This is the best new recipe that I've gotten this year. It is so simple and everyone loves them. You lay your pretzels on a cookie sheet. Put a Rolo on top of each one. Put them in the oven at 200 degrees for about 2 minutes or until the chocolate looks shiny. Take them out and press a pecan half in each one. They are like turtle candies. Put them in the fridge for 5 min. or so to harden. This is a new Christmas cookie recipe that I got out of this month's Taste of Home magazine. I really liked the cookies even without the frosting. They use powdered sugar instead of granulated. The frosting is different too in that it uses meringue powder and corn syrup among other things. I started playing with the frosting on my last cookie and got a neat tie dye effect. Check out the second cookie picture on the right hand bottom. I think I'll make some more and really play with the icing some more. I was just too tired tonight. FYI cereal bags make great waxed paper to put your cookies on or use as dividers between layers of cookies or candy.
This one you do the same as above, except use Hershey Kisses and M and M's. I used the "Holiday" mint M and M's.
We have a potluck tomorrow at work and these three things are what I am taking. I want to make some more stuff on Friday night and hopefully get my Christmas cards done (make that STARTED and done). We have our first Christmas on Saturday with Tim's family. I still have some gifts to get ready for that also.
