But, something is preventing me from making those cookies. And I'm just going to have to take care of it before I can do anything else.
Honestly, I adapted this recipe from one I saw on the internet somewhere a long time ago before I cared about where I got recipes from. I'm pretty sure the original was a Kraft recipe though.
1 c (2 sticks) butter
1 1/2 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
1 bag chocolate chips
10 oz bag mini marshmallows
Cream butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add baking powder and salt and stir. Stir in flour 1 cup at a time. Gently stir in graham cracker crumbs. Spread 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 9X13" dish. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top. Eat some chocolate chips and then sprinkle the rest on the marshmallows. (You really only need 8 ounces of chocolate, but they don't sell 8 ounce bags of chocolate chips.)
|(Let's ignore the weird chocolate I'm using here, okay?)|
Let it cool for at least an hour before slicing it, or cutting out shapes with a cutter. I find it helpful to rinse the cutter in water between cut-outs.
Seriously, I'm putting these in cute little bags and depositing them straight into my children's Easter baskets. And then eating all of the "scraps" so they don't see them and ruin the surprise. (Because that's the job of a mother. You've got to look out for your kids.)
May your Easter be full of sugar and happiness and mashed potatoes. (Man, I love mashed potatoes. Do people exist in this world that don't like mashed potatoes? Feel free to give me your mashed potatoes if you don't want them. And any Cadbury eggs you don't want. And...Happy Easter anyway!)
