Muddy Balls Recipe

Easy to make and would be fun for kid’s cooking with some adult assistance.

Ingredients:

2 cups chocolate chips

¼ c. real butter

1 10 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 ½ c. plain flour

1 tbs. cornstarch

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350o. Very lightly grease cookie pan.

Method: Melt chocolate chips and butter in saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add the sweetened milk, flour and cornstarch. Mix well without beating. Use a meatballer, or hand form approximately one inch balls and place on cookie sheet about an inch apart. Bake 7-8 minutes just until firm, crusty. Cool on baking sheet for a couple of minutes, then transfer to cooling rack. Makes about four dozen cookie balls.   Optional: Arrange some of the cookies close together on baking sheet and drizzle with either chocolate or white glaze. Make glaze by adding very small amounts of water to ½ cup powdered sugar or combination of powdered sugar with about a tablespoon of cocoa. Stir well and put in a plastic baggie. Barely snip one corner to squeeze out the glaze. Squiggle across rows of cookies quickly and let designs form naturally. Some balls may also be rolled in powdered sugar to make snowy balls. Do this part while still warm.

Um-mm, peanut butter is Yum-m!

Choco-peanut logs

These may be made as simple crunchy logs or formed and decorated to fit any party theme.

Ingredients:

1 ¼ cup plain flour

½ tsp Rumford baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ cup shortening

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 tbs. cocoa powder

1 heaping tablespoon powdered sugar.

Preheat oven to 375o.  Lightly grease baking sheets.

Beat peanut butter and shortening until well blended.  Add sugar and beat well, then add egg and vanilla and beat till fluffy.  Mix in dry ingredients all together except for the cocoa and powdered sugar. Do not beat, just mix thoroughly. 

Take half the dough and add in the cocoa and powdered sugar, mixing well.  Take this dough and roll out a log (or two if you prefer).  Take the plain dough and do the same.  Then roll and twist the two types of logs together to somewhat meld flavors. At this point you may use a cookie press to make round or star logs about three inches long.  Otherwise roll out the dough to desired roll thickness (½” to ¾ “) and slice into three inch lengths.  Place one inch apart on baking sheet.  Bake for 5 – 8 minutes depending on size just until browning.  Cool on pan several minutes to stiffen cookies, then transfer to wire rack or paper towel covered brown paper bags to cool completely.  Decorate as desired when thoroughly cooled.  Note:  Above ghoul fingers were rolled into lengths and scored for knuckles, then a slivered almond was placed on end for fingernail.

About ¾ c powdered sugar for sifting over cookies

1 tbs. apple juice concentrate

Royal Icing: Dries fast and hard.

 This recipe uses real egg whites, so it dries quickly and hard.  It may also be used as a ‘glue’ to attach cookie décor or to make gingerbread houses and such.  Humidity does affect its outcome, so if it is too thick, add drops of water to thin.  If too thin, add small amounts of powdered sugar until thickened properly.  Use gel or paste colors to tint icing for best results. Note:  Meringue powder is available commercially  and is used to make Royal Icing also. It is available at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, bakeries and some grocers.

1 pound powdered sugar

½ tsp cream of tartar

3 egg whites (Size will affect need for consistency adjustment with powdered sugar or water.)

Flavoring extract to taste, as desired.  This will also affect the consistency.   Makes about 2 cups icing.

Method:

Mix powdered sugar and cream of tartar in  bowl of electric mixer and then stir in egg whites to moisten before beating on low speed for a couple of minutes.

Then turn to medium high and beat 2-3 minutes until the icing is smooth and white. Beat in flavoring and color as desired, then adjust consistency for glazing or decorating as needed.   Keep bowl covered with damp cloth to prevent crusting as it crusts quickly.  Most cookie decorating can be done with a simple paper cone type ‘funnel’.  This is useful to decorate and discard with little cleanup required.  If you do not have parchment cone paper a freezer-type plastic baggie may be used.  Simply fill the bag as needed (Don’t fill it all the way!) and snip a tiny corner to press out lines, beads and squiggles of icing.  Dry the cookie décor well at room temperature before storing. 

Suggestion:  While royal icing décor is still wet, it may be sprinkled with colored sugars or other décor.

It is not preferable to use this icing as a filler as it does dry very hard.  It is best for small thin décor.

Fantastic Edible Glitter

Edible glitter is a dramatic decorating item and is available at many hobby stores, bakeries and grocers.  It comes in several colors and can make a snowy frosting look dazzling, or a frosting rose sparkle. It must be sprinkled on damp icing or frosting to adhere.

Edible glitter is available through Wilton’s or Sweet Celebrations and others online or if you have a local store.  It is the sap from Acacia tree and is colorless, tasteless, odorless.  It is often used as a thickener commercially.  It is available in several colors.

You can easily make your own edible glitter in any color you might choose.  You do need a smooth flat glass surface to bake dry in an oven.  It is simply accomplished and is an extraordinary touch to any type of icing decoration.  Cookies with this décor may not be stacked as it will crush the glitter effect. 

Simple recipe for Edible Glitter

2 ounces gum arabic

½ cup cool water

Drops of desired tint or color, or may be left clear.

Heat above ingredients in saucepan over low-medium heat till dissolved, stirring constantly.  Paint onto smooth clean glass and dry in less than 200o F oven.  Watch carefully to check when dried.  (Thick or thin areas will crush to different flakes of glitter when you scrape the dried material off with a knife.)  When all has dried remove glass from oven and cool.  Scrape off gum arabic and let it flake off into a container. Crush flakes slightly as needed and store in small air tight containers.  This recipe may be halved as it does make quite a bit to paint and dry.  Otherwise, paint on part of solution clear, then tint the rest as desired before baking and drying it also.   To use, sprinkle glitter on wet frosting or icing decoration as desired. 

Edible glitter makes a simple cookie Special!

Sugar or icing roses are more-than-lovely with the sparkle of edible glitter.

Hey, Micky Dee, the potato chip cookies taste a lot like chocolate covered pretzels - a bit sweeter. Haven't you eaten them? I dipped big pretzels in chocolate and rolled them in nuts last year for Christmas and everybody really liked them. Or else they lied to me. I think you're fibbing about the PC cookies being crazy too. Huh? Glad you stopped by and hope you got something to eat.

Loren's Gem, thanks for enjoying the recipes. Another I should have put in was one I made yesterday: Peanut butter cookies in mini-cupcake tins; shaped into a tart shell with a tiny glass jiggled and pressed in the center; baked and then filled with dark chocolate and peanuts. I did not have any caramels or I would have drizzled it on the finished yummies!

Now let's hear about your recipe success!

carriethomson, the glitter is a little pricey to buy but is really 'dressy' on frostings. Making your own is lots of fun and you can customize colors to what you want. I have been thinking this week - already - about what I am going to 'glitter up' for Christmas baking.

Bet YOU'LL enjoy doing yours too!

mfhaslam, that edible glitter really can make a beautiful difference in any cake, cookie decoration. Making your own is simple: Buying the little canisters of it is a bit costly in comparison, but a little does go a long way too. Enjoy your creations!

I voted awesome, useful, beautiful and sent them to my FB and Tweeted.

I was sharing the sugar---everyone can use some.

Thanks,

I must admit that I love all of these cookies! I am partial to peanut butter, but I like the nice variety you have here. The black pepper in the dark molasses cookies sounds especially spicy and unique. I had no idea you can make edible glitter at home, either! You're quite the cookie guru. Thank you for sharing!

vespawoolf, I'm with you on the PB, but anything with chocolate gets me too. That edible glitter is easy to make and it really dresses up any frosting dessert. Thank you for enjoying the cookie info and letting me know.

I really like the cookie recipes and will try a few of them. I certainly do like quick and easy. If I do not have to use the oven I find that recipe a plus. Thanks for the nice interesting hub.
