Default Snack/Treat Ideas

Hello fellow foodies!

I have a request...

I'm running for the Class President for my professional program at university on Tues. I am running against another young, fabulous woman and she told me she was going to bring cupcakes for everyone on Tues. Cupcakes are pretty much the best thing one could bring to something like this (pizza would be a hassle because it's a lab setting and we're not aloud to eat around lab equipment and yadda yadda)...

So, what I'm asking is....what are your ideas for something to bring? I was thinking assorted Halloween candy, but I think that's copping out lol!

hmmmm beef jerky?


...if they have cupcakes, cookies would be a nice counter treat, or the candy you mentioned, just have more than one bowl, to make it appear liek you have more.

let me get some sleep but I have a kick butt choc chip cookie recipe that you can substitute choc chips for m&m's in its buttery light and ooooh so moorish I am thinking that no matter how nice the cupcakes are we are all big kids at heart so m&m's cookies would trump the cupcakes I mean if you wanted to get fancy you could choc dip the bottoms but I would go with something like that
or you could go the whole bribary route and do up little goodie bags lol and add in some vote for me cause I stand for blah blah blah stuff in them as well

huggles and goodluck

Ohhhh, M&M cookies...I hadn't thought about that!!! If I did bake something....it would be fantastic because I only need a recipe that supplies at least 25 cookies or so. The M&M cookies would tie in the baked goodies PLUS the candy. I like!

And thank ya, Mishty (makes the Mishty face when she typed it).

okies well will give you what you need

but dont know quantities off hand but I would make sure to have at least 2-3 sticks of butter

brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, and of course M&M's a large pack should be pleanty although I have been known to cram in two packs large packs of minis mind you you may get larger packs than we do I am talking about 375g's

when I get up later will grab the book and type out the rest for you

hugs

oh and self raising flour I think or is it plain eep one of those am sure I usually use self raising though

Yes, I agree with Mishty and SpiritAngel.. a baked good like cookies or peanut butter bars, or even a fudgy brownie.

Now if you could make your goodie in the shape or form of the topic of your program would work too.

I would actually suggest the M&M cookies because they would actually be easier and "cleaner" to eat in the lab. And if you state that you thought of this *specifically* and wanted to make it easier for them, perhaps this would add to their enjoyment.

Think about it cupcakes, you have to peel the wrapper, lick the frosting, watch out for crumbs. (great, now I want cookies AND cupcakes.)

I never met anyone who didn't like Rice Krispie Treats, they're stupid easy to make and if you were feeling creative you could use cookie cutters to make them in relevant shapes.

ok so this recipe comes from a book called Cooking with Kurma (and slightly adjusted by me I mean if you have a tablespoon of yoghurt or buttermilk by all means add it but I never have and they are still awesome)

3/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups self raising flour

the original recipe has 3/4 cup of chopped peacans
and 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened carob chips (or choc chips)

however use M&M's instead of the nuts and choc chips



pre heat oven to 180 degrees C or 355 degrees F

cream your butter and sugar in a bowl ( I add in about half a teaspoon of vanilla extract in this part) till light and fluffy

mix through your nuts and choc chips or M&M's (this allows for even distrabution but mix with a wooden spoon rather than mix master or you will break all your m&m's to bits)

mix in your s/r flour (you may need to get your hands in there for the last little bit to make sure the flour is well mixed in)

form into 24 (or you could make a smidge smaller or big giant ones depending on your purpose) balls, flatten into patties and place slighly appart on a baking tray, bake for 15-20mins until the cookies are lightly browned, I always do mine on greaseproof paper or glad bake you could use a silacone cookie sheet if you had one of those

and viola the yummiest buttery light cookies

OH NO, I'M NOT MAKING TWO STOPS.

Anyway, how'd the m&m cookies go over? Can we call your recipe a kingmaker?

I was gonna say this one. You could even use some colored jimmies on top to make them festive, make some with chocolate drizzles, whatever.

And the ingredients aren't that expensive!
