Today was a rainy spring day, I didn’t mind though! It gave us a chance to get to some things here in the house. The morning was filled with baking. During breakfast R., wondered if she could bake cookies. I was all for the idea, since our cookie jar has been sitting empty for a while. So it sounded like the perfect thing to do on this rainy day. We made four recipes of Oatmeal Chocolate cookies. Now the cookie jar is filled, plus three cookie tins. Should last a week here, I hope. LOL
Younger ones had fun looking through the cookbooks!
N. really wanted to make something too, I couldn’t have all working on the cookies, so I told him we would make something together. We decided to make Chocolate Snowballs.
1/4 butter (or margarine)
1/2 c. milk
3/4 – 1c. cocoa
2 c. sugar
Mix well. Bring to boil while stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. quick oats
2 c. coconut
Stir well and let cool. Roll into balls and coat in coconut.
Simple to make and delicious!!
