Memorial Day signifies the beginning of summer to many, but we should never forget that Memorial Day is a day of observances for those who served our country in military service. For many, this remembrance includes a parade in their honor as a special thanks to all veterans.
If you’re going to a Memorial Day parade or planning a picnic or party, some special treats are sure to be appreciated. Getting the kids involved in making these easy chocolate cookies is a good way to convey the true essence of Memorial Day.
You may already have most of the ingredients you’ll need to make all of the chocolate treats listed below. All of these recipes begin with a Martha White® Chocolate Chip Flavored Muffin Mix in addition to ingredient staples like brown sugar, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, cocoa, eggs, butter and milk. In addition to these staple items, you’ll only need a few more ingredients – oats, pecans, marshmallows, a container of coconut pecan flavored frosting, butterscotch chips and chocolate chips.
