This is wonderfully easy and delicious. I got this recipe from a friend after she brought it to a social gathering. It looks like you have put hours into making it but it only takes minutes. You can also use the filling as a fruit dip!
Something I want to try next Christmas. These are little decorative (and edible) trees that can be stuck into cupcakes, cakes, or whatever you like. If you don't want to use toothpicks, the trees can be laid flat rather than standing up. I guessed at the number of servings.
Every Christmas my friends and family look forward to this in the cookie tins I make for all of them. They get very upset when I do not make this. It is so easy to make. However, you will want to give them away as soon as possible because they are very addicting.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and yet it always gets 'oohs' when people see the candies and 'aahs' when they taste them!
I've gotten several z-mails asking about the candy coating. They are wafers that you melt to then dip candies into to coat them. They are usually sold in the candy section of craft or baking stores. I've seen them in the candy making section of Wal-Mart also. If you look at the ingredients photo on Recipe #104941, you'll see a photo of them. They are a different 'stiffness' than white chocolate chips but some reviews have successfully used those when they can't find the candy coating. Hope that helps!
When I purchased a bottle of Chinese 5-spice powder from my Watkins lady, this is the recipe that came with it. Chinese 5-spice is a blend of aromatic seasonings and includes the licoricy taste of star anise. You can find Chinese 5-spice prebottled in many grocery stores or at an Asian market (or from your local Watkins rep).
Cake-like cookies with hints of eggnog and nutmeg. I've been making these every year for Christmas since I was 12, and every year at least a few people ask for the recipe -- and continue to request them every Christmas. I've been told by lots of people that they don't want me to buy them a gift. They just want me to make these cookies for them. I love bringing these to cookie exchanges and/or giving them as gifts. I know the original recipe came out of a magazine, but I don't remember which one.
We bought a bunch of dark chocolate covered raisins from the candy bins where you scoop out what you want. So my DH scooped up a lot! I hid half of it till I tossed this recipe together. The outside is crunchy, but the center will be moist and chewy.
This recipe has two methods of directions so it's not a hard recipe to put together. Your choice.
