Holiday Recipe Swap Starts Today!!!

Happy Friday Peeps!!

I am joining my new friend Colleen from "and baby makes five" in doing a fun Holiday Recipe Swap! It starts today, so be sure to click on the link at the right of this post to visit her blog! She has wonderful craft tutorials and a lovely home as well as more great recipes for you to check out! Each Friday, there will be new ones posted! Thanks Colleen for starting the fun! I am always on the lookout for new simple recipes to try especially this time of year!

I have a great cheese ball recipe for you to try today. I am sorry that I don't have a picture of it. In the future, I will try to have photos along with the recipe. :) This is a great one to bring to an ornament exchange, or to make when those wonderful friends stop by over the holiday season. I hope you like it!

Today I am thankful for making new friends through my blog, the fresh autumn air coming in through a crack in my kitchen window, and for the ability to laugh at myself. If not for that, life would just be tougher!!

12 oz Package mini semi sweet choc. chips
12 oz Package peppermint candies crushed

Chocolate sugar wafers

*Blend chocolate chips, peppermint candies and cream cheese together: roll in pecans and serve with chocolate sugar wafers

  1. Oh, how I love your wit, my dear! Thank goodness for laughter, right?

    This recipe is definitely going to get made at my house this Christmas! No doubt about it. It sounds sinfully delicious ... and festive too. Thanks so much for sharing it with us all.

    I'm so glad we're getting to know each other ;)

  4. I came over from Colleen's blog - I LOVE your recipe! Sounds delicious! I'll be spending the holidays out-of-state with family, and I'd love to try this out while I'm there - they always have lots of guests and I was hoping for some new ideas! Many thanks for this one!

    Oh, and I read Colleen's comment above - a snowman wreath? Sounds delightful - any photos forthcoming (I hope, I hope!) And maybe even a tutorial? ***Wishing now***
