TREATS!!

The winner of the recipe posts is Karen who brought BBQ Baby Back Ribs! A big hunk of chocolate is coming your way Karen! Thanks to all who have contributed so generously by bringing a treat to the party! Here are links and recipes for the yummy treats brought by some of our party guests: No need to worry about copying them down, I'll put them in the "Goodie Bags"! Marsha of Cute Stuff Inside has brought some CHOCOLATE Chip Muffins! She says they are quick and easy to make! Tedi of TLC and More has brought Apple Cider Doughnuts! Perfect for a brisk fall day! Teddi has also added this Hot Chocolate recipe, wouldn't it be great with those doughnuts? 1 box (25.6 oz) Instant Non-Fat Powdered/Dry Milk 1 6 oz. Jar of Powdered Non-Dairy Creamer* 2 Cups Powdered Sugar 1 16-oz. Can Instant Chocolate Drink (Nestle Quick) Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Keep covered to store. To use mix 1/4 cup mix with 1 cup water. Heat and enjoy! Makes approximately 100 cups. *I sometimes buy different flavors of creamer just to mix it up - cinnamon and hazelnut are yummy! I have often made up large batches of this and put portions in decorative bags or mugs to give away as gifts. Raspberry Jam Coconut Slice from Katie in Australia, offers a treat that her grandmother used to make. Sounds tasty! Ingredients: 2 cups plain flour 1 cup caster sugar 125g butter, chilled, cubed 3 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 3/4 cup raspberry jam 2 cups desiccated coconut Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 3cm deep, 24cm x 29.5cm (base) lamington pan. Process flour, 1/2 cup sugar and butter to resemble breadcrumbs. Add 1 egg and vanilla. Process to form a dough. Press dough into base of prepared pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until light golden. Spread jam over warm base. Whisk remaining eggs and remaining 1/2 cup sugar together. Stir in coconut. Spread over jam. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely in pan. Cut into pieces. Serve. My sister made Raspberry Coconut Slice today and sent me the US conversions for the recipe - Thanks Marianne!! I can't wait to go up to her house to try them!! Ingredients: 2 cups plain flour 1 cup sugar ½ cup butter, chilled, cubed 3 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¾ cup raspberry jam 2 cups coconut flakes Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and line a 9 x 13. Process flour, ½ cup sugar and butter to resemble breadcrumbs. Add 1 egg and vanilla. Process to form a dough. Press dough into base of prepared pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until light golden. Spread jam over warm base. Whisk remaining eggs and remaining ½ cup sugar together. Stir in coconut. Spread over jam. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely in pan. Cut into pieces. Serve. Need something salty and hot? Try some corn chips with Nanette's Homemade Salsa:2 quarts tomatoes with skin off and chopped 1 onion chopped 1 green pepper chopped 2 jalapenos chopped 1 can green chillies (optional) 2 hot peppers or red chillies, chopped 1 T salt 1/2 tsp. cumin Depending on the acidity of tomatoes - Add 1-2 T lime or lemon if bottling the salsa. Sandi brought some yummy comfort food to our party! Grandma Goldie's Rhubarb Cobbler In medium bowl mix: 4 cups cut-up rhubarb 1 cup sugar 3 tablespoons flour Mix together and spread in 9 x 13 " pan Next mix:1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder Add 2 tablespoons melted butter to this dry mixture, then blend in one beaten egg. Mix all til crumbly and then sprinkle over top of rhubarb mixture. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes at 350 or until crust is golden. Recipe is given for a rhubarb cobbler although cherries, blueberries, peaches, and apples all work well with this cobbler crust. I think it must be the egg that makes this crust so crunchy. The cobbler is best when warm from the oven with a big scoop of ice cream on top! One of my favs! Makes a lot of oooey gooey bars! Oatmeal Carmelata's Crust: 2 cups flour 2 cups quick oats 1 tsp soda 1-1/2 cup firm packed brown sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1 1/4 cup butter, softened (NOT margarine!) Combine crust ingredients and press 1/2 of the mixture (about 3 cups) into a 9X13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Filling: 12 oz pkg chocolate chips 1/2 c chopped walnuts 12 oz Mrs. Richardson's butterscotch caramel (Yes, Mrs. Richardson's is best!) Sprinkle warm crust with chips, nuts and caramel. Sprinkle remainder of crust mixture on top. Now bake 18 - 22 minutes at 350 degrees. People Puppy Chow Source: Old Farmer's Almanac 6-ounce (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips 6-ounce (1 cup) milk chocolate chips 1 cup peanut butter 1 box Crispix cereal Melt first three ingredients together in microwave. Mix well. Pour over: 1 box Crispix cereal. Put into a bag. (A grocery bag works great.) Put in 1/2 box powdered sugar. Shake well to coat. Thanks Cleary K! Peanut butter and chocolate is always a good thing! Amanda of Busy Little Quilter has brought some Chicken Pizza! This recipe has garlic cooked chicken, bacon and ranch dressing!Yummmm! Carrie has brought a delicious Cheese Ball, grab some crackers! Mix 1 16oz. cream cheese and 1/2 stick of butter with these spices: 6 t. dehydrated onion 2 t. parsley 1 t. cayenne pepper(optional) 1 t. paprika 1/8 t. sugar 1/8 t. salt 1/2 t. cumin 1t. garlic powder Roll into a ball and then roll into chopped pecans. Chill until firm. Serve with your favorite crackers. Apple-Pear Crumble Pie This is one of my favorite deserts, and it doesn't even have chocolate, it's that good! I love to find recipes like this one from Kraft Foods in magazines and give them to my sister who cooks. She likes the challenge and I LOVE the results! I haven't picked a bad one yet! Karen's BBQ Baby Back Ribs Rub ribs with McCormick's Pork Rub Wrap in aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 2 hours Place on grill (low heat) turn every 30 minutes After grilling for approximately 2 hours--open foil and brush with BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays) turn and brush the other side. Let cook for about 20 minutes and turn Cook another 20-30 minutes. Remove and serve. Yes, you may all be excused from the party to make some ribs! Just make sure your hands are clean when you come back! Scotcheroos, a family favorite my grandma used to make for all our gatherings! 1 cup corn syrup 1 cup sugar 1 cup peanut butter Cook the above ingredients over medium heat until the mixture boils. Mix in 7 cups Rice Crispies. Press mixture into a buttered 9X13 pan and set aside. In a saucepan, melt a 6 oz. package of semi sweet chocolate chips and a 6 oz package of butterscotch chips. Pour on top of the Rice Crispies. Let it sit for about 4 hours or until topping has hardened. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Drop spoonfuls dough on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until brown. Rock Cookies brought by Niki Sounds interesting! I bet my 3 year old son would love them!
