I called this Christmas Treats because at Christmas time I bake these wonderful treats and give them as gifts. You can certainly bake them for your own family. I have personally tried all of these recipes and would not hesitate to include any of them in the "goodie" boxes I give away at Christmas.
I copied this recipe off the back of a jar of marshmallow cream. The recipe was for chocolate-walnut fudge. I just change the flavor of the candy chips for different flavors. It is a no fail recipe and always comes out the way you think fudge should.
A co-worker gave me this recipe. You can use any flavor cake mix and icing you choose. My preference is lemon, but I have used a red velvet mix and tinted almond bark with green coloring for christmas. You must refrigerate cake mix in order to roll into balls. I find it is easier to work with half of cake and leave other half in the freezer while dipping. Have fun experimenting with different flavors.
These little gems are bursting with scads of chocolate:) and just a minimal amount of flour to hold everything in line! Crispy outside and soft inside, with a chocolate rush so intense your mouth may feel it for days!!! Hope you love these:) *Prep time includes chill time.*
Delicious sugar cookies, especially if you use the vanilla and almond extracts together. Perfect for roll-and-cut Christmas cookies. Can also be formed into logs for slice-and-bake cookies. Thanks to PetitFour for the original recipe! Prep time includes chilling time.
POPULAR cookies at parties, weddings or on a cookie tray. They melt in your mouth! Very impressive and addictive! I have been making these cookies for 45 years. These are also the same cookies that our dear "Meme" calls butter balls. Yield is approximate as it depends on how large you form each cookie. I have never known anyone to not like this cookie! I have always used real butter for this recipe.
I love these cookies. It's hard to stop eating them so make a double batch. They make impressive gifts as well. If you have any filling left over, you can refrigerate and use it warmed up over ice cream.
This recipe belongs to a very dear friend who was kind enough to share it with me. When her husband was stationed in Lafayette we would get together and bake these cookies at Christmas. It always brings back memories when I make them. I now use this recipe to make "cookie bouquets." When using for a cookie bouquet roll the cookie a little thicker and press lollipop stick into cookie after you have placed on cookie sheet.
