In the oven and cooling on my countertop. Don't you just love my silver sparkly countertop? lol
One more goodie...
Chocolate Cookie Bark
2 Tbl. peanut butter
6 squares Baker's white chocolate--melted (I used the off-brand)
10 oreo cookies, crumbled, divided
8 squares Baker's semi-sweet chocolate--melted (off brand)
Add the peanut butter to the white chocolate. Then add half of the crushed oreos to the mixture. Add the other half of the oreos to the chocolate mixture. Drop spoonfuls on a waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Use a knife to swirl the chocolates together. Put baking sheet in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm. Break up and eat! Yum-O!
Hope you enjoy these treats! I got them off of this website: http://www.kraftfoods.com I get their recipe emails and have really enjoyed looking at them and using some of them. They even have video tutorials for some of them!
I hope all of you have had a Merry Christmas! I'll be posting more pics and adventures in the next few days!

Carrot Souffle (this recipe makes two servings --two pretty big servings! You can half it for just one family gathering)
- 3 lbs carrots (I like buying the bags of the little carrots that are ready to eat...they're sold in one lb bags)
- 6 large eggs
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder (I used the aluminum free)
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups butter (!!)
Cook carrot in boiling water, about 15 minutes. Position knife blade in food processor (I just have a blender...it works fine); add carrots, butter, and remaining ingredients (I had to mix the ingredients together in one bowl and put carrots with some mixture on top in the blender. It was so much that I had to do it in about 3 or 4 rounds. Then I would pour each batch into a big bowl just to make sure all the ingredients were mixed together well). Process until smooth. Spoon into 2 lightly greased 1 1/2 quart baking dishes. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Serve immediately.
