Cookie Tips

Begin by pressing one packet of softened chocolate chip cookie dough into the pan's bottom. Before baking, layer two large chocolate bars or your favorite chocolate bars with marshmallow fluff, graham cracker crumbs, and another packet of softened pre-made cookie dough. Above all, when this recipe is a little under-baked, it is the most pleasant. I pull these out of the oven when the top layer of cookie dough is slightly golden colored, and then you can patiently wait until you can serve this to your garage sale customers. You will see the delight on their faces as they sink their teeth onto these decadent morsels of sweetness. For simpler cleanup, coat your pan with high-quality, thick, heavy-duty nonstick aluminum foil. There's nothing like scrubbing baked-on marshmallow creme remains off of your pan. Make sure your cookie dough slabs are softened to room temperature. It's simple to push the bottom layer into your cookie sheet. When putting the top layer on, slightly flatten it in the white paper piece that came with it before plopping it on top. Smoosh the cookie dough back together as best you can if it breaks or rips. It will almost certainly be distributed into itself in the oven. If you want the bars to stay clean and unbroken after baking, make sure you let them cool completely before slicing them. For me, this means making this recipe the night before and letting the bars cool in the pan overnight.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, line a 9x9-inch baking sheet with heavy-duty nonstick aluminum foil for easier cleaning, coat with melted butter, and press one of the cookie dough slabs into the bottom of the pan, producing a smooth flat layer. Place the chocolate bars on top. Using a spatula, spread the marshmallow fluff as evenly as possible. It's sticky, so take your time and do your best. Scatter the graham cracker crumbles on top in an even layer. Using your palm, lightly flatten the second box of cookie dough onto the small cardboard insert that came with it. Transfer it to the pan as best you can. If the dough splits, cracks, or crumbles, bring it all back together as best you can with your fingertips. While baking, it will most likely spread out. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the surface is pleasantly golden brown, or until done to your liking. For maximum gooeyness, keep it under-baked. Allow bars to cool in the pan for at least 3 hours or overnight before cutting and serving. Remember that cutting the bars too thin will result in sloppy bars that may come apart. However, your customers are guaranteed with delightful cookie s’mores!

Tornado Twister Potatoes

Not everyone likes a sweet treat so the Tornado Twister Potatoes are the savory answer to their cravings! Potatoes are extremely versatile and you would serve your customers with a tasty, crispy, and hot potato. You can even create a garlic mayo dip or mustard and ketchup condiment to elevate this simple snack.
  • Big Yukon Potatoes or any other potatoes to be cut
  • 2 cups of grated parmesan cheese
  • 60 grams of melted butter
  • cayenne powder
  • garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • Kosher Salt
  • freshly chopped parsley
  • skewers made of wood that can be used to serve


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius). Put the potatoes in the oven for 1 to 12 minutes, then let them rest and soften in the oven for a few minutes. Gently poke a wooden skewer all the way through the tops of each potato from the bottom. Use a sharp, slender knife at an angle and cut in the opposite direction you are moving the potato, slicing all the way down to the skewer, working in a spiral motion. Make a tight, even spiral all the way back down the potato by taking your time. Carefully spread out each potato slice along the body of the skewer until the spaces between the slices are evenly spread out. Brush the potatoes with the melted butter. Mix the Parmesan, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Spread half of the mixture over each skewered potato in the bowl until they are completely covered. Carefully place the potatoes on a baking pan, allowing the skewers to rest on the pan's sides to suspend the potatoes. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Garnish with more Parmesan and parsley, if desired. Allow 5 minutes to cool before serving.

When life gives you lemons, create the best lemonade for your garage sale

While looking around a garage sale, your customers would want a refreshing drink to curb their thirst. A cold drink can also wash down the sweet and savory snacks that you also sell - and a lemonade is the perfect summer time drink. Lemonade is made with sugar, water, and lemon juice. Pretty straightforward. The issue is that if you just combine all of these ingredients, the sugars will end up at the bottom. So, the ideal technique to prepare lemonade is to first produce a simple syrup by heating water and sugar until the glucose is melted, then adding the lemon juice. The ratios will vary based on how sweet and strong you want your lemonade to be, as well as how tart your lemons are to start with. Instructions: In a small saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a slow simmer. Remove from heat after stirring until the sugar has dissolved completely. Juice your lemons while the water for the simple syrup is heating up. . Blend the juice, simple syrup, and water in a punch bowl. In a serving pitcher, combine the juice and the sugar water from the simple syrup. Taste after adding 2 to 3 glasses of cold water. If you want it to be more diluted, add more water. If the lemonade is too sweet for your liking, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Refrigerate for 30 to 40 minutes before serving. Offer with ice, lemon slices, and mint leaves to garnish.
