Recipe type: Candy
Cuisine: American
Serves: 36
Ingredients
  • 2 cups refirgerated chocolate chip cookie dough (about 15 oz)
  • ½ cup oats (old fashioned or quick oats are fine)
  • 1 cup mini M&M's + more for topping
  • 1 cup Reese's peanut butter chips
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 12 oz bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F (for a glass pan), 325F (for a dark pan).
  2. Line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, crumble up the cookie dough and stir in oats, one cup M&Ms and peanut butter chips. Mix until combined.
  4. Press the dough evenly into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. While dough is baking, combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in a microwave safe container. Heat on high heat for 30 seconds, stir. Repeat until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract.
  7. Pour the fudge mixture over the partially baked crust and carefully spread. The dough is not fully baked so make sure to evenly pour the fudge to start with.
  8. Sprinkle with additional mini M&Ms, the amount is up to you. I did about 1 cup.
  9. Return to the oven and bake for another 15 to 18 minutes or just until the edges and center begin to crack.
  10. Let bars cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into bars. I like to refrigerate my bars for a good hour so the fudge is nice and set up.

Pioneer Potato Candy

Pioneer Potato Candy

Pioneer Potato Candy

Years ago when the kids were still in school, my daughter came home with this recipe. It was from another mother who did as much holiday cooking and baking as I did. They’re so good, that I used to make them every year. Now, I make them for gifts.

Divide the dough up and add different flavorings.

Serves: 96
Ingredients
  • 1 c. warm unseasoned mashed potatoes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 lbs. powdered sugar
  • 1 lb. chocolate coating or dipping chocolate
  • ⅔ c. ground salted peanuts or 1 c. shredded coconut
Instructions
  1. Combine potatoes, salt, and vanilla in a 4 quart bowl. Put sugar in potatoes, stirring in 1 cup at a time. Mixture will liquefy when first sugar is added, then begins to thicken. When it is as thick as dough, knead it even through all the sugar has not been added (likewise, add more sugar if needed). After kneading, cover with damp cloth; chill until small spoonfuls can be rolled into a ball. Shape in balls. Dip in melted chocolate, then roll in nuts or coconut. Makes 2 pounds.
  2. We like to divide into several bowls, putting a different flavor and color in each.
