    Treats for DH's squadron...[Update with pics!]

    I was planning on baking some goodies for DH and his co-workers and Friday, he flies, so it'd be perfect! I need some good recipes for desserts, cookies, brownies, etc. I asked DH for requests, and apparently, they want "anything with sugar" So, any good recipe ideas??

    Preferably something not too messy that doesn't require a plate and fork. TIA!

    Edited to add pics:









    DH laughed at the little toothpick signs, but I think they're cute!

    I've made this simple recipe for DH's co-workers and I'm always asked to make more. They are so good, yet simple and not messy:

    Rolo Pretzel Turtles

    Ingrdients:
    1 - package small regular shaped pretzels (waffle squares or rounds)
    1-13-oz. package unwrapped rolo candies (aprox 60 in package)
    1 - package pecan halves almonds or m&m candies

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and place pretzels individually to form one layer only.

    Place one Rolo Candy on top of each pretzel. Place the baking sheet in a 250 degree oven for 4 minutes or until the candies softened.

    Immediately remove from the oven and quickly place a pecan half on top of a candy and push down to squish the chocolate into the pretzel and flatten out.

    Cool for 20 minutes, then place uncovered in refrigerator for about 20 minutes to set. Transfer to a decorative plate.

    At my husband's last shop, I brought them sugar cookies. They were as happy and on sugar rush as a bunch of 5 year olds. Can't go wrong with sugar cookies.

    My DH and his coworkers really enjoy rice crispy treats made like this:

    3 cups of rice crispies

    Melt 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup peanut butter with a teaspoon of vanilla and some cinnamon. Mix with cereal, put in pan and put in the fridge for a while.

    I just made some peppermint bark. It was super easy.

    24oz chocolate chips
    24oz white chocolate chips
    20ish candy canes (I don't know how many I used, but I bought 2 small boxes)
    Mint extract

    Crush up candy canes into small pieces. Melt chocolate chips, adding a few drops (maybe 1/4 teaspon) of mint extract. Pour over a cookie sheet (covered with wax paper), then freeze. While that is in the freezer, melt the white chocolate chips, then pour onto the frozen chocolate. Spread candy cane pieces over, then freeze. After it's all frozen just break it up.

    Those are the best things, and so simple!

    Here are a few others:

    Peppermint bark

    1pkg white almond bark
    1 pkg peppermint sticks/candy (however much you want to use)

    Crush up peppermints
    Melt almond bark in microwave
    Mix the two together, spread onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet/cake pan and freeze. Once frozen, try and cut up or lift and drop wax paper or it to break up on its own.

    Peanut butter cornflake candy:

    Martha Washington Candy (takes a while to make, but is wonderful)

    I have a couple really easy recipes and they are awesome!

    Pumpkin muffins - to die for! ‘Tis the Season for Pumpkin! | Living Bigler

    And then another simple recipe is red velvet cookies.

    Ingredients: red velvet mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, white chocolate chips.

    Mix it all together, make balls, put in 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Super easy and DH's favorite!

    I second this! It is crazy good!



    These are easy and a big hit:


    White Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies

    1 package Oreo cookies

    6 ounces white chocolate

    1 package peppermint sprinkles

    Melt white chocolate.

    Dip each Oreo in the white chocolate, then lay out on a paper towel or baking rack.

    Sprinkle with peppermint sprinkles.

    Let them cool for about 30 minutes.

    A lot of people like Muddy Buddy's (Puppy Chow I think some people call it too?). I think it's gross, but it's easy to make and it's always gone when I make it.
