Sweets to the Sweet

How about sharing your favorite Christmas Cookie or Candy recipes with us? Of course we are hoping that you ladies will be in the mood to bake a batch or two of something sweet for our upcoming Christmas Chit Chat. Because of course a Christmas party isn't a Christmas party without the sharing of sprinkles, shortbread and fudgey goodness. Here is what I have made so far and my wish list of treats to try:

Sweets I've Made so far:

Almond Roca

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Soft Gingersnaps

{ All of which were yum }

Use the base recipe without playing with any of the ingredients.
For the peppermint marshmallows, finely ground about a cup and a half of candy canes and mix it into the fluffy mixture along with about a half teaspoon of peppermint extract and a few drops of red food dye. Afterwards, cut them into squares, and roll them in a mixture of powdered sugar and leftover crushed candy cane.
To make coconut marshmallows. Add a teaspoon of coconut flavoring and about 3/4 cup shredded coconut to the fluffy mixture before pouring it into the pan. I finely chopped more
coconut to mix with the powdered sugar to roll them around in.

So excited to hear all about what sort of tastey Christmastime treats you ladies have been whipping up and discovering some new favorites to add to my must make list.
