Fluffernutter Cookies

For the past week or so, I’ve been meaning to make some cookies but just haven’t had the initiative to start baking.  I sucked it up and bought a roll of peanut butter cookie dough to kick-start my baking mood today.  I used a camera Keith bought me yesterday for the pictures!

I ended up making some cookies with marshmallow fluff inspired by the fluffernutter sandwich I had for lunch.

Here’s what I did:
I took the prepared cookie dough and rolled it into little balls and placed them a couple of inches apart on a cookie sheet.   I used a heaping tablespoon to get a nice sized cookie.

Once they were all placed on the sheet, I made an indentation in the middle of the cookie.  Some recipes call for you to make the indentation with your fingertip, but I made mine with a knuckle so I wouldn’t get TOO much dough under my nails!

Then I popped the cookie sheet in a 350*F (175*C) oven for about 15 minutes.  Right after you take the cookies out of the oven, re-make the indentation in the warm cookies. The dough was very hot, so I made the dents with the back of a teaspoon.

Then, I filled the little dents with Fluff.  I added it while the dough was still warm and I think that helped me out a little by softening it and making it drop from the spoon a little easier.

I didn’t want to fill ALL of the cookies with Fluff, so I filled a few with Nutella and I really can’t decide which one I like better!

Muddy Buddies

My friend Hannah came over to hang out tonight while Keith was at work.  She brought ingredients to make Muddy Buddies.

She put 1 cup of chocolate chips in a saucepan with 1/2 cup of peanut butter.  She melted it over low heat on the stove.  While it was heating, Hannah measured out 9 cups of Chex cereal in a baggie that seals.

Once the chocolate mixture was melted together, she added 1 tablespoon of vanilla, then poured it into the bag with the cereal. She sealed the bag and shook it all up to cover the cereal with chocolate.  After it was mixed, she added 1 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to the bag and continued to shake it together.

Then, she laid it all out on waxed paper to dry before she put it in a clean baggie.

It was delicious…..and kinda dangerous laying out on the countertop.  🙂
