On Saturday I had a Pure Romance party at my new apartment as kind of an apartment warming type party. It was a blast!! I had a lot of Brandon’s family over and a few coworkers/friends. I have a tendency to go a little overboard with snacks and drinks when I throw these little parties. And this one was no different. I made 3 different kinds of goodies, and they all went over really well!!! I made some blueberry cheesecake cookies, Cookies and Cream fudge, and a Cookie/Cake type bar. The Cookies and Cream fudge was eaten completely before I had a chance to remember to take a picture, so I apologize for that.
Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies
- 2 boxes of Blueberry Muffin Mix
- 4 oz. Cream Cheese
- 1 Stick of butter
- 1/2 C. brown sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 1/2 C. White Chocolate Chips
- Cream together butter, brown sugar, and cream cheese.
- Add the eggs, one at a time until well blended.
- Combine the muffin mixes with the butter mixture and mix well.
- Fold in the White Chocolate Chips.
- Chill the batter for at least one hour. **This is VERY important***
- Drop by Tabls fulls on a greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake at 325 for 14-15 minutes, or until just golden around the edges.
- Let cool on the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes, and then on a wire rack to finish cooling.
I beg that you don’t forget to chill the batter! Also, in between baking, chill the batter. You do not want this batter to warm up to room temperature!

Cookies and Cream Fudge
- 1 16oz pkg of Oreos
- 5 Cups (1 bag) large marshmallows
- 4 Tbls butter
- Line an 8×8 baking dish with tin foil, and leave quite a bit hanging over the edge. Heavily spray the foil.
- Place the Oreo’s in a food processor to crush, or in a large zip lock bag and crush with rolling pin. Pulse until crumbly, not completely ground.
- Melt the marshmallows and butter in a large microwave save bowl. Should take about 1-1 1/2 minutes.
- Once melted, pour the ground cookies into the marshmallow mixture. Quickly stir to combine and transfer to the lined baking dish.
- Allow to set for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan by foil edges, cut and serve.
So know the website calls these bars, but it’s more like fudge consistency. Also, they are VERY sticky and hard to remove from the foil. Have patience and go slow!!

Lazy Cake Cookies
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 5 Tbsp butter, melted
- 2 cups M&M’s or mini chocolate chips
- Mix all ingredients together
- Spread mixture into a greased 9×13 cake pan.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
After you mix all of the ingredients together, this batter will be VERY thick. If thats the case, add a few tablespoons of water to it. It should be thick, like cookie dough, but not so thick that you can’t spread it in the cake pan. I ended up using between 2-3 Tbls of water.
