Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone has had a good year and are looking forward to a new year, which has too quickly set apon us.
Today my mom and I are making Christmas candy and I wanted to share a couple of recipes that we tried this year. Both of these we will be making for friends in the future and we will be adding them to our traditions list.
First we made that cracker toffee that's been floating around Pinterest and Facebook. Then I twisted it a little. So I will share the twisted version below.
The second one we made is Coconut Walnut Drops. These are little praline like drops. The original recipe called for pecans and corn syrup and called them cookies. Mine did not resemble cookies, but blobs, so drops it is. Also, I don't use corn syrup at all. I don't buy corn syrup and I read all labels. You know even Worcestershire sauce has corn syrup in it! Why?! Ok, I jumped quickly to that soap box. I climbed down, so read on for the recipes.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy time with friends, family and of course food!
