Holly Jolly Christmas Oreos {An Easy and Fun Treat for Christmas!}

Coconut Macaroons {An Easy and Tasty Recipe using Eagle Brand Condensed Milk}

Coconut Macaroons are an elegant cookie, yet easy and almost effortless to make.  This classic macaroon is made with few ingredients, sweetened condensed milk, coconut, and egg whites.  Whisk everything together and scoop them out on a baking sheet.  How easy it that?  They are wonderfully delicious! The traditional macaroon has been around for eons.  I think it is my favorite, but who says you can't mess with perfection and place a chocolate kiss in the center to make Macaroon Kisses.  Or dip the bottom in chocolate and drizzle chocolate over the top, or  even add a cherry in the center to make them look cute.  Hope you enjoy the recipe!   Merry Christmas !

Millionaire Fudge {Granny's Recipe Revisited}

Millionaire Fudge, the perfect old fashioned recipe that will make everyone want to go down memory lane for grandma's fudge recipes.  Millionaire Fudge is my favorite fudge of all time.  It is only the most incredibly scrumptious fudge you will ever eat. In the 1950's, marshmallow whip creme was introduced to fudge recipes by Mamie Eisenhower who changed the whole concept of how easy it is to make, not to mention how delicious.

Gingerbread Oreo Truffles {So Simple To Make ~ Yet So Decadent!}

Gingerbread Oreo Truffles , a mixture of crushed gingerbread Oreos and cream cheese, and then dipped in chocolate almond bark.  Simple to make and yet so decadent. My family is obsessed with Oreos, Double Stuffed ones to be exact.  This weekend we opened our first batch of the Gingerbread ones for this year.   Gingerbread Oreos  are seasonal, only coming out in the stores around the first of November.  As soon as I see them in the stores, the first thing I think about is making these decadent Gingerbread Oreo Truffles .
