The party is over…

and it was so much fun.  The hostess had her home beautifully decorated.  The refreshment table was loaded with all kinds of goodies, hot cocoa and a lovely punch!  Chex mix, chocolates and lots of different kinds of cookies.  There was also some popcorn that tasted like it was dipped in white chocolate coating.  Thank you Liz!!  I had a wonderful time at your cookie exchange.

For some reason I can never get a good picture in my kitchen.  Anyway, here is my loot below.

The bag has big pieces of fudge with walnuts in it.  The box has chocolates.  One bag has 7 layer cookies and there are sugar cookies shaped like poinsettias, oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chunks, chocolate mint cookies with filling and the cookies made with Rolo candy, pretzels and pecan halves.  I love that recipe and it is so easy.

Rolos Cookies

From my friend Sandi.

•1 bag Rolo’s chocolates
•Mini pretzel twists
•Pecan halves

Lay pretzels on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place 1 Rolo chocolate on top of each pretzel. Place in a 250 degree oven for 3-4 minutes until chocolates are soft. Remove from oven and press a pecan half into each softened chocolate. Cool and remove from pan.

Easy as can be and so easy to make.  Delicious.

The hostess gift last night was a bottle of hand sanitizer .

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Stay safe and be happy!!
