Christmas Goodies!!!




Today I have been busy in the kitchen! Jan over at the stamp shack posted these yummy looking Pretzel Treats so I had to make some too!!! They are super easy. Just take some Snyder snap pretzels and put a Hershey's kiss on top of each one. Stick in the oven at 170 for about 4 minutes then take out and push a m&m in the center. Your done!! The second picture is of my spiced pecans and spiced walnuts:
4 cups walnuts or you can use pecans
2 cups powdered sugar
canola oil
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
1 teaspoon cinnamon or to taste
salt to taste
Blanch walnuts in boiling water for a few seconds. Remove nuts from water and place in a bowl.Mix the nuts with sugar until you can't see any sugar on the nuts-it should liquefy and cover the nuts Place oil in sauce pan and heat about 3 minutes. Place nuts in oil, do in several batches, and be careful the oil will foam up. Cook until the nuts are lightly brown.Place cooked nuts on a foil covered cookie sheet and let cool.Mix the spices together and sprinkle over nuts making sure every nut is covered!!! EAT!
Hope you all are making some yummy treats too!!!
