This weekend I spent the whole time in the kitchen making holiday goodies to give away to friends and family. I only had one helper this year because BJ was sick and Isabelle wanted to eat it all and not have any to give away.
It was a looooong weekend! It was also especially hard because of I have to honestly admit we are just not into the holiday spirit this year, and this kills me because I LOVE Christmas time.
Now I could go on and on about how crappy things are, or we can just get right to this year's menu.
The usuals: Puppy chow/muddy buddies, peanut butter blossoms, peanut butter balls, white chocolate covered pretzels, and peanut clusters. These few show up here every year, some are "Santa's" favorite but most are some past on to me by my mom.
The newbies: Chex mix, peanut butter fudge, triple chocolate turtle fudge, mint M&Ms chocolate cookies (this was adapted by my brother's chocolate chocolate chip cookies, I added the holiday mint M&Ms instead of chips), sugar/caramel blossoms (my twist from PB blossoms, it sugar cookies with caramel filled kisses), peanut brittle, egg nog cupcakes with egg nog buttercream frosting, and gingerbread cupcakes with vanilla sauce drizzled on top.
I'm not really sure if they are a success or not because my tongue got burnt and I am kinda scared that if I eat some I will go on a full fledged binge. So I am really trying to be a good little girl. We delivered most of the packages today and now all I really need to focus on is getting some shopping done!
