Homemade Hot Chocolate

(yummified! just like you remember as a child)

1/2 cup coffee creamer

1 Cup Nestle Quick

1 cup confectioners sugar

2 1/2 cups non-fat dried milk

miniature marshmallows (optional)

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. This mix makes an excellent Christmas present when given in a decorative storage container. Make sure to include the recipe and instructions for mixing. Mix 3-5 tablespoons in a cup of hot water, stir, and enjoy!

Pecan Butter Balls

(A wonderful holiday or anyday confection! These freeze well, so they're perfect for those make-ahead holiday goodies projects.)

2 cups finely chopped pecans

2 cups sifted flour

1 cup butter (two sticks)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

Chop pecans. Combine with flour and salt. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Combine with pecan mixture; mix until well blended. Gather into a ball. With floured hands, shape dough into one-inch balls. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 325 degrees F. for approximately 20 minutes. Cool completely. Roll in confectioners sugar.

2 cups all purpose flour

Hot Mulled Cider

(May be prepared in advance, refrigerated and reheated. Crock pots are handy for heating cider. If you wish, you may add 1 cup of bourbon or whiskey while simmering. Enjoy!)

9 whole cloves

4 cinnamon sticks

1 cup firmly-packed brown sugar

9 whole allspice (or ground equivalent)

1 gallon of apple cider (or juice)

2 lemons, thinly sliced (apples or oranges may be used)

Combine cider and sugar. Bring to a boil.

Add spices. Simmer 15 minutes. (Tie in a cheesecloth bag or add loose and strain before serving.)

Just before serving, remove spices. Garnish serving bowl or each mug with a slice of fruit.
