Lets exchange recipes for favorite holiday candies and gifts - Page 9

post #121 of 568
I am making homemade vanilla now for Christmas gifts. Just a bottle of vodka and vanilla beans. I bought my vanilla beans from amazon. Someone from this site told me about amazon and the beans are very reasonable there. I think the company is something like "JR Mushrooms" or something. I have 4 bottles in my closet right now... Yummmy! I go back and open them every once in a while just to smell!!!

mcdonald:
so your recipe is really vanilla? I never heard of anyone making that. Is it cost effective? Does it taste like pure vanilla or vanilla extract? Oh man. You got head a spinnin.

jovigirl. I sure can ! I used a decorating bag( point down) and then added the red hots first, then crumpled up plastic wrap for the hair.Then added a baggie of cocoa then the mini marshmallows. I tied it with Christmas ribbon and added googly eyes and a cotton ball on the tip. If You need a picture just pm me your email and I can send it .Thanks for asking !

Can you give me some tips on how to do this? I would love to know. This sounds like a wonderful gift.

Wow, what a great thread! I love all the little treats!

My guilty from-childhood pleasure : pb & brown sugar sandwiches! I know, I know...but the sugar gets a little melty...yum. I also love to put a blob of pb in a bowl and cover it with a bit of honey or maple syrup.

Unfortunately my (DH's) family is a bit snobbish when it comes to gift giving. Unless my daughter made it, homemade gifts are just "Oh, thanks....." No one in my family, except my husband's aunt, likes my cakes either. I've been told by non-family I should start a bakery, so I'm not bad at it. I suggested to do a funny/gag gift exchange, it was immediately shot down. We have a white elephant with a $25 per person minimum. icon_sad.gif

Wish I lived near my mom's family, they would love these kind of gifts!
Thanks for the youtube movie on fruit bouquets, I'm going to have to try one of those! And maybe I'll ship some gifts off to some family that'll appreciate it! Or maybe I'll just eat them all myself!

Definitely trying the vanilla!

Oh man, I have some home made vanilla... I bought the beans from a trusted seller on eBay... he has a whole store front, and they are dirt cheap! You wouldn't believe it!! I have made tons of things with vanilla beans, and it's so fun!!

Lilybird: I love your idea for this thread as candy is my passion and I haved a selection of recipes that exceeds my kitchen - ha, ha! I will post in the next few days.

Also, does anyone have a good recipe for Pumpkin Fudge? I made some last Thanksgiving and although it tasted great the final product dried out too quickly.

This sounds like a lot-a-fun!

Melvira - I LOVE MILK TOAST! My mom made it for us all the time. Any other time I've talked about eating it, I've gotten weird looks. We don't do cinnamon toast (although that sounds DELICIOUS) just dry toast with a little bit of salt. I know it sounds funny, but it's is SO good.
I can't wait to tell my mom that we're not the only ones eating it!
Anyone else out there that eats Larschman and Berries?

There was a pumpkin fudge recipe floating around here last year sometime. I have no clue how to track it down -- it's buried in one of the threads. Sounded good though! icon_biggrin.gif
