OH MY GOODNESS! Can it be Christmas without some Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark?
So easy to make, and so much better than anything you can buy! Superior quality chocolate - both white and dark chocolate - combine to create the perfect "snap" when you break or bite into it.
And I'll let you in on a little secret...a chunk of this Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark dropped into a cup of steaming hot chocolate melts into a silky, creamy and pepperminty treat that you have just got to experience!
These are a family favorite at appetizer parties or just for munching! I never have any trouble getting the kids to help make these, and they fight over who gets to eat the leftover "ends" of each rollup.
Make sure to pat your pickles with paper towels when you start assembling these. You'll slather each slice of maple ham with onion & chive cream cheese. Start rolling your pickle at one end of a ham slice, and then roll three consecutive slices of ham & cream cheese around each pickle, rolling slow and firmly to keep each pickle roll as compressed and tight as possible.
These may be one of the most popular Christmas cookies, and found on just about every Christmas Cookie plate - but have you ever picked one up to eat and it was too crisp and not at all what you were expecting?
These are tender, chewy cookies - and best when warm out of the oven (just ask my kids). I have a hard time hiding enough to make it through the holidays!
Everyone always wants the recipe for these big-time family favorites - not just for holidays!
These chewy, gooey bars are always requested as a "final meal" before braces go on, and as a "welcome back" after the braces come off!
These delicious treats can also be customized a lot of different ways! You can use half granulated sugar and half light brown sugar for a slightly chewier bar; you can also substitute Special K cereal in place of the Rice Krispies. I sometimes use peanut butter & milk chocolate chips in place of the semi-sweet chocolate chips in the frosting. For another twist, replace the peanut butter in the frosting with Nutella.
Anyway you make these, they are a wonderful treat, and a requirement at every big family event! Hope that your hungry bunch will love them as much as we do!
These are the WONDERFUL old-fashioned Scandinavian Rosettes that my Mom (Grama Benesh) made every year for Christmas!
Lightly golden and sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar or granulated sugar (everyone has their favorite sprinkle), I don't think it would be Christmas without them!
