NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER MINI CHEESECAKE
I made these for the family and everyone loved them. I am not a fan of semisweet chocolate so I think next time I will use milk chocolate. I also used Heath toffee bits. I kept them in the freezer until serving time and peeled off the wrapper right before s...

Strawberry Cookies With White Chocolate Chunks
Five stars when using 8 ounces of cream cheese instead of the 3 ounces noted in the recipe. Because I did not have a cookie press and wanted to do something a little different (other than simply making drop cookies), I chilled the dough for about 1 hour and...
