I was going to pass this one by because I am in a whirlwind of baking Christmas cookies right now, but this recipe is so darn easy and really tasty I just did it anyway. They will be a nice treat for all the people that my husband and I work with.
I love that Matt and Renato filled the pages of their Baked cookbooks with nostalgia, that is one of the things that attracted me to these books, however,
I have no fond memories of Mom or Aunties whipping up these treats in the kitchen, in fact no one in my family has ever made these. Since they were popular in the seventies, I guess I would have been the Mom making these for my son. But I never did. The funny thing is, while I was making these today it made me think of a Weight Watcher treat I used to make in the seventies or eighties....not sure, I have been on Weight Watchers so many times it would make your head spin! But anyway, we used to take a diet hot chocolate pack or a Weight Watcher shake package and mix it with peanut butter and oatmeal. and water. At the time I thought I died and went to heaven! Even in it's Weight Watcher form these cookie/candy things are delicious!
I like that this recipe was no-bake and they literally went together in minutes. The longest wait was while they were chilling in the fridge. Give them a try if you never have... you will be amazed as how addictive they are!
To see what the other bakers did this week and to get the recipe please visit the Baked Sunday Morning site. There are truly some amazing bakers in the group! I am happy to be part of it!
Whenever I get the chance I will keep on baking on Sunday morning!
Yours look great! Did you use some black cocoa powder to get that deep brown color?ReplyDelete
I really like the plate in the last picture and your cookies look greatReplyDelete
Thanks! I got those little plates in an antique store they were a set of 6.Delete
I agree, these are so addictive. I can't stop eating them. This is a recipe I'd forgotten about and am so happy to have it back.ReplyDelete
Hmm, I think I also remember a weight watchers recipe with this flavour. I think too that they sold bars in this flavour. Your cookies look so lovely and dark.ReplyDelete
