Almond bark and easy cookies

Almond bark and easy cookies
I don't know about you but we ended up with four tins of butter cookies lately and my family isn't really enthusiastic about plain cookies though I love them myself I knew it would take a long time to eat those things by myself. So.... digging through the shelves I can up with some different ideas and they were gone in no time.
Some great additions to plain cookies can include things like almond bark, chocolate, marshmallows, icing, nuts, sprinkles, peanut butter and so much more. All you need is a little imagination and time. Before you know it you'll have a plate of quickly disappearing delights.

Cookie number one was very simple. Just melt almond bark as directed and dip the cookies into it. Set on a tray to cool and they are tasty that way or you can sprinkle them with various toppings. I've been known to use nuts, sprinkles, toffee bits, and other crushed candies. You'd be surprised at how good butter cookies dipped in the white almond bark and sprinkled with crushed peppermint candies can be!

Cookie number two was just as simple except it included two cookies with peanut butter between them.. Then dipped and rolled in the almond bark.

Now you can use melted chocolate if you want to. I just think that the almond bark is very simple to use for quick fixes.

If you want a crispy coated cookie just quickly stir in some rice crispy cereal and roll the cookies in that. It is messier but still good to eat and the kids love them.

If you want to dress up other cookies such as chocolate chip, lemon cream, macadamia or chocolate sandwich cookies you can roll them into the almond bark of your choice and sprinkle them with various toppings.

For parties I never serve peanut butter or cookies with nuts without making sure they are easily recognized as containing nuts due to allergies. Nuts sprinkled on top will let everybody know that there are nuts or peanut butter in those cookies. A good idea if you don't know if someone might have a nut allergy that will be attending your event.

Another trick I like is to lightly toast a marshmallow on a fork.. press it between two cookies and then roll that in chocolate or almond bark. These are really tasty.

Almond bark is fantastic poured over a mixture of broken pretzel pieces and cereal. Mix quickly and drop by spoonfuls onto buttered tray. Very good! I hope you try some of these ideas and if you have any favorites you'd like to share feel free to send them in and we'll share them.
