Tis’ the season for all your favorite bake goods and more! I of course, have some holiday classics it wouldn’t just be Christmas without. But this year I wanted to expand upon our holiday menu and Nestle came to my rescue.
Typically, I go with the classics for Christmas. Chocolate chip cookies for Santa, Peanut Butter Blossoms for the hubby and an Ice box cake for all. This year though, I felt like it was time to go beyond the norm when it came to the dessert menu. After checking out some of Nestles amazing recipes for yummy holiday desserts like: Peanut Butter Sleigh Ride Bars, Cookie Ornament Cups, Chocolate Chip Cookie Sled, Mrs. Claus' Favorite Oatmeal Cookies, Peanut Butter Jollys, Jingle Sugar Cookie, "Cakey" Chocolate Jingle Bars, Jingle Bell Cheesecake and Marshmallow Snowmen.
I decided the Peanut Butter Sleigh Ride Bars would make the perfect addition to our holiday table – who doesn’t love peanut butter, chocolate and Butterfingers?!?
Before a dessert can reach our holiday table it must past the family taste test. And since this weekend was dedicated to celebrating the season, picking out a tree, decorating and more, it was also the perfect time for some baking with the kids.
After getting our tree set-up we took to the kitchen to make some Peanut Butter Sleigh Ride bars the perfect Christmas treat for entertaining or a gift!
What you need:
- 30 NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Jingles, unwrapped
- 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
- BEAT brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl untilcreamy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour and baking soda.
- Stir in Nestlé Jingles. - We opted to just press them in on-top
- PRESS dough into 9-inch-square baking pan, distributing Nestlé Jingles evenly.
- BAKE for 25 minutes or until golden and wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean.
- Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
NOTE: Try substituting NESTLÉ Milk Chocolate Jingles
Not only did we have a great time creating memories in the kitchen, but the “bars” were gone within minutes of them being cooled. I would say they were an instant hit! I love finding recipes that are creative, delicious and easy enough for the kids to make!
