Quick Christmas Treats

Posted on
We headed to a cookie exchange last week, & my daughter & I came up with these cute babies.
They were so fun to make with kids, & honestly these were so quick. Talk about instant gratification – the majority of our time was spent unwrapping the candies!
We initially saw a similar idea on pinterest with rolos, but decided to take them a different direction. We headed to a cookie exchange last week Quick Christmas TreatsSmall pretzels. (Traditional pretzel shape, or square mesh shape)
Hershey’s kisses
Candy canes – crushed

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Heat panggangan to 350*
Lay out pretzels on baking sheet, & place 1 unwrapped caramel on top of each pretzel.
Bake for 3-5 minutes (until caramel begins to melt but isn’t 100% melted)
Remove from oven.
Place 1 unwrapped Hershey’s kiss on top of each caramel.
Press kiss into caramel to spread the melted caramel around.
Place in panggangan for 1-2 minutes, until chocolate has melted.
Top with starlight mint OR, using small spoon, flatten kiss, sprinkle with crushed candy canes or sprinkles.

Allow to cool.

Note: After using starlight mints, we realized that the mints are a little ‘large’ & difficult to consume.  Crushed candy canes add the taste & color of Christmas without overpowering the chocolatey, caramel & crunchy/salty combination.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
