GEMMA, I love your baking and tips. Thank you for what I know to be time consuming work for us to get to do it simply. I made your cookie dough and added my own ingredients and won the cookie competition. I was so shocked to have won especially since it was my first time making cookies. EVER. I added to your crazy cookie dough 2 cups Coconut 2 cups Slivered Almonds 2 cups Rice Krispies. People are begging me for them all the time, and now get upset when I don’t bring them to dinners or our church bake… Read more »

Hello Gemma! There is no nutter butter cookies in my country. Is this the same as Peanut Butter Cookies which is available and common here. Thanks in advance. You are such an angel. Thanks for help! God bless.

Hi Gemma,
These look delicious. I want to make the chocolate cups but instead of the cookie butter I want to put chocolate mousse/strawberry mousse as a filling. Once the mouse is set in the chocolate cups in the refrigerator, will pouring hot melting chocolate over the mousse not ruin it/cause it to become watery?

Do advise.

Thanks 🙂

Hi Gemma, I came across the very attractive Oreo truffles and went immediately to look for in the recipe. The first ingredient says to use the Oreo cookie butter, but I don’t know how to make that first, to add to the other ingredients. Could you tell me how to do that, as I could not locate it.
They look absolutely delicious. Thank you. Margaret

I am not able to use any cookie for the peanut butter cups. I need to make them soon and I cant get any cookies. Can I just use peanut butter and put some powdered sugar?

Please reply ASAP

Hi Gemma!

I was wondering if for the oreo truffles, Can you use dark or milk chocolate instead of white?
