Anita's Chocolate Cookies (Chokladsnittar)
Swedish FlagThis is by far one of the best tasting chocolate cookies ever and is my youngest sons favorite after trying them recently. The recipe comes from Anita my mother-in-law in Sweden and they are always made in our kitchen by my husband. The Swedish name for this cookie is Chockladsnittar. Direct translation is “chocolate dainties”.
The only ingredient you may not have in your cupboard is the Swedish pearl sugar that is sprinkled on the cookies but can easily be found in most specialty food stores or online.
Now — on with the recipe for these exceptional cookies.

Makes approximately 50 cookies

14 T Land O Lakes margarine (1 – 3/4 sticks)
1 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 T unsweetened Cocoa powder
3 T corn syrup
1 1/2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder

1 beaten egg
Pearl sugar

Do this:
Cream margarine then add the sugar and vanilla and blend. Add the remaining 4 ingredients and blend thoroughly with electric mixer.
Place cookie dough on floured surface and form into ball. Work the dough with your hands for a short time. Take a portion of the dough and roll between your hands to make a rope the length of the cookie sheet. Place 2 of the rolled dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet and flatten each with your fingers.
Beat one egg and brush a light coating of the egg wash on the dough with a pastry brush. Sprinkle the dough with pearl sugar and bake in 300º F oven for 11 minutes. If using an air-bake cookie sheet you may wish to bake an additional 2-3 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes and cut with knife into 3 inch wide portions. Continue to cool on cookie sheet for another 10 minutes before removing with spatula. They will be slightly crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle — yum!

Easy Nacho Cheese Dip

American FlagQuick and easy Nacho Cheese dip for a tasty snack or as a side dish with you summer picnic. This recipe originates from New Mexico where I lived for a short while many years ago. Nice place to visit but I was not crazy about living in New Mexico as I like to be surrounded by lots of green grass and trees! Sorry, don’t meat to offend anyone… just my opinion.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 8 oz. Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 16 oz. Picante Sauce (Medium)
  • 1/4 C milk
  • Tostido Corn Chips

Do this:
Brown the ground beef in a large saucepan on medium-high heat. Once browned, lower heat and add cubed Velveeta cheese stirring until melted. Add cream of mushroom soup (undiluted) to meat mixture and stir to combine. Now add the Picante sauce and the milk. Bring to a slow simmer for a few minutes and serve with corn chips. I like to pour the dip on my chips or you may place the hot dip in a bowl.
