Here's my cookies from mxer145.  I got cashew nut brittle and some yummy meringue chocolate chip cookies.  She also sent this santa tin.  Thanks so much!   Kiss

Received from brielauren! And O...M...G... She outdid me, and then some!!!  Thanks brielauren!!!
Here's everything together:

She made me FOUR different kinds of treats. She said she was having swap anxiety, so she sent extra treats, but she did NOT have anything to worry about!
On the left is Almond Chocolate Biscotti, Pumpkin Pie Cookies, Magic Cookie Bars (half WITH coconut, half without!) And in the front there is a genius little idea...cakes in a jar....Snickerdoodl e Cake!

Here's the close up of the magic cookie bars. So delish!!! And everything was packaged SO perfectly.

The extras!! I think she stalked me.  Wink  This is such a cute headband, reversible too. Love the prints she used. And for the baby boy she sent a perfect bib, with a snap on the bottom to hold a teething ring!!! They are both made SO well, I'm impressed!!!

And last but not least, beautiful recipe cards, with recipes of everything she made, plus one of her own original recipes for Hot Cocoa Cupcakes (must make these) and a bunch of blank cards to add my own recipes in the future! All on a little ring to keep them all together!

My hubby was here when I opened the package, and he insisted on trying a little bit of everything, and after the first bite (magic cookie bar) he said, "These are awesome!" Then the next bite (pumpkin) he said, "Wow, she's 2 for 2!" After the Biscotti, "3 for 3!" Then after the cupcake, he said, "Is she single?" Me: "uh, no, and neither are you."  Him: "Are you sure? Do you think she'd want to be a sister wife?"  Me: "I think you've been watching too much Big Love."

So...I guess its safe to say that it was all amazing. And no, we aren't polygamists in any sense of the word, but I guess he was willing to convert if it meant having a 'sister wife' who could bake like that!!!  Wink  My very favorite are probably the pumpkin cookies, they have just tons of flavor, and his are the biscotti. He said he's never really had biscotti before, and was surprised he liked it so much!!

Anyway, sorry for the long post, but it was all so very delicious and thoughtful, you make me want to step up my swap packages and focus on every last detail, like you did!!!

Howdy! I just joined the swap to partner with BhamBaby. I am a smidge intimidated by the packages i am seeing but can't wait to try some new recipes. First off, i'm going to make some of the lime fudge!

Eek! Just realized I forgot to post my brigadeiro recipe! oops! Let me know if you have any questions...it took me a lot of practice to make these without burning them, so keep trying! The end result is sooooo worth it!

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon butter
Cocoa Powder to taste (i usually don't measure, but the more cocoa powder, the less sweet they will be)
Chocolate sprinkles

Combine cocoa powder, butter, condensed milk in a sauce pan, stirring constantly under low heat.
Stir until mixture no longer sticks to pan. (It can burn very easily so be careful!)
Pour mixture into a bowl and allow to cool completely (you can put it in the fridge if you want, but not necessary).
Put some butter on your hands and start rolling!

I had such a nice time meeting with Calabaza this afternoon.  Her cookies are fantastic.  I ended up just making run-of-the-mill sugar cookies, but she gave me tea cookies, spice cookies, and sugar cookies.  She crafted me an amazing (and sturdy!) kitchen towel, and bought me 4 of my favorite gel pens!  Thank you so much!

Nikimac's sugar cookies are darn good! I had a great time chatting with her. She decorated the tin and gave me a mix (with super neat cookie cutter!) and a snow globe with flamingos. I love flamingos!





Thanks a bunch, nikimac!
