Lets exchange recipes for favorite holiday candies and gifts - Page 5

I hate the tedious job of dipping pretzels into white chocolate. So two years ago I started making chocolate covered pretzel bark. Same taste, way less work! icon_lol.gif

I really don't have a recipe I just crushed some pretzels and stirred them into melted white chocolate until I had the ratio I liked. Poured onto wax paper and let harden. (I usually sit them outside to set up, but then I live in Indiana, lol)

Yowza!! Lotsa new good stuff! It's all been added!

It's funny to think back to being a kid and my grandmother made the peanut butter ritz sandwiches dipped in chocolate... you'd have thought we were abused children the way we whined for those!! Like we'd never had candy before. To this day I adore them, and the wonderful memories they elicit. Ok... back to the treats, sorry! icon_lol.gif

I found my recipe for "frosted nuts" They are actually meringue covered, but I love this meringue because it doesn't matter if it whips to stiff peaks, which I have a horrible time with icon_mad.gif

This is not for the calorie conscious icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

3 cups of assorted nuts (we always use walnut pieces, pecan halves, and sliced almond)
2 egg whites
1 cup of sugar
1 stick of butter

Toast nut in 325 degree oven for 10 min. Remove.
Melt stick of butter on a sheet pan in the oven.
Beat the 2 egg whites with a dash of salt. Gradually add sugar and beat until stiff. Fold warm nuts into meringue.

Spread mixture on buttered cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes, flipping every 10 minutes to help absorb the butter.

They are always the hit of any holiday gathering and I have become the only one willing to make them. The first smells of toasted nuts and butter just bring back so many memories of making them with my grandma.

Hope everyone enjoys them icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

A foolproof fudge recipe that's been around for years in one form or another.

Mamie's Eisenhower's Million Dollar Fudge Recipe
Ingredients:
4-1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 pinch of salt
12 oz can evaporated milk
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
12 ounces milk chocolate chips
1 pint marshmallow cream
2 cups chopped nuts

In a large bowl, mix chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, and nuts. Set aside. Heat sugar, butter, salt, and evaporated milk over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves and boil for 6 minutes. Pour the boiling syrup over the choc chips, mm cream and nuts. Mix until the chocolate is completely melted, then pour in a 13 x 9 pan lined with buttered foil . Let stand for a few hours or refridgerate before cutting.

I like to give breakfast baskets. Homemade bread from the dutch oven (really crusty), homemade jelly and jam, honey and butter, dozen of fresh eggs, and homemade blueberry or pumkin muffins.
I think this year I will be making homemade herb vinegars, but after reading all of the posts. I might be back to baking for the holidays.

I love the Oreo Balls. They are a hit any where you take them.

One year for the kids in the family I bought mason jars at micheals and painted them with differant stamps.
I put colored cellophane paper inside and then i filled it with chocolates.
Than I wraped it in ribbon, and put bows on top.

they looked so pretty I wish I had pictures
