Quick and Easy Treats?

So I have two quick and easy recipes to share for those who are looking for something to make for the holiday last minute ;)

Chocolate Fudge

1 8 ounce package cream cheese
3 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 square semi sweet baking chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add the vanilla and beat. Add the melted chocolate. Pour into a square pan and stick in the fridge for several hours. Slice up your fudge and eat. This is a soft fudge recipe



Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Inspired by this recipe.
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Peanut-Butter-Cup-Cookies/Detail.aspx

2 packages Pillsbury simple peanut butter cookies
Mini Reeces Peanut Butter Cups
Christmas sprinkles

Take the peanut butter cookie and rip in half. Roll each half into balls.
Take the ball of cookie dough and place in a mini muffin tin, ungreased.
Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 8 minutes
Take out and immediately press an unwrapped PB cup into the center.
Leave them in the pan on the counter
When the PB cups look melty, add your Christmasty sprinkles
Let these cool completely!
I stuck my mini muffin tins in the fridge before popping the cookies out.

This will make 48 cookies because we are pulling each cookie apart doubling the number of cookies. Enjoy!



Christmas Trees

I bought these Christmas tree molds on sale at Michaels after Christmas
I used sprinkles, white chocolate candy coating and pretzel rods
They were super easy and my nieces and nephews enjoyed them
