Christmas Prepping

The last few weeks have been focused on getting ready for Christmas. Shopping, decorating, and cleaning. This weekend April is coming over for a baking session. Hopefully, we will get most of it done. We will be baking:

1. Icebox cookies
2. Rolo Turtles
3. Fudge
4. Peanut Brittle
5. Santa hats

6. S'mores on a stick
7. Sugar cookies
8. Chocolate covered cherries (maybe)

I don't think we will get all of that done, but we will give it a good try. The rest I will bake as time permits.

Here is the recipe for Rolo Trutles:

Rolo Candies
Small Pretzels
Pecan Halves
(1 Rolo + 1 Pretzel + 1 Pecan Halve = 1 Treat)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees and line a cookie sheet with foil. Place pretzels flat on the foil-lined cookie sheet. Place 1 Rolo on each pretzel. Place in oven for 4-5 minutes or until Rolos become soft. Immediately after removing pretzels from oven, place a pecan halve on each Rolo and very lightly press down to spread chocolate/caramel over pretzel. Let stand or place in refrigerator until chocolate/caramel hardens.
Goodies will keep for a good while in an air tight container.

These are so good and very addictive.

Merry Christmas!
