Kit Kat Cookies

It's September, that means it's birthday month. My birthday was last week, my Dad's was Tuesday and yesterday was the Hubby's.

I always like to make something for the Hubby on his birthday. He will eat cake if we are somewhere like a wedding, but not very often does he just want a piece of cake. He likes brownies, cookies, and candy bars. 

For his birthday this year I decided to combine two of his favorites: chocolate chip cookies and Kit Kat candy bars!

This cookie is sweet, chewy, and delicious! 



Happy birthday honey!

Kit Kat Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 snack size Kit Kat bars, chopped in thirds
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Start out by creaming together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. 

While that is working in the mixer, in a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set this bowl to the side. 

Now that your butter and sugars are creamed together, add your egg and mix until completely incorporated. Then add your vanilla. 

Turn down your mixer while you add your dry ingredients (otherwise you and your kitchen will be covered in white...not that I know by experience or anything!). 

Once this is just combined, add your Kit Kat's and chocolate chips. The mixer will break up the Kit Kat bars into smaller chunks. If you don't want to use any chocolate chips, bump up your Kit Kat amount or maybe you like white chocolate chips or maybe you want to use the white chocolate Kit Kat bars... the combinations are endless!

Once everything is incorporated, cover your mixture and chill for a couple hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. (as you notice I had ran out and forgotten to buy more! OOPS!)


Scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls (I used my ice cream scoop to portion it out). 

Bake these for about 10-12 minutes. I recommend 10 minutes. The cookies will look slightly underdone, but you will have carry over cooking and it will give you a moist, chewy cookie.



Let them cool on the pans for a few minutes, before transferring them to cooling racks. This should get you about 22-24 cookies.



Then you can enjoy these with a cold glass of milk! 

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.


We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 


The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
