Party in Your PJs #45

Welcome back to Party in Your PJs.

While I am not feeling 100% yet....I am definitely feeling much better.  Mom's aren't supposed to get sick...but I did...and stayed in bed for 2 days, my boys pampered me, keeping me feed and hydrated, so by Wednesday night...I was feeling almost human again.  Being sick sucks!

So....I am ready to party this week...hit me with some fun, cute and creative posts....I need inspiration!

Mint M&M Brownie Cookies

Mint and Chocolate are a combination made in heaven.  With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I found my self wanting a quick and easy treat to celebrate the day.  These Mint M&M Brownie Cookies meet all the requirements, and taste YUMMY!

Mint M&M Brownie Cookies

These taste just like a brownie, but in cookie form, and have a pop of mint that offer and unexpected pop of mint in your mouth.

Using a brownie mix, these cookies come together quickly, and are perfect for parties or just a fun after dinner treat.

Mint M&M Brownie Cookies

I made these on the bigger side of my normal cookies, and rather then stirring in the M&Ms, I chose to place them on top of the dough before baking them.  This way, they look pretty, and you get a pop of mint in each bite!

Mint M&M Brownie Cookies

Try these cookies soon, they have the classic brownie taste, with the classic brownie "crackle" top, crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside...with the wonderful minty chocolate flavor!

*a word of advice...DO NOT OVERBAKE THESE....bake for only 12-13 minutes then pull them from the over, letting them cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing them to a cooling rack to cool completely*
Mint M&M Brownie Cookies



Ingredients
  • 1 (19.5 oz) Family Size Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 oil
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Package (8 oz) Mint M&Ms
Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with silpat, parchment or spay with nonstick cookie spray. In a large mixing bowl combine brownie mix, flour, oil, water and eggs. Gently stir until all are combined, but do not over mix. Drop by rounded tablespoons (I used a large cookie scoop) on to baking sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between cookies. Carefully place M&M on top of unbaked cookies, I used 4-6 per cookie. Bake for 12-13 minutes, resist the urge to bake more! Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Party in Your PJs #43

Welcome back to Party in Your PJs.

 Who is ready for Spring?  We got snow here Sunday night, and I did not want to test the road on the drive to work, so I stayed home on Monday.  I am so thankful that I have understanding Bosses, they let us use our own judgement in Winter Weather, and never hold it against us.  I am blessed for sure.  Today...it was back to work, and now I am in my PJs and ready to party

Simply Sweet Stencils Giveaway


*Giveaway is now closed, thank you to all who entered*

Congratulations, Marci, You are the winner!






I am finally getting back into decoration cookies.  If you have followed me in my cookie journey, you know I love simple cookies.  I find it a personal challenge to create beautiful cookies, simple.

One of my recent favorite ways to do that is using stencils on my cookies.  Thankfully, I have found a wonderful source for stencils.

Simply Sweet Stencils is the Etsy shop created by Melissa of Simply Sweets by Honeybee.  The shop is full wonderfully created stencils that help me create simple yet beautiful cookies.

According to the shop:

My Stencils are made from a food grade plastic that is washable & reusable.  I've designed the stencils with cookies in mind but they can be used for your craft projects as well.  Stencils measure 5.5" x 5.5".  Designs are based on an average cookies size of 3".

Just look at a few of the fun designs offered by Simply Sweet Stencils!








I was able to use the Fancy Scroll Heart Stencil for Valentine's Day cookies, and love how easy they were to use and how I was able to make BEAUTIFUL cookies, simply!

Aren't they beautiful?  Well, you can try these stencils for yourself!  Melissa has generously offered one lucky reader four Stencils, of their choice!

That is right, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me the last good movie you saw. Make sure you leave an email address so we can contact the winner! The giveaway is open until Monday February 23rd at 7 am CST.  One entry per person. US residents only

*This is sponsored by Simply Sweet Stencils.  I received nothing for hosting it, they are just products that I love and use.*
