Guest Post: Laura from Just For Love

I have the fabulous Laura here today. She blogs over at Just For Love and she is so sweet!
You'll love her and she has a yummy recipe to share today.
I will let Laura take it from here!



Hello Everyone!

My name is Laura and I blog over at Just For Love. It's my very own little corner of blogland where I get to blend all of my different interests into one spot. I love sharing recipes, tutorials, home decor tips, re-dos, and lots of other neat things I come across along the way. One of my greatest passions is raising funds and awareness for poor and underprivileged people in third world countries. Giving is one of the greatest feelings in the world!


I can't tell you how excited I am to be doing a guest post for Allison! Her and I met a couple months back through our blogs, and I have enjoyed watching A Glimpse Inside grow ever since. Allison is super talented and I love her blog : ) She is always teaching me new things and inspiring me.


Since we're just about to finish up the holiday season, I thought I would share my peppermint patty recipe with you all. I like to make it around Christmas time, but you can make it anytime of the year.


Its super simple and absolutely delicious!


Super Easy Peppermint Patties



Ingredients:


~ 1 box of Low Salt Ritz crackers

~ 1 jar of Marshmallow Fluff

~ 1 jar of Nutella

~ 2 1/2 teaspoons mint extract

~ 2 bags of Hershey's dark chocolate chips

(you may use any chocolate you like, I prefer Hershey's dark)

~ green crystal
sprinkles




Directions:


~ Mix 2 1/2 teaspoons mint extract into the entire jar of nutella.


~ Cover one side
of the Ritz crackers with the peppermint nutella mitxture (cover as many crackers as you want, depending on how many cookies you plan to make).



~ Cover the same amount of crackers with the marshmallow fluff.


~ Sandwich both crackers together to form little patties.



~ Next, place the patties in the freezer for at least 20 minutes to set (otherwise the marshmallow fluff will ooze out everywhere whenever you dip them into the warm chocolate).


~ Slowly melt the Hershey's dark chocolate chips in the microwave. If you prefer using a double boiler, that is fine too.


~ Dip all of the cookies. Garnish with green crystal sprinkles while the chocolate is still warm.



~ Pop the cookies back into the freezer for another 20 minutes to harden.


Once the cookies are done chilling, you may serve them right away. I'm warning you...you better make a bunch because these guys don't stick around long.


They're
the hit of every party!



I hope you and your family enjoy this simple recipe as much as mine does.


With LOVE,





Thanks so much for guest posting here today Laura!

Everyone, go stop by Laura's blog and give her some love! :)

  2. I love this! I have done peanut butter ritz crackers dunked in chocolate, but never like this before. I bet I could omit the mint for my non-loving mint daughter & they would still be divine!
