These. Are. So. Delicious!
I signed up to bring “treats” for my preschooler’s Valentine’s Day party. Then come to find out: there’s a nut allergy in the classroom!
What to do?!
Do-it-yourself snacks for those Easter baskets! Fill snack-sized plastic zipper bags with 1/2 cup cocoa puffs for “Bunny Poops”, or 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows for “Bunny Tails”. If you’re buying a fresh bag of marshmallows, you may want to spread them out on a paper plate and let them air-dry for about 30 minutes; they tend to clump together in sticky lumps if you put them in the zipper bag too fresh (learned the hard way).
My mother got this recipe many years ago from a childhood family friend of my father’s named Mina Newton (one of those “like an Aunt, but not really” situations). I’ve never been a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but these are so soft and chewy and tasty that I can’t resist! These are my husband’s favorite, so I usually double the recipe to make enough to last a while.
My most favorite contribution to parties and get-togethers! My mom used to make pickle wraps for when her-side-of-the-family would come over to our house at Christmas. If you’ve never had a pickle wrap, I feel very sorry for you. This dip is basically chopped up pickle wraps, and although it’s not quite as good as real pickle wraps, it is a great and tasty time-saving substitute that everyone seems to enjoy.
