What are you all whipping up in the kitchen for your holiday festivities?
I really hadn't planned on making too much this year, but I found out this weekend that we will be hosting my husband's family for lunch on Christmas Eve, so I decided that I wouldn't be a proper hostess if I didn't have a tray of Christmas cookies and candies out for everyone to snack on.
I was browsing Etsy and found this beautiful tray...

So simple and pretty I would hate to cover it up!
Here is what I have made so far:
Buckeyes ~ Around here, we just call them Peanut Butter Balls and if I don't make them my brother-in-law would disown me. This year I used the recipe from Smitten Kitchen and will definitely continue to make them Deb's way from now on. Her addition of graham cracker crumbs and a little cream cheese is perfect.
Oreo Truffles ~ I hadn't made these before, but they will be on the list from now on. So easy and so good!
1 pkg Oreos + 8 oz cream cheese + chocolate coating = Delicious!
Homemade Marshmallows ~ Another new addition to the lineup. These were fun to make and I liked that my kids know that marshmallows don't have to come from a bag at the store. I used this recipe from Our Best Bites but sadly, forgot to add the vanilla. They are good, but kinda boring. I think I will let the kids dip most of them in a little chocolate and crushed candy canes to liven them up a little.
Peanut Butter Fudge ~ I am not generally a fan of this, but my husband loves it. This year I used a recipe from Annie's Eats that was so simple. My husband said it was great and the little bit that I ate was really good.
Still on the list to make:
Anything else I should add?? I think I need more cookies.
