HOW TO WIN: This was a popular contest the last couple of years so we'll do it again: post a recipe for your favorite holiday dessert. Whether it's Christmas cookies, a pie for Thanksgiving or anything else you'd like, share the recipe with everyone here.

Hopefully it's something you've made every year that you love, or if you are "baking-challenged", find a recipe that sounds good and post that one. Feel free to tell everyone why it's so good and/or include pics to make everyone hungry.

I have hidden the previous years' threads so you can't just copy and paste a previous entry (not that any of you would be that lazy, lol), so if you entered in the past 2 years, try to find another recipe to use this year to keep things fresh.

You can post as many recipes as you'd like (please try to keep them all in one post if possible), but each person will only get one entry for the drawing.

Entries will be accepted until 8pm ET on Friday. At that point I'll randomly select 5 winners from all eligible entries and they will each win a Black Friday t-shirt!

Good luck to all!

I haven't tried these yet, but they will be on this year's list of desserts. If nothing more they'll be a fun recipe to try with my godson with the added bonus of being delicious too. How can you go wrong with chocolate and marshmallows?

Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats
Ingredients

24 chocolate-striped shortbread cookies
12-ounce package of chocolate chips

24 marshmallows
tube of yellow decorators' frosting

Instructions

Set the chocolate-striped cookies stripes down on a wax-paper-covered tray, spacing them well apart.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler.

One at a time, stick a wooden toothpick into a marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate, and promptly center it atop a cookie.

Using a second toothpick to lightly hold down the marshmallow, carefully pull out the first toothpick.

Chill the hats until the chocolate sets, then pipe a yellow decorators' frosting buckle on the front of each hat.

This has been a Favorite of my Kids for Nearly 30 years (Good Lord, I am OLD!) ;) When they were little they thought that Mrs. Santa had made the cookies and the white on them was snow from the North Pole. :)

Chocolate Crinkles

Posted Image

Ingredients

4 eggs
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup cooking oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
Powered Sugar to Roll the Cookies in

Directions

1. In a large bowl, combine eggs, granulated sugar, melted chocolate, oil, baking powder, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Gradually beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours or until dough is easy to handle. *Note - I ALWAYS refrigerate overnight and take out small bits to work with at a time and leave the rest in the refrigerator as you are working with each batch... the Colder the Easier to roll up.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet; set aside. Place powered sugar in a small bowl. Shape one portion of dough into 1/2-inch balls. Shape the remaining portion of dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in powered sugar to coat generously. Place balls 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet.

3. Bake small cookies in the preheated oven about 8 minutes or until edges are set and tops are dry. Bake large cookies about 10 minutes or until edges are set and tops are dry. Do not overbake cookies. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool. (Cookies will deflate slightly upon cooling.) Makes about about 72 small and 36 large cookies.

*To Store: Layer cookies between waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Yield: 36 large cookies or 72 small cookies (My Kids say the Bigger the Better!) ;)

I make these brownies for every occasion. They work out especially well when you have to bring a dessert to a large gathering. I cut them into small pieces because they are very rich.

Traditional Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

2 teaspoons milk

Topping
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter

1

These scrumptious swirled confections are wonderful for gift-giving or adding to a plate of homemade candies.
Posted Image


PREP TIME 20 min
TOTAL TIME 12 hr 55 min
SERVINGS 4


2 2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup coarsely chopped nuts


1. Cook sugar, corn syrup and water (use 1 tablespoon less water on humid days) in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking, without stirring, to 260ºF on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a hard ball that holds its shape but is pliable.
2. Beat egg whites in medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Continue beating while pouring hot syrup in a thin stream into egg whites, beating constantly on medium speed. (For best results, use electric stand mixer, not a portable handheld mixer since beating time is about 10 minutes and mixture is thick.) Add vanilla. Beat until mixture holds its shape and becomes slightly dull. (Mixture may become too stiff for mixer.) Gently stir in nuts.
3. Drop mixture from buttered spoon onto waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature at least 12 hours, turning candies over once, until candies feel firm. Store in airtight container.

Expert Tips
Try it dry: Making this candy on humid days requires a longer beating time.

Leftover egg yolks keep for 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator; cover tightly to prevent a skin from forming. You can also freeze egg yolks, but they will be harder to mix with other ingredients once thawed. Add extra yolks to scrambled eggs or omelets for an extra-rich breakfast or brunch dish.

One of my favorite memories is making this with my mom every year.

Santa Hat Party Mix Here’s what you’ll need… Bugles Red Melting disks Mini marshmallows White sprinkles (I used nonpareils) Melt the candy melts, along with a tablespoon of shortening (to help thin the melted candy), in 30 second intervals on half power in your microwave until melted. Immediately start dipping. Let them set up for 10 minutes or so on parchment or wax paper. When they are set, remelt the red candy disk (if necessary) and dip just the bottoms (the large part of the Bugle) into the white sprinkles. Then flip it over and dip the top in the melted candy and press a mini marshmallow on top. And voila…Bugle Santa Hats! If you want to use the hats as an addition to a mix here’s an idea for a sweet and salty mix that’s easy and yummy. Feel free to play around with the additions and make it your own! 3 cups mini pretzels 1/2 cup craisins 1 cup salted dry roasted peanuts 2 cups Rice Chex 2 cups holiday colored M&M’s 8 oz. white chocolate for melting Spread all your ingredients, EXCEPT M&M’s, out on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Melt your white chocolate according to package directions and drizzle over the pretzel mix. Transfer into a large bowl and coat mix with chocolate. Return to baking sheet to allow to dry. When chocolate is set, sprinkle M&M’s and Bugle Santa Hats over the mix. Transfer to big bowl to serve!

CHRISTMAS SALAD Ingredients. 1 box lemon jello 1 box cherry jello 1 8oz package cream cheese 1 large can pineapple crushed 1 bag miniature marshmallow 1/2 pint whipping cream DIRECTIONS Fix lemon jello according to box direction. Add cream cheese while still warm. Let cool then whip until foamy. add crushed pineapple and the whipped cream. ( whip the cream first).

I think I just gained 5 lbs from reading this thread! :gdlicklips: My grandmother makes this all the time, and it's super fast to put together! PEOPLE/PUPPY CHOW 1 box Chex cereal (corn or wheat) 1 stick butter 1 cup smooth peanut butter 1 (12 oz.) bag chocolate chips 1 bag powdered sugar Melt butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter in a saucepan. Pour melted mixture over Chex in a large bowl and stir carefully until all of it is covered. Put 2 cups (or more to taste) of powdered sugar into a large plastic (Ziploc) bag and pour coated cereal mixture into it, then shake til all cereal is covered with powdered sugar. The powdered sugar will cause the chocolate covered Chex to separate into small pieces. Enjoy!!!
