Ritz Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cookies


I Started making these Ritz Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cookies several years back. I only make them for Christmas because they are like some serious crack, VERY ADDICTING!  Once you bring these to a party you will be asked for the recipe right away, feel free to tell your friends how to find my blog, http://www.natembry.com 🙂

24 cookies

1⁄2 cup marshmallow cream
1⁄2 cup peanut butter
48 Ritz crackers
1 1⁄4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted ( you could also try white chocolate chips as well) 


Spread about 1 teaspoon peanut butter on 24 of the Ritz crackers.
Spread 1 teaspoon Marshmallow Creme on remaining crackers.
Sandwich crackers together, using one peanut butter and one marshmallow, then dip in melted chocolate or white chocolate (almond bark)
Set crackers on waxed paper and let stand until chocolate sets. Store in air-tight container for up to one week.

I am sure these Ritz Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cookies will be a BIG hit at your Christmas (or any other Holiday) party!

Easy Cream Cheese Cherry Crescent Bake


1 tube crescent rolls

1 block of cream cheese

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 large can cherry pie filling

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup sugar in the raw


Unroll and lightly press four of the crescent rolls into the bottom of an 8×8 inch greased pan. The bottom of the pan should be lined with crescent roll dough.

With a mixer, beat together sugar, cream cheese and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread it on top of the crescent rolls in the pan. Pour and spread the pie filling on top of the cream cheese layer.

Spread the last four crescent roll pieces on top of the cherry filling. Stretch it out and seal the seams to make a nice top crust. Pour the melted butter on top of the crust and sprinkle the raw sugar on top of the butter.

Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.




These Soft Snickerdoodle cookies are my husbands favorite cookies. Although the process seems a little daunting, you have to chill the dough, you HAVE to chill the cookie sheets also, BUT they are worth the effort. They come out soft and perfect every time! So sometimes it pays not to be a lazy cook, which honestly I am most of the time! ENJOY!

Chill dough, and chill an ungreased cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge.
Meanwhile, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, and 3 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
Scoop 1 inch globs of dough into the sugar/ cinnamon mixture.
Coat by gently rolling balls of dough in the sugar mixture.

Hello Dolly Bars

Hello Dolly Bars

Remember Hello Dolly bars (aka) 7 layer bars (aka) magic cookie bars? WOW so many names but just as they say about the rose….. by any name would smell and in this case taste just as sweet!!!
As easy to make as rice crispy treats and maybe about ten times as good. I’m pretty sure one of them has as many calories as…… Ok, let’s make a deal we won’t worry about that and say it’s a “Guilty pleasure” That’s oh- so- good.

So enjoy! Oh…. Don’t forget the milk!!!


2 cups ground graham crackers (approx. 2 packages out of a 3 package box)
1 box family style fudge brownie mix
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped nuts (pick your favorite. I like pecans.)
1 package chocolate chips
1 package sweetened flaked coconut
14-15 ounces sweetened condensed milk

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix brownie mix with graham cracker crumbs.
Melt butter and pour on the bottom of your pan. (I used a 11×15 pan but the smaller pan the thicker the bars)
Add the brownie/graham mix and stir to moisten.
Press the mixture into pan firmly.
Top the crust with the coconut.
Then with chocolate chips.
Then with butterscotch chips.
Then with nuts (I used pecans)
Drizzle evenly and generously with condensed milk.
Bake 25-30 minutes until the milk is becoming golden brown, but before the chips completely melt.
Important: Cool COMPLETELY before cutting!
