Reynolds Meal Magic with Parchment Paper 
Apr. 2, 2014 8:30 pm 
If you know me then you know that I love baking! I was excited when I looked through the
Reynolds Kitchen Recipe Collection on and found a couple of recipes to make.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Reynolds Kitchens. I received a sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
First, let me confess that my daughter and I made this recipe 4-5 times already. It is a simple yet tasty snack that can be made in a matter of minutes. Like most of you, I enjoy homemade recipes but not washing extra dishes, especially those that do not fit in the dishwasher. The parchment paper comes in handy because it makes the clean up of this recipe easy. Once the chocolate dries, transfer the popcorn mixture to a serving dish and save yourself the clean up of a baking sheet.
You can find the recipe here:
I also made Karen's Rolled Sugar Cookies from the Reynolds Kitchen recipe collection on I opted to add M&M's to the recipe instead of rolling them out. I love M&M's in sugar cookies! I stirred the candies in then transferred to a sheet of parchment paper to be refrigerated. I love wrapping cookie dough in parchment paper because it doesn't stick and I can scoop the dough straight from the sheet!
For some reason I never thought to use parchment paper for roasting one of our favorites snacks. We love asparagus drizzled with olive oil, fresh garlic, and parmesan cheese. I can not clean the baking sheet until it cools and by then it becomes discolored and crusted.  Parchment paper is literally saving my baking sheets! I honestly wished I started using parchment paper sooner. I am left with wondering "what else am I missing?"
I went on to make Classic Peanut Butter Cookies using parchment paper and the cookies baked beautifully and I did not have any baking sheets to clean afterwards.  I am officially sold.

I used the cookies to create Triple Peanut Butter S'Mores  I warmed the cookies, marshmallow, and peanut butter cup on parchment paper since marshmallow is notorious for sticking to fingers and plates.
 I created some wholesome granola bars using natural peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey as a base. After I cook the mixture and stir in oats and sea salt I transfer to a sheet of Reynolds parchment paper. I shaped the mixture by hand by pressing them out into a rectangle. Once they cool I cut them into bars. Then I had an "Aha! Moment" and decided to reuse the parchment I pressed them out on by cutting it into strips to wrap the bars in. I tied the paper on with a piece of bakers twine.
