slightly flatten. WALA intanst Turtles.

Second, this one taste just like Twix
1 sleeve saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
chocolate chips as desired

Preheat oven to- 400
Line a cookie sheet with foil and lay out crackers on top
Stir together butter and brown sugar on the stovetop until boiling. Boil 1 minute.
Pour butter mixture over graham crackers. Put in the oven
Bake 3-6 minutes until bubbly.
Remove from oven. Cool slightly. Spinke on semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Cool completely. Break each apart and store.

These are great. But can someone tell me what chocolate bark is? I ahve never heard of it. Also someone mentioned about going to the craft store and using the candy wafers instead of buying the kisses which is a great idea. Does the chocolate taste as good as hersheys?

World's Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge....(and tastes great too!)

1 regular size container white cake frosting
1 regular size jar of peanut butter

Spoon contents of each container into a microwave safe large bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until the mixture can be thoroughly mixed (it takes 2 - 30 second increments in my microwave) After mixing completely pour into a Pam sprayed glass 9X9-inch pan. Will harden completely in the refrigerator.

This is VERY good, and I was skeptical.....

It's not cheap, but it's goood Well we all know the stand by of chocolate dipped strawberries...

But you can also take a syringe, and inject the strawberries with Grand Marnier or Brandy, whatever libation you prefer (though I wouldn't suggest Kahlua, blech!). Then you dip them in the chocolate.

Chocolate dipped real orange wedges (not the gummy type, though I've seen that too) are out of this WORLD.

And I know you said less then 30 minutes, but this has to sit overnight and technically takes less then 30 minutes in effort:

Jar of maraschino cherries
Chocolate Bark

Drain out the juice in the maraschino cherries (or just half, depending on your tolerance). Refill with Brandy. Let steep overnight in the refrigerator.

Remove cherries from jar, using only the ones that still have stems. Remove excess moisture from the outside of the cherry.

Melt chocolate, dip cherries one at a time. Put on wax paper to firm.

Perfect for the cold and flu season as one cherry will clear out your sinuses.

Microwave Peanut Brittle

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup roasted, salted peanuts
1 tsp margarine or butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda

Butter cookie sheet. In 1 1/2 Qt. microwave saft casserole, combine sugar & corn syrup. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir in peanuts. Microwave on high for 3 - 5 minutes or till light brown. Stir in margerine & vanilla; blend well. Microwave on high for 1 - 2 minutes (peanuts should be lightly browned). Add baking soda & stir gently till light & foamy. Pour onto buttered cookie sheet. Let cool 30 minutes. Break into pieces to serve.
