Valentine Thin Mints

Valentine’s is one of my favorite holidays! My husband loves thin mints so I played around with an old family recipe from his side. These mints only have 4 ingredients and taste amazing!!!! My husband loves them best frozen. I like them best when they are room temperature. Either way… these mints are perfect for your Valentine!


Step 1:
8 oz of Chocolate Almond Bark
1/2 teaspoon of Mint Extract

Step 2:
8 oz of White Chocolate Almond Bark
1/2 teaspoon of Mint Extract
6 to 10 drops of Red Food Coloring

Step 3:
8 oz of Chocolate Almond Bark
1/2 teaspoon of Mint Extract

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Melt the Chocolate from step 1 in the microwave. After it is melted stir in the Mint Extract. Pour onto Lined Cookie Sheet and spread the best you can. It will be a very thin layer.

Stick in the freezer for 2 to 4 minutes or just until it is hardened (not frozen)

Melt the White Chocolate from step 2 in the microwave. After it is melted add your mint and food coloring and mix well. Pour onto the cookie sheet and again spread the best you can.

Stick in the freezer again for 2 to 4 minutes until hardened (not frozen)

Next Melt the Chocolate from step 3 in the microwave. After it is completely melted, add your mint and stir together. Pour onto the cookie sheet and spread the best you can.

Cool in freezer until firm. Take out of freezer and score top  into 1 inch squares with knife, cutting almost through all 3 layers. Stick back in the freezer until completely hard and frozen.

Lift them off the wax paper and the squares will break apart.

Cherry Cheesecake Cookies Recipe

Cherry Cheesecake Cookies Recipe Six Sisters Stuff
Cheesecake lovers unite!!
For those of you who have no control when it comes to cheesecake (like me),
I give you bite-sized cheesecakes in the form of a cookie.
The cheesecake cookie dough is absolutely divine (I may or may not have eaten it by the spoonful), then you roll the yummy dough in crushed graham crackers and top it off with sweet cherries . . . basically heaven.
You are welcome. :)

Serves: 30

Cheesecake in the form of a cookie?! Brilliant! These cookies have been winners in two different cookie contests – not only are they cute to look at, but taste absolutely amazing. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without them!
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 5 whole graham crackers)
  • 1 (20 oz) can cherry pie filling

  1. In a medium bowl, cream butter, cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla, lemon zest and salt until fluffy. Gradually mix in powdered sugar, then the flour to make stiff dough. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for about 2 hours.
  2. Remove from fridge and preheat oven to 325 degrees. Shape dough into small one inch balls.
  3. Beat egg white until foamy. Dip balls in egg white then roll in graham cracker crumbs. Arrange cookie dough balls about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet and make a depression in the middle of each cookie with your thumb.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cookies begin to brown on the bottoms. Remove cookies from baking sheet and let cool. Fill depression with a teaspoon of pie filling (or as much as you can fit on each cookie).

Slow Cooker Crazy Nachos

Last week I was in the mood for nachos. I had not had any for such a long time and I wanted to make a more adult-version of nachos. I found a recipe from Martha Stewart and made it my own (and much easier). My kids and husband loved it! Best nachos I have had in a long time!
Slow Cooker Crazy Nachos


4 chicken breasts
1 cup of salsa
Crispy Tortilla Chips
2 1/2 cups shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
2/3 cup thinly sliced banana peppers
1 can of black beans
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
2 Tablespoons of green onions, chopped
Your favorite Salsa for serving


Place chicken breasts on the bottom of your slow cooker and pour 1 cup of salsa on top. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours.

When your chicken is done in the crock pot – Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Layer half of the chips, chicken, cheese, beans and banana peppers in a 9X13 baking dish; repeat with a second layer of each. Transfer to oven and bake until cheese is melted – about 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and garnish with green onions and cilantro; serve immediately with salsa.
