I just came across this and thought its got to be the coolest baked xmas gift idea Ive seen in a long time, I know what Im doing later in the year, a change from the cookies I usually make or added to them. How cute!

 

You can find the how to info for making your own Santa Hat Brownies but you will need your own recipe

PostSubject: Any new Xmas recipes?   Mon Dec 03, 2012 5:43 pm

Been looking through the mags mum buys, wondering if anyone is trying anything new or has any recipes to share? I was thinking raspberries and rose petals would make a good combination to make into a jelly/jam when I was walking home from school today, hmmmm, think I might make some for little quick gifts

Being from Ohio, I as well as everyone else in this state LOVE my buckeyes. But seldom make them because it takes so long.

WooHoo Ladies, has anyone made the buckeye pies? Same recipe, but layer in a cookie sheet and cut to fit into the candy paper. SOOOOO much faster and taste the same!!! It isn't Christmas in this state without buckeyes!

Did someone put up a recipe here at some time for chocolate that you made by melting it and adding broken pieces of candy canes? I thought it was here but can't find it ......HELP !!!!

HP, you're thinking of peppermint bark. I think this is the recipe I've used the past few years....sorta. I don't have a double boiler, so I just met the chocolate and then mix everything up.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/peppermint-bark-recipe/index.html

I used both dark and white chocolate in separate batches last year and the dark chocolate was AWESOME!

Sewn3w, I love buckeyes too!

It's not Christmas for me without Grandma's butter cookies. I made her version at Thanksgiving, but I'm sure she's doing them at Christmas. So instead, I'm gonna take the recipe that came with the cookie press my brother gave me for my birthday this year and do the chocolate butter cookies.

there's one other recipe I've done a few times from one of Anita mom's old books. You find circle pretzel rings (which is the really hard part since they're not too common in the store) and place them on a cookie sheet. Then place an unwrapped Hershey kiss in the middle of each pretzel ring. Melt them in the oven for a few minutes. Then when you take them out, press one M&M into the middle of each one so the kiss chocolate fills the pretzel. Stick in the fridge until hard.

mmmmmm....buckeyes! I'm partial to anything peanutbuttery.

Bratt...that sounds like a fun recipe...I make one similar using the small pretzel twists, put a unwrapped rolo candy on top, pop in the oven for a few minutes, then remove and press a pecan down into the rolo....tastes like a turtle candy.

Talking about pretzels......

TASTY SEASONED PRETZELS


1 pkg Original Ranch Dressing mix
1 bottle Orville Butter Flavored popcorn oil
2 pkg pretzels * I use sticks and twists together
2 Tablespoon dry crushed Dill

Take one VERY LARGE bowl, put all ingredients in and give it a stir. Every Time you think about it or walk by it, give it a stir to mix up well. Keep tossing and mixing till all the oil is absorbed. Usually takes several hours.

When it is ready you can put in separate gift zip locks and give out or you can keep in the bowl and just sit it out for everyone to enjoy.

Watch out.... these are addicting! smile

No, the pretzels don't get soggy at all...funny you would think they would get soft, but they don't. Gave the recipe to my elder man neighbor and he has made four batches of them JUST FOR HIMSELF! I find I like to munch on them occasionally too rich for me to sit down and eat a whole bowl full at one time.

If I kept this stuff around I would weigh a ton. I am not too good at leaving things alone. The pretzels sound very yummy. Something savory to off set all the sweets.
