Everyone loves these almonds and they're very easy to make. I always use less cayenne and Tabasco than called for but if you like heat use the full amounts. Store in a freezer bag in the freezer. Great for hostess gifts!
This makes a great gift, needs to be refrigerated. Give in a jar with a pretty spoon tied onto it. Serve over oatmeal, yogurt or toast! Adapted from MarthaStewart Living magazine. Catagories: USA, Canada, Africa, Australia
Looking for a candy combo of chocolate, cranberry & cashew I caem across this recipe at candy.about.com, & it suited my needs perfectly! However, if your situation includes the bark sitting around a long time in warm temperatures, it's suggested that 'real' chopped chocolate be used & tempered so that it won't melt in the heat!
Coloured sugar, sprinkles, grated coconut or crushed candy canes may be sprinkled on right after dipping into the chocolate, have fun and use your imagination to decorate the coated pretzels, it's a fun holiday project for children of all ages! :)
This recipe came from a book with all sorts of mixes that you layer in a quart canning jar to give as gifts. I wanted to try this particular one so I just put everything together in a mixing bowl and didn't bother making a jar. Sometimes the goodies that are in a jar are not that great but these are delicious; they are moist and have lots of yummy flavors. At the end of the recipe in the instructions, I will list how to do the layers if you should want to give this as a gift. You will notice in the layers that there are two of flour, white sugar, and brown sugar. That is just to make it look nice but if you are going to make it without the jar, just follow the instruction that I have listed. Tie a big bow around the top and give as a gift.
My daughter Kelleigh learned this recipe at culinary school. They are
quite addictive just plain or you can use them in salads. This is definitely a recipe that you should go out and buy parchment paper for as it will make your life easier in the clean up!
A delicious single serve fruit & nut cake treat, perfect for gatherings or to just have on hand for a nice cuppa. They keep for a long time in an air tight container and also make a lovely gift on a nice plate done up with cellophane and ribbon. Also nice to decorate the tops with a cherry or nuts.
