Christmas Goodies

I know it's been FOREVER since I posted, but I've been a little busy with the holidays and all. I'm sorry! To make up for it, this is the first of many blogs I will be posting in the near future! 

Now let's get onto the goodies!!

For the past few years, I've gone crazy making goodies to give away (and eat too...) for the holidays. Proof can be found here and here! :)

I didn't really have much planned for this year, but I woke up one Saturday and decided I was going to make a thing or two. Quickly, the thing or two turned into eight, yes EIGHT hours of baking!!! I was very tired, but super happy with the outcome.

Most of the goodies are things I've made before, but I ventured into something new too and am glad I did! Now take a look at all the goodies I made.

The Goods for EVERYTHING!!!
Sorry, I'm not listing it all...

First up I made the Red Velvet Cake for the Cake Truffles.
(Note: Cake Truffles are previously known as Cake Balls...)

Mixing the cake.

Cake ready to be baked.

Now crumbling it up after baking!

There should have been a picture mixing the frosting in, 
but I fail! :( I'm sorry!

The rolled out truffles before the candy coating.

Next up, was the fudge!
I made one batch and did half with nuts and half without.

Butter, Chocolate Chips and Vanilla


Melted Marshmallows and Water


Sugar and Evaporated Milk



I'm sorry ... 
I fail again. I don't have a finished picture of either fudge! :(

I missed the fudge picture because 
I was SO excited to make Spritz cookies!!!

They are so good, but I never think to make them 
any other time of the year. I should though!

After the Spritz cookies I moved onto Chocolate Chip.

They will always be a favorite or mine. 
And others seem to enjoy them as well!

Last, and certainly not least was something I'd never made.
 I ventured into...

Gingerbread Cookies!!
(A much more detailed post about this is coming SOON!)

I may make one more batch of something before going back to work in the next few days. If so - look for a post on those in the near future as well.

I hope you all got to enjoy some holiday goodies this year!  

Happy Holidays!
