My friend Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO has done it again.  Chocolate and Peanut Butter recipes are my favorite (a marriage made in heaven) and these decadent chocolate glazed peanut butter cheesecake brownie bars are truly divine.

Danielle provides her delicious homemade brownie recipe below, however, you can also use your favorite packaged mix as a time saver!

Chocolate Toffee Matzah – SO GOOD!

Thanks to Oprah’s magazine this  scrumptious Chocolate Toffee Matzah is a staple for the holidays.  It can also be made with saltines if you don’t have access to matzah.  Her recipe calls for unsalted matzah but I have made it with lightly salted matzah and just left out the salt called for in the recipe.

Easy Snickerdoodles (as well as a Traditional Recipe)

In my quest for the best Snickerdoodle cookie it was the recipe from the Milk & Cookies Cookbook by Tina Casaceli that was the clear winner! Great taste and great texture. (Everything in this bakery owner’s cookbook has been stellar!).

The third time I made them I was in a hurry and decided to forgo the roll of the cookie balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture and instead included the mixture in the recipe instead; eliminating that last step. Well, I also streamlined a lot of the recipe.  I’ll be darned if it wasn’t still a GREAT cookie!

So below I give you two choices: the traditional Snickerdoodle recipe and my easy Snickerdoodles!

Okay – now for my EASY version!
