This recipe is from Taste of Home's Light & and Tasty Holiday Recipes 2004. These are not very sweet, but are a refreshing change of pace from the usual holiday baked goods, fudges, and candies. If you prefer a sweeter treat be sure to add sugar or sugar substitute to the mixture before rolling. I know there are many of us here at Zaar looking for good holiday treats that work with our eating plans. One snowball is 2 points.
Figs, dates, pomegranates and grapes were the only fruits that could be grown in the hot climate. From: Ancient Egyptian Food and Drink. This recipe was from 1600BC and was found on an ostraca. *NOTE* There are no times given but I'm thinking it would go pretty quickly with the food processor.
These are so good, and best of all they are quick and easy to make. They are also very easy to double...and believe me, after you taste these you will wish you had doubled the recipe...I hope you enjoy these amazing squares as much as we do. Please note* there is no baking time.
This log looks amazing cut into slices. Choose a good quality chocolate for this recipe. I use this recipe sometimes as a christmas log. Some amaretti biscuits are naturally gluten free because they are made with apricot kernels, sugar and egg whites so this can easily become a wheat free recipe.
I love salt water taffy, and always pick up some when I go to the beach... Here is a GREAT recipe for those who would like to make your own! Serving size depends on how lg. you cut your pieces. I love using peppermint, and mint flavoring. Sometimes I also mix in finely chopped nuts to the taffy at the end of the pulling, depending on what kind I am making. Experiment with your favorite choices... It's a REAL TREAT!
A chocolate and nut soft toffee. The name does not do it justice, this confection will become a holiday tradition. Wrap large chunks in colored plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon for your gift baskets.
