Cashew Butterscotch

Raise your hand if you are ready to say goodbye to Summer!Now if your hand is up in the air, that’s okay because you can still make these with the other. They’re super easy and call for only four ingredients. Thanks to my friend KAnn for this recipe, which her family has been making for […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy Bars

I usually come home from vacation ready to hit the kitchen, but it’s just not happening this week. Maybe the 100 degree temperatures have something to do with it? I don’t know, but these days all I feel like making are no-bake treats, most of which involve cereal. Before we left for Chicago I was […]

Indoor S

This recipe is a real blast from the past, but I updated it a bit this morning while attempting to use up some Golden Grahams and marshmallows that were lying around. Instead of making a large 9×13 inch batch, I halved it and made the recipe in an 8 inch square pan. I also used […]

Happy Canada Day! We just got back and I miss it already. Ottawa and Montreal were great, and Toronto is next on the list; but for now, here’s a picture of a little souvenir I picked up in Montreal. These are OMGs, candies made with broken graham crackers, toffee bits, almonds and milk chocolate shaped […]

I try to update Cookie Madness on an (almost) daily basis, but last week was an exception. I made everything a week ahead so we could unplug and take a real vacation. Our destination? A little town in New York where Fuzz had been at summer camp for the past couple of weeks. But rather […]

Peppermint Cheesecake

If you spot the new limited edition Candy Cane Oreos, you may want to buy two bags — one for eating. and another for baking.  They taste much better than I imagined (like Girl Scout Thin Mints in Oreo form) and have so many potential uses in baked goods.  I couldn’t decide whether to chunk […]

Tracys Special Scotcheroos

Scotcheroos with Special K cereal

I was craving Scotcheroos last week, so I went to H.E.B., gathered most of the ingredients, then discovered that the store was completely out of Nestle butterscotch morsels. After being helped by a friendly employee who was sympathetic towards my predicament and offered several substitution ideas even though she’d never tasted Scotcheroos, I put all […]

peanut butter rice krispies treats

Given the hot weather, I’ve come to appreciate “no-bake” cookies more than ever and have been experimenting with new recipes. Since my favorite no-bakes always seem to involve Rice Krispies, I consulted with Katrina, an expert on the subject!  Between the two of us, we’ve made loads of different varieties (including Chipotle Rice Krispies Treats) […]
