Two-in-One Holiday Bar

The recipe listed below is a Pillsbury recipe but for some reason when I searched for it I couldn't find a thing on it! I ended up finding the photo and another recipe for it here, but I thought I would still type out the recipe I used because I know it's great.

I promised I would post this recipes because you ladies loved it so much at the info desk and in the nursery (at my church, the two of 3 areas I volunteer in) so here you go! I hope you enjoy it!!

Rating: I give these a 5! (1 being "I'll never bake them again" and 5 being "They are now one of my favorites")

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 cup diced mixed candies fruit
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I prefer slivered almonds)

1 cup icing sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 350F
Combine sugar, butter and beat until it's light and fluffy.
Add vanilla and egg; beat well.
Add flour; mix well.
Spread dough in ungreased 15x10x1 inch baking pan.
Sprinkle half of the pan with the candies fruit and the other half with the chocolate chips and nuts.
Press toppings lightly into the dough.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are brown.
Cool for an hour.

In a small bowl combine icing sugar and milk. Add additional milk if need be.
Blend until smooth.
Drizzle over cooled bars.
Let stand until set.
Cut into bars.

Yields: 48 bars

Marshmallow Salad

I couldn’t seem to find this recipe online or in my cooking books either, and well yet again I asked on facebook and I ended up with three different versions. This is the one I like the most and the one I was looking for. I’m going to make it as one of many things for Christmas dinner!

- 1 tub Nutria Whip or Cool Whip
- 1 box Jell-o Powder (flavor of your choice)
- 2 cups Mini Marshmallows
- Can of Pineapple (drained)
- Can of Mandarin Oranges (Drained)
- ½ cup Coconut

Mix whip cream and Jell-o powder together (leave little behind for sprinkling on top). Mix in mini marshmallows, pineapple (crushed works best), mandarins, and coconut. Scoop into nice bowl. Sprinkle remaining Jel-lo powder on top. Put in fridge to set (2 hours in best).

Have any good ideas, or substitutes for this....share them, leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you!!
