Men Love This One Too! Minty Chocolate Bars

P1130131

Another cookie that men love to eat! At for least the men in my life - these have been a favorite for years. There is just something irresistible about mint and chocolate together.

Mint Chocolate Bars is a very easy cookie treat to make. It takes a bit of time for each layer to cool between steps, but nothing hard here! Make up a batch and watch them disappear!

Men love this stuff! Trust me! Make a batch, put it in a tin and it will be a most welcome gift!

Added December 5th.  Notice the post date above!  As of this minute - the entire tin is gone!  My man simply could not keep his mitts off of these!

Making Almond Butter Crunch is very, very easy and is perfect for beginning candy makers.

COOKIES!

It is time to bake cookies! And make candy! And bake sweet breads and sweet treats!

My favorite time of year - Winter Holidays - is here! Sunday the 27th was the first Sunday of Advent and in Holland the celebration of the Feast of St. Nicholas is already begun! It is high time to warm up the oven and bake up some yummy goodness!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I am so looking forward to another delicious dinner at Diane's house. And a few days off! So this will be the last post until next Monday, November 28th - time to share the contents of my stockings and announce the 2011 Christmas Stocking Giveaway!

It is almost December 1st!

Many of us are up to our ears right now in baking and cooking and cleaning and preparing for the big dinner. Others are packing their bags to enjoy a home cooked feast with family.
