WIAW - Christmas treats edition

Wednesday, December 17, 2014



Good morning all! Yesterday I spent the day making treats with a friend to give out to the neighbors. We made a whole bunch of goodies in only a few hours and had fun doing it! Way more fun doing it with a friend than doing it alone!

I need to start gifting them because these cute tins are taking up a lot of space in my fridge!

 

Here is a list of what we made and then a recipe you don't want to miss!
 
Chocolate Pretzels
Snickerdoodles
Peanut Butter cookies with kisses
Oreo cookie balls
Cheesecake balls

 
 
 
 
My favorite recipe of all is the Cheesecake ball, and I have never made them for anyone who hasn't fallen in love with them :)
 
You can find the recipe on the Wilton site, here, or read below :)

 
 
Ingredients
 
8 oz. softened cream cheese
12 oz bag of wilton candy melts
(yesterday I used white chocolate chips instead and didn't notice a difference)
Graham cracker crumbs
 
Directions
 
Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate.  Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese and continue to mix until mixed through.
Pour into a baking pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. The longer the better, if it isn't nice and firm it doesn't take long before it gets sticky and is hard to roll into balls.
Once chilled, roll into 1 inch balls then roll in graham cracker crumbs.
 
The Wilton recipe is for cheesecake pops, but I have always just made them for a tray or boxed them up for a gift. If you were hosting, these would be cute as pops with a little red or green sugar mixed in to the graham crackers for a festive treat. These taste just like cheesecake and they are so easy to make! You can't beat a 3 ingredient no bake recipe! If you like cheesecake you should, for sure, make these for your holiday parties this year!
 
Linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons today!

Have a great Wednesday!

  2. I love the idea of making treats with a friend. I will have to do that one of these years. A few years ago I participated in a cookie exchange and ended up with waaaay too many cookies.
