This year, in honor of my recent Victorian release Loving Leonardo, I’m offering a Love waits in Unexpected Places mug of Victorian inspired goodies — a reproduction chatelaine magnifying glass, two cards of Art Nouveau reproduction buttons, a small porcelain Victorian reproduction trinket box from the Victorian Company, and of course, chocolate!
Hello, I’m Rose Anderson, the author of these scorching romances:
The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo, Loving Leonardo, Dreamscape, and Hermes Online.
You can find me just about anywhere these days. I’d love if you’d stop by. Check out my books or just say hi.
Making gifts for the Holidays? Try this!
Lump of Coal cookies
One 16 oz package of Oreo Cookies crushed fine
5 cups large marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter
This works best on parchment but a well-buttered (bottom and sides) 8X8 inch baking pan should do the trick too
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse Oreos until ground. An alternative would be a Ziploc bag, a rolling pin, and some frustration to vent. 🙂 In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt butter and marshmallows in the microwave until puffy, about 1½ – 2 minutes in my microwave. (Watch carefully…remember that Sta-Puff Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters? Well, there’s a chance you’ll have him in your microwave if you let them puff too much)
With a buttered spoon, stir in ground Oreo Cookies until combined. Dump into your buttered pan and using a piece of wax paper or foil on top, press mixture flat and even. Let sit for at least 10 minutes. Cut into chunks of “coal” and serve.
