... I made these:
1 package graham crackers (ground to powder in a food processor or blender)
1 box powdered sugar
2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 C creamy peanut butter
32 oz hershey's chocolate bars melted
Mix all ingredients but melted chocolate together in kitchen aid with paddle attachment
Press into a buttered 9x13" baking dish
Top with melted hershey's chocolate
Let sit until firm
Debra Sadler's Scottish Shortbread
1lb unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 C white sugar
5 C flour
Press dough with hands and rolling pin into a large 9x15" cookie baking sheet. Score into rectangles with a plastic knife and prick with a fork.
Bake at 275 for 1 hr. (Yields 48 biscuits)
Hoping to make this Mocha Cocoa as a delicious pairing with the shortbread - excited to try this recipe :)
Homemade Instant Hot Cocoa Recipe
4 cups dry milk
|1 cup non dairy creamer||1 4oz pkg chocolate pudding mix|
|1 1/2 cup sugar||2/3 cup cocoa powder||1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips|
How to Make
First finely grind or chop chocolate chips. I used my Magic Bullet Express Mixer to grind the chocolate chips to a powdery texture so it will melt completely. I tried a slightly more coarse texture which results in a longer melting time in the mug. The taste is the same, just took a few more minutes for the chunkier chocolate to melt in the liquid.
Place the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times till thoroughly blended. Store in an airtight container. Makes approximately 32 servings and yields 8 cups of instant hot cocoa mix.
Mix and Serve. Mix 3 tablespoons of hot cocoa mixture with 8 ounces of boiling water or hot milk.
Or this twist (with decaf or regular instant coffee)...
Instant Mocha Cappuccino Mix
|1 1/2 cup instant coffee||2 cups hot cocoa mix (recipe from above)|
|2 cups non dairy creamer|
How to Make
Blend all your ingredients in a food processor until they are the same consistency. Makes approximately 33 servings and yields 5 1/2 cups of instant mocha cappuccino mix.
Mix and Serve. Mix 2 tablespoons of instant mocha cappuccino mix with 8 ounces of boiling water.
