Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
(Quick note: I believe everyone tweaking and then sharing enhances this website far beyond just rating the original recipe. I appreciate the "made exactly as directed- turned out ____", but crave the notations of changes/substitutes so I can learn from other's expertise/mistakes. All of my 1st attempts turn out perfect for me and my family as a result!) I used 1 box Nilla Wafers, and changed the recipe to 37 servings to adjust for only having 2 1/2c of wafers. I followed dry ingredients exactly, except 2c walnuts. I used 1/4 cup amaretto and 1/4 cup Bacardi silver. I did not have corn syrup, so made some super-thick simple syrup with 1/4 cup water and 1 cup granulated sugar. (Microwaved the water for 45 secs, stirred in sugar 1/4c at a time, nuked for 30 secs, stirred, nuked again, stirred. This crystalizes as it cools so I don't think I would recommend this substitute.) I added it as the 2 T + 1 tsp and stirerd it all together. The result seemed very dry and crumbly (and kind of smelled like a diaper?!) and I panicked that it wouldn't form balls. Not only did I get 52 rum balls, but they were not sticky AT ALL, and I used my cookie scoop to measure how much to smush each time. Halfway through, I started to panick again (as I noticed sugar crystals on my cookies), thinking as they sit, they might dry out and crumble apart. Fingers crossed!! (Oh, and as to the booziness: they have a nice kick freshly made!)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I do not like choc chip cookies, I don't know why. So I didn't even give the original recipe a chance- I changed a couple of things to better suit my tastes and BOY OH BOY! I simply swapped chocolate pudding mix for vanilla pudding mix and green mint chips for semisweet chocolate chips. I have found the cookie love of my life and I have yet to find a person young or old, male or female who does not appreciate my version! Even a few who claimed, "I don't do mint chocolate anything. I don't like that combo." Guess who ate 'em up!
