Blog Hop Party: Feeling Jovial

Blog 
Hop Party with Give-Aways

Since Farmer's Wife has decided to take a little break as she prepares for a country Christmas (at least, I assume that's what she is doing!), I thought it would be fun to join a blog hop and offer a little Christmas cheer of my own, a charm pack of "Jovial" by Basic Grey.

So if you are feeling jovial, let me know what your favorite holiday treat is. A special cookie made with an old family recipe? Fudge? Hot spiced cider? Do tell. The Random Number Generator elf will choose a winner on December 16 so you have plenty of time to give me your secret recipe tell me what treat says "Christmas" to you.

And don't forget to join the hop for a chance at some other festive treats.

ETA: Thanks for playing, everyone! Comments are now closed.

  19. As a child I remember making/stealing different candies and other goodies with my mom. I have certain things I have to make each year, even if it is just for my family and I have to put it in the freezer for the next 6 months until it is gone. Christmas to me is truly celebrating the birth of Jesus.

  21. Jovial...I don't even know what it looks like, but I love everything basic Grey, so I'm sure I'd love this too!

    My favorite holiday treat is my mom's homemade toffee. I don't even know how to make it and I have it maybe every 5 years if I'm lucky, since I rarely see my mom on Christmas. the last time I had some I asked her for the recipe and she said, "Oh you don't want to make it. It's very hard and it took me 3 batches before I got this one right this time." So I said forget it! But it's so yummy; toffee on the bottom, dark chocolate spread over the top, and ground almonds (I think) sprinkled over the top. I may have to call her and get the recipe anyway. If you want it, let me know!

    ReplyDelete

  57. Christmas treat? My hands-down favourite is my mum's Chocolate Hazelnut Cherry Rum Truffles, which are cute, addictive, and so so delicious!

    (They're also really rather complicated to make, which is why they're only a Christmas treat.)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Peppernuts - which aren't really nuts at all. My grandmother used to make them. They are really hard little cookie/biscuits - very hard to explain, but about the size of butter mints, if that makes sense. I may just have to try my hand at making them and post the recipe on my blog... eventually.

    ReplyDelete

  183. One secret recipe coming up: Snicker Salad, aka Superior Candy Apple Salad (1/2 the apples, twice the Snickers of the original)

    12 reg sized Snickers candy bars, chopped
    3-4 tart apples such as Granny Smith,
    peeled, cored chopped
    1 block of cream cheese, softened
    1 jar marshmallow creme - I use the bigger jar, but have used the smaller one when I couldn't find a big one
    1 large container Cool Whip, thawed. Again in a pinch you can use the smaller container.

    Beat together cream cheese, marshmallow cream, and cool whip. Pour over apples and snickers and fold in, mixing till all covered and smooth. You can add maraschino cherries if you want.

    Don't make too far ahead of time if serving guests. The candy bars will gradually melt into the dressing. It's every bit as good that way, but not as pretty. This stuff NEVER gets thrown away -- it's eaten to the last spoonful.

    Try it, you'll like it! :^)
