FAVORITE CHRISTMAS TREATS

What are your favorite Christmas treats? I love Dreyers Peppermint ice cream serve with Hot Fudge on top. I also love Mint M&Ms. The M&Ms are a little tricky to find, however.

Mine is the German Marzipan covered with the dark chocolate. Perhaps more of a comfort food from wonderful memories of Christmas time with my granny!

I love to make so many yummy treats at Christmas time. I justify it because I give a lot of it away, but I really do end up eating a lot of it too!

I made the yummiest peppermint bark last year and will be doing that again. Truffles and spice cake are favorites too. I would like to find a recipe for these really yummy cookies that I had in Denmark many years ago. Peppernodder or something like that.

This is also one of my favorites, I like putting it on a brownie then with fudge sauce yum yum. I also like to make brownies and then top them with Andes mints once they melt spread it around, mm good.

You hit it right on the head! I LOVE peppermint icecream with hot fudge! I have the best hot fudge recipe:
6 TBS cocoa
13 oz can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
2 TBS butter or marg

bring to a boil. Boil about 15 min. (keep stirring or it wil scorch)

Then add:
1 TBS butter or marg
dash of salt
1 tsp vanilla

ENJOY!!!!
