Christmas gift idea

Aren't these too cute?!

Joy and are planning to make these as gifts for our friends, neighbors and teachers at church for Christmas. We did a trial batch and they were oh, so yummy!

We may have to do a few more trial batches because ours didn't harden. Not sure what we did wrong but we liked eating our mistakes! ; ) Yumm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The recipes I've seen online, have you rolling them in m&ms or chocolate chips or sprinkles or peanuts! You can also use white chocolate! : )

One of our favorite family recipes is Spiced Walnuts!

My mother-in-law used to make them and send them to us in a tin with our Christmas presents.

I make them every year because they are so good and remind us of 'Grandmum.'

They make a great gift to pass out to friends and neighbors in decorative bags or tubes etc...

And they make your house smell like everything you love about Christmas!

~I'm always tempted to eat the entire batch myself. Not good.

You can find the recipe in this post! (this was from a bloggers Christmas tour of homes a couple years ago) I hope you give them a try! : )

There is also a recipe for some really CUTE holiday reindeer cookies that are a big hit at parties. I made those several times last year. Lots of fun for little hands to help with!

Happy holiday planning!

"It's the most wonderful time of the year." Right?

-(I end up hearing that song sung very early every year because my hubby sings it when football season starts! He's so funny!)
