Tomorrow we will be delivering the packages we made up for local friends and the neighbors. I'll post what we made/included in their packages tomorrow night! After that, I think I'm ready for a good 3-4 day nap... please?
This is one of our favorite snacks during the holiday season - we always have to find the holiday shaped pretzels to use in it too!
These are one of Jeff's new favorite crisp chocolate cookies - studded with those Ande's peppermint crunch chips.
This is another one that we have to make every single year. The perfect combination of salty and sweet in mini bite-sized form! Small peanut butter ritz bits dipped into real white chocolate and topped in holiday sprinkles.
We did the kisses a bit different this year - these crisp meringue cookies are still flavored with peppermint, except I painted red lines inside the pipping bag before filling it to create the colored stripes.
We both love this unusual brittle - instead of your favorite nut, crushed popcorn turns these crunchy snacks into a wonderful sweet treat!
Jeff absolutely has to have these cookies each year - chocolate malt gives these cookies an edge over your ordinary M&M cookies.
How could we not make our favorite new bark? We made this for the first time last year and will be making it for many years to come! I love the striking color difference in the layers and with a bonus of being able to be cut quite neatly! Rich, creamy and very peppermint-y!
One of the more uniquely flavored baked popcorn mixes - sweet caramel and buttery toffee spiked with a large amount of ginger.
One of the new recipes - crunchy biscotti flavored with spices found in gingerbread. Loved the addition of chopped apricots and nutty pecans. Fresh grated orange zest adds a fun background flavor which had people trying to guess what made these so good.
We can't include only one kind of fudge - we started making this a couple years ago and it is just different enough that we always get asked for the recipe.
And finally... the crunchy toffee that we have made at least 5 batches of this season. Crazy good and so delicious.
Here is the quick shot of everything packaged up before they went in their boxes. Whew! Too bad we are not quite done yet!
