Did you know that you can cut a sweet tooth attack by biting into a sour dill pickle?

But for me, if you give me the choice, I would bake those little Insanity bars, and hide under the stairs, crunching away my temptation…

Put 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar in a pan, bring to a hard boil and keep it for 3 min.

Line a very well greased square pan with crackers (bran, no salted top).

Pour the hot mix over and bake for 5 minutes at 375F.

Remove from the oven, spray chocolate chip pieces, coconut and walnut over the top and put it back in the oven until the chocolate is melted (you can put more stuff on top, just use your imagination).

Let it cool a bit; remove from the pan by using a sharp knife. Deposit on a cutting board and cut into pieces.

Keep in an airtight container or in your pocket!

With all those cookies around your kitchen, right before Christmas time, why not do a :

Cookie Exchange

The rules are simple:bake a dozen cookies for each person who is invited to attend. Easy, simple!

You bake a dozen for each of them, gather one dozen in one container, labeled with the recipe of the cookie and up you go.

The evening of the cookie exchange, you bring your containers full of cookies and trade them for exactly the same amount of containers that you came with.

So let say : you have invited 10 persons to your cookie exchange. You have previously gone to the dollar store, got 10 containers or 10 bags big enough to hold one dozen of cookies. Your 10 containers contain all the same kind of cookie.

The evening of the cookie exchange, you bring out your 10 containers of cookies and trade them for exactly the same amount of containers you came with.

Each participant will end up with, in this case, 10 different kinds of one dozen cookies with the recipes attached to them.

Cookies keep very well in a freezer for up to 6 months.

Marvelous idea to fill your baking needs, for company coming during Christmas time. And as a bonus, you will also get the recipes for each one of them!
