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.
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.
From "All Time Favorite Recipes". For fun, try substituting Butterscotch or white chocolate chips for the semi-sweet and/or peanut butter chips. Make sure you cool it completely or the bottom will crumble!
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.
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.*
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.
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.
The strawberry flavor is a refreshing change from chocolate fudge. I chose to add the pecans, but if you don't care for them you can leave them out . Also, be sure to stir constantly because it will stick to the bottom of the saucepan if you don't. The cook time includes time for cooling.
