The non-baking has begun. The following recipes are easy to make and will store well in a cool place. They make quick and easy neighbor or hostess gifts and can be made with the help of your children.
Of course we need to start out with pretzel treats. I am not sure what it is about the salty chocolate taste that keeps driving me back. Like the eyeballs and turkey ones these I simply use green, red or white chocolate discs on square pretzels, heat on 250 for a few minutes and add a festive M&M. If you have the budget the M&M’s that can be personalized with pictures or wording would be adorable as hostess gifts or simply treats around the house.
ANother holiday favorite, using the same technique as above but instead of the chocolate disc, I melt a rolo slightly on the pretzel and then press a pecan into the slightly melted rolo. Tastes like a turtle candy. Yum, Yum.
1, 2 3 cookies. This is a great one for egg and wheat allergy friends and family.
1 cup of peanut butter-not crunchy
2 cups of chocolate chips
3 cups broken up Corn flakes
Simply melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth. Add the peanut butter and then stir in the cornflakes.
Scoop onto a cookie pan lined with wax paper and put in the fridge until firm
For a more festive presentation, scoop into mini cupcake holders.
These would look great wrapped up in a small candy dish as a hostess or teachers gift.
Happy Candy making
