A few weeks ago I was able to go to Orrville, Ohio. What is in Orrville you ask? SMUCKER’S!!!!
When I first went to Smucker’s I wasn’t sure what to expect…. I knew they made jam, and ice cream toppings. I must say that they completely took me by surprise. Smucker’s has so much going on that it hurts my head just to think of it! Smucker’s owns Jif, Pillsbury (the shelf products), Crisco, Adams Peanut Butter, Folgers, and many many more food companies. But that wasn’t the thing that surprised me. It was their amazing employees. All of them were so kind, happy, and friendly. I felt like I was in Disneyland.
We were shown many products but I think my favorite one is called Jif Whips. I can’t even begin to describe how good it is! You could use it as a fruit dip, as a peanut butter spread, or as an ingredient in a recipe. I was playing around and decided to give it a shot in No- Bake Cookies. I used the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Mint Jif Whip. – This is the perfect cookie for Christmas! You can thank me later. 🙂 You can find Jif Whips at most local grocery stores.
(If you can’t find Jif Whips at the store you can find it HERE online – obviously, it is a lot cheaper at the store)
Minty No Bake Cookies
2 Cups of sugar
2 Tablespoons of butter
2 Tablespoons of cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
3/4 cup of Peanut Butter Chocolate Mint Jif Whips
2 cups of Quick Uncooked Oatmeal
In a pot, mix together the sugar, butter, cocoa and milk. Put the pot on the stove top and bring the 4 ingredients to a boil.
After it comes to a boil, take it off the stove and mix in the salt, vanilla, and JIF Whips. Mix well until the JIF Whips is completely dissolved. Quickly add the oatmeal and mix. Drop from spoon onto wax or foil paper. Let them cool and set up before you eat them.
(Little Tip: If your batter is a little runny, wait a few minutes before putting them on the foil paper)
