Get Organized in the New Year

I’m all about finding simple ways to spend time on what matters and eliminate the stuff I don’t need to do. Since you’re a Cookie Elf reader, I bet you feel the same.

Spring is here. And if spring cleaning isn’t on your To-Do list (or if you don’t know where to begin) … or if you feel like you’re disorganized … if you feel overwhelmed with junk …

Here’s some news that is a relief. Jane organized her home and her stuff in 7 days. She had to when she moved from Canada to Australia! When she figured out to streamline everything, it made a huge difference for her. It can for you too. Check out how you can drop your clutter and feel the relief in time for summer. More info.

Feature: 12 Days of Easy Christmas Cookies #12 – for No-Bake Reese’s Bars, Just 7 Ingredients!

No-Bake Reese’s Bars combine two great flavors – milk chocolate and peanut butter – producing a taste and texture that is a clone of the ever-popular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

The trademark milk chocolate-smooth peanut butter combination was fathered by H.B. Reese in 1928, who began producing his peanut butter cups and other candy in his Hershey, PA basement. Reese’s have become the best-selling candy brand in the U.S.These bars, more a confection than a straight-up cookie because they are not baked, mimic the popular Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups save for having just one layer of chocolate, rather than two. They contain no flour, making them a favorite among the gluten-free crowd.

To top it off, they are incredibly easy to make and have just 7 ingredients.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 30-60 minutes
Makes about 60 bite-sized bars
