Truffles. Make them big from chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk.


You can flatten them or roll into balls. You can decorate them with some splattering of red and green icing. You can do tons of things with truffles!

These are so easy. Just take pretzels in the shapes of bows, place a Hershey kiss on top, place in the oven for a few minutes until the chocolate just starts to melt, take out and put a green or red M&M on top.

We call these cookies Christmas Buttons. You take sugar cookie dough (homemade, a pouch mix or already made in the grocery dairy case) and roll the dough into 1" balls. Roll a dozen in red decorating sugar and bake according to package or recipe directions.


Then roll a dozen in green decorating sugar and bake according to directions. Keep going until all the dough is used up. The cookies flatten while baking. They're easy to make and festive to look at on a plate.

Hi, I love attending Christmas Cookie exchanges but my friends and I always get disappointed when so many have put time and effort to make something pretty and then one or two people end up contributing some cookies that look like they took 5 minutes to make. So here is an easy recipe, that makes tons and tons of cookies and are absolutely beautiful as well as tasty!
1 cup butter flavored shortening
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
sugar for coating
small red and green gumdrops (bell shaped)

Cream together shortening, sugar, eggs, oil, salt and vanilla. Sift all dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Roll into small one-inch balls and roll in sugar. Press one gumdrop in center of each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Should make close to 100 cookies.

Peanut Butter Ritz:

Place a bag of milk chocolate in microwave, add a little bit of olive oil to make the chocolate look shiny, and melt chocolate.


Take two Ritz Crackers and lightly cover them with a peanut butter of your choice on one side.
Put the two peanut butter sides together and once they are stuck together dip and cover entire cookie with chocolate.
After the Ritz peanut butter crackers are covered in chocolate, sprinkle cookies with Christmas colored sprinkles, place cookies on wax paper, and let cool.
