No bake cookies
This sounds simple,maybe even silly, but my landlord's wife gave me some "home made" cookies last Christmas, turns out all they were was Ritz crackers with peanut butter in them,then dipped in milk chocolate....amazingly good, i think i will try this this Christmas with Nutella,a little black raspberry jam,and white chocolate, does anyone else have cookie recipes that are so simple yet so very tasty?
my favorite no-bake cookies (surprisingly good and easy to make with kids) are very basic, and the quantities are very flexible:
1 can peanuts
1 bag (16 oz, I think?) semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 large can crispy chinese noodles (the kind that sometimes go on salads. can be found in most grocery stores)
melt the chocolate and butterscotch together, pour over noodles and peanuts, and mix. make into "clusters" and set on wax paper. refrigerate overnight, then peel off. keep in cool place.
These are pretty darn good!

1/2 C Coconut
In a pot combine the milk,cocoa, butter and sugar
Then bring the mixture to a boil over high heat

a friend of mine makes cheeseburger cookies:
take two vanilla wafers, a grasshopper (or a thin mint), and some shredded coconut dyed green, and some yellow frosting. Assemble to resemble cheeseburgers. Nilla wafers for bun, grasshopper for burger, coconut dyed green as lettuce. Sooo decadent and so cute.
