I love this! I just had my street bake exchange the other day. There were 10 of us and it was so nice! Christmas music, we got to try everyone's baking and best of all, we got to visit, which is rare now that it is cold out.
I have another one on the 15th with the girls from my craft afternoon. Here is what I made:

Cracker Candy

35 saltine crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 - 16 oz package chocolate chips
white chocolate chips or toasted shaved almonds

Preheat oven to 375
Line a 13x9 cookie sheet with foil and spray with pam (or you can grease it). Lay your crackers out 5 down and then across until all are used in one layer.
In a saucepan, melt butter, add brown sugar and stir until sugar is melted and blended. Heat until bubbly and boil 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour over crackers and spread to cover. The crackers will float. Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over. Put back in oven for 3 minutes till chocolate chips melt. Remove from oven and spread over caramel mixture.
*If using nuts, sprinkle them over chocolate and refrigerate till firm.
*If using white chocolate, sprinkle over chocolate and let melt, (may need to heat a minute) Use a knife or skewer and marbelize. Refrigerate till firm.
Remove from fridge and peel off foil. Break into pieces. makes about 5 dozen.

YUM!

Minty Christmas Cookies

Give your family a new Christmas cookie tradition...with hint of mint!


What You Need:
2 bags M&M'S Brand Mint Chocolate Candies for the Holidays

]2 1/2 cups flour


1/3 cup cocoa powder


1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar


2 eggs
1 cup chopped pecan pieces

2 non-stick cookie sheets or parchment-lined cookie sheets

What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine the flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt in a bowl; set aside.
3. With the mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, until blended. Gradually stir in the flour mixture.
4. Fold in the pecans and all but 1 cup of the M&M'S Brand Mint Chocolate Candies for the Holidays.
5. Make the cookies with a tablespoon of dough in the cookie sheet. Add extra reserved M&M'S Brand Mint Chocolate Candies for the Holidays on top of each cookie before baking.
6. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Tip:
If your family likes their cookies extra minty, try adding a few more M&M'S Brand Mint Chocolate Candies to the mix!

Makes about 36 cookies
