We Have a Dessert Winner!

We had a great time with family today, playing and eating and laughing...

My sister-in-law Jen is the Pie Queen, and made a fabulous mixed fruit pie. Delish.  Of the ones I brought, the Chocolate Chip Cookie Delight got the love - definitely a keeper.  (Recipe here.)

The Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats tasted good as expected - how can you go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter??  They were a tad soft, possibly just because they had been out a while.  It will be nice to have a good variation in the cookbook.  (Recipe here.)

And, as predicted, the Creamy Snowballs were SWEET.  I made them pretty small so they weren't too overwhelming.  They formed into balls better than I expected.

Creamy Snowballs

Combine and beat until smooth:
1/2 pkg cream cheese
2 cups icing sugar
2 tbsp milk
2/3 cup melted chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla

Fold in 3 cups colored mini marshmallows, mix well, then chill for 30 minutes. (I left it in the fridge until the next day and it worked fine.)  Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls (pressing into shape with my fingertips worked better than rolling in my palms).  Roll in coconut.

These freeze well.  Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.  From Company's Coming Cookies.

May you have enjoyable family times this summer, and may you wow them with some Chocolate Chip Cookie Delight...!
