Goboenomo's Baking Thread (First few posts)

Here are the green cookies I made using blue sugar instead of white.


Here is the basic recipe.
Code:
1 cup butter
3/4 sugar
3/4 brown sugar
2 eggs
1-3 tsp vanilla (i like vanilla :D)
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
I did it for fun. My buddy wants me to do black next. :P
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I made some watermelon flavoured gummy bears. Except they weren't bears. :P



Here is the recipe.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next is Peanut Butter Balls



Here is my second try on the peanut butter balls. I tried to make them look alot better this time. I found a way, and they look great.



Here is a closer view so you can see how great they look.



Here's the recipe.

Code:
1 ½ cups peanut butter, Skippy or equivalent, not natural peanut butter 
3/4 to 1 full box powdered sugar 
½ cup butter. softened 
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix peanut butter, butter and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended. 

Add the powdered sugar, a little at a time, blending with the mixer until all the sugar is mixed in. The dough will be slightly crumbly.

Form the dough into 1 - 1 1/2 inch size balls by rolling the dough between your hands. Set formed balls on a plate or cookie tray.

In a double boiler add: 

12 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips, Guitard is my favorite for its flavor 
2 Tbs. shortening

Heat the double boiler to the lowest boil you can achieve.
When the chips are melted, dip one peanut butter ball into the chocolate with tooth picks. Roll the ball in the chocolate until it is well covered.

Remove the peanut butter ball with tooth picks to cookie sheets lined with waxed paper.
My friends and teachers said they're better than Reeces.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now Macaroons



Here is my try on a second (double) batch.




Recipe

Code:
 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
3 squares (3 ounces) unsweetened chocolate
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Truffles coated with coconut and confectioners sugar.



Here is my second try on the truffles. This time I did a batch of white chocolate, and a batch of milk chocolate which are covered by red sugar, green sugar, confectionary sugar, and unsweetened cocoa.



Here they are a little closer up. White chocolate is on the left, and milk on the right.

I just made these Green Milk Chocolate Christmas Trees.




All that had to be done for these was, melt chocolate, pour in the mold, put in the stick, and spread the chocolate over with a knife. Let cool in the fridge for 10-15 minutes, take out of mold, and wrap as you please.

Is this a repeated thread Gobo? I know you've already posted the green sugar cookies and the peanutbutter balls.

I just finished baking.
I made the same 3 things I did not long ago. The truffles, the macaroons, and the peanut butter balls.
The peanut butter balls I did the same but they look alot better.
Same with the macaroon.
For the truffles I tried a white and a milk chocolate batch which I dusted with green sugar, red sugar, icing sugar, and cocoa.
I haven't tasted any yet. But I will tomorrow. I'll also post the new pictures.
Oh! I also made green chocolate lollipops.

Alright! We baked last night! We pretty much did the 3 things I did the other day over again, except better. We also did chocolate christmas trees. Please read the first 2 posts and give me some feedback. Hope you like it.

Baking again on Thursday with my girlfriend and her mom, and then going home to bake with my mom again.

I'm impressed, Goboenomo!! You are certainly enthusiastic about baking and doing a great job! Everything in your photos looks so good -- okay, with the exception of those green cookies. I think you should make a pitch to the Foodnetwork channel. They do not have any cooking shows with young hosts/hostesses. A show with a young person like yourself could encourage others to express themselves through cooking. I think it is wonderful that you have such an interest and talent for baking. Have you thought about writing a cookbook? Remember: The world is your oyster, eat it up!!! Go for it, Gobo!!

Thanks!

Is there somewhere I can submit to a food network site? I'd like to try that for sure.

I made a cookbook in grade 10, but it was just recipes I got from other sites.
None of these recipes are really mine. I changed the cookies a little bit, and added blue sugar, and the truffles I just changed the chocolate.
