Sweet and Salty Christmas Treats

I do realize refrigerators all over this country are stuffed full of Thanksgiving leftovers.  But truthfully, the turkey is cold, the gravy has jellied and the pumpkin pie is gone.  To me that means one thing — Christmas!  Brunch, luncheons, parties, Christmas eve, Christmas dinner and New Year’s eve … it will all start tumbling upon me as early this next week.  Thanksgiving is so late this year that December started … yesterday.  Yikes!

Milky way snickers
These sweet and salty treats were such a big hit last year that Snickers and Milky Way are now available in little bite size pieces just waiting for a pretzel.

This couldn’t be easier.  Pretzel — chocolate — in a 350 degree F. oven for 4 minutes.  Top with another pretzel and squish lightly.  Cool and eat!

A pecan on top turns these sweet treats into turtles when they top a Rolo.  Take a look  Rolo Me Over Turtles from Christmas 2011 where I first found the recipe on http://www.sowonderfulsomarvelous.com.

Have a blessed week.  Don’t work too hard or let the stress start building up.  It happens so quickly even when we know better!

Happy Baking,

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. Hebrews 1:1-2 ESV


Tuesdays With Dorie: Boca Negra

chocolatyCakeToday the Tuesdays With Dorie baking group has put together another fabulous Julia Child recipe for Boca Negra.   Boca Negra actually means black mouth. That black mouth allegedly comes from eating this intensely chocolate cake. I say allegedly since I haven’t actually tasted this one yet! The recipe calls for twelve ounces of bittersweet chocolate and that doesn’t even count the 12 ounces of white chocolate that goes in the cream on the side!  This picture comes from the website www.seriouseats.com.  I don’t have pictures of my own because I chose not to make this dessert, at this time.  But I didn’t want you to miss out on such a beautiful cake.  Many Tuesdays with Dorie bakers will be posting their Boca Negra adventures and you can find their links here.  The recipe can be found on the website hosted by Cathy at A Frederick Food Garden.

twd-bocanegra_1Cathy’s beautiful Boca Negra and her blog post is outstanding too, I hope you will check it out.

I posted it back in 2011 and the recipe can be found here.

I hope your week is off to a warm and not too wintry start!

Blessings and Happy Cooking!

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:11-12 NIV1984
