Here's what PinkDreams sent me.  Some yummy cinnamon cookies, perfect homemade soft Oreos (chocolate cookies with vanilla frosting in the middle), a beautiful green bracelet, and a box of the most precious 3D wooden froggie stickers ever.  Thanks!!
(Sorry, the photos are blurry - I must have been tired!)

Great stuff. Oreos must be popular right now. I have been playing with Oreos a lot lately. I made Oreo brownies today!

susief00 -- I'm glad you liked everything!  The key chain is sea glass, like they sell for flower arrangements or fish tanks.  It can be useful stuff!  Green is my favorite color, too, so I had plenty of supplies to work with for this swap.  ;-)

The indecisive cookies actually have a vaguely amusing history.  They started out as a recipe for peanut butter oatmeal cookies, but since I used chunky peanut butter I replaced the chopped peanuts with chocolate chips.  Those were my most popular cookies for a long time, until one night I started to brag about how they contained everything you could want in a cookie.  Of course one of my friends started listing other things to include, most of them utterly ridiculous.  But when he sad banana my eyes lit up and I realized that the cookies could really use one last ingredient.... and I think that the banana has made all the difference.  :-)  I'd be happy to send the recipe to anyone who'd like it.

nikimac -- the homemade oreos look fabulous!

Oh sea glass! That is cool! I really did love my whole package! Thanks again...you did a great swap grimmscreed  Smiley

I'm really glad you liked your package too...I was nervous about it....lol.

I don't know what the cookies tasted like before the banana but I agree that it makes the cookie. They are really good! My niece likes them too...though I haven't told her yet about the banana...you know kids...it always tastes better if they don't know it's good for them...haha! Sadly I'm getting ready to eat the last one  Shocked

Might have to make me another batch this weekend  Smiley

PinkDreams hasn't been on in a while, so I'm not sure if she's posting photos of what I sent her.  I didn't take photos of everything unfortunately, but I got what I was most proud of.  I sent her chocolate-dipped peanut butter Oreos (with green icing/sprinkles/candies) and cinnamon/cocoa/walnut-coated divinity shaped like potatoes (I wrapped them in foil to look like little baked potatoes).  Then I painted over a little Halloween cauldron and bought a bunch of gold coin chocolates to make a little leprechaun treasure for her.  And I made a clover charm out of the liquid resin stuff I love.  Sorry I don't have more photos, but here are the "potatoes."

Oh I wish we could see pictures of everything you sent...but PinkDreams might get a chance to put some up for us soon.

Those potato shaped treats are so brilliant I don't even have words!!! I love them!!! Such a perfect St. Paddy's day sweet!!! Great job!! They look so much like potatos and with the foil....it's just awesome! (ok...so apparently I did have the words, lol)
