|Yea my eyes are closed...|
As promised here are the recipes for the cookies that I made for the cookie exchange last night.
First I made Pumkin Cranberry Muffin Tops. I actually made these once previously and loved them so I decided to make them again.
Then I made my own peppermint bark (which I'm obsessed with). I based my recipe off of the one I found at Peanut Butter Fingers.
8 ozs Bakers brand semisweet chocolate
8ozs white chocolate
1/2 tsp canola oil
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
3 crushed candy canes
First I melted the semisweet chocolate in the microwave for 30 second intervals mixing in between until it was all melted. I then mixed in 1/4 tsp canola oil and spread the chocolate evenly on a baking sheet lined with tin foil that had been sprayed with Pam. I then stuck this in the fridge until it hardened. Then I did the same thing with the white chocolate adding 1/4 tsp canola oil and 1/2 tsp peppermint extract and then spreading it over the dark chocolate. Then I sprinkled the candy cane peices over it and stuck it back in the fridge and broke it into squares when it had hardened.
