Past few days I saw 2 recipes in the forums that looked pretty good , but I didn't write them down unsure.gif and now I don't remember where I saw them..and I figure maybe others would like to share their favorites for the holiday season?

Death By chocolate always made everyone happy!! It's been a while since I made it but it's like make chocolate cake in a 9X13 pan cool it and poke holes in it with a fork, cut it into 1" cubes, pour on 1 cup Amareto (or coffee brandy) whatever you can afford, Amaretto was a little pricey for me. Any way layer it in a big bowl with cool whip, add chocolate chips to the cool whip layers (chips were too much for me) and that's about it.

Here's a little more to the recipe that he added later:


Thinking about this I think you make chocolate pudding and make layers with it also, when you get done it will be a big creamy mess that will fix anyones chocolate needs!! wink.gif

The worst thing about holidays is having to choose between pumpkin pie and pecan pie when there's just not room for both.

And then in one of those little recipe books in the line at the grocery store, I found a recipe for pumpkin pecan pie. It's a pumpkin pie with a layer of pecan on top.

Can this Frankenstein pie possibly taste good? I'm going to find out....

This is super easy and my sons love it:

Triple-Layer Chocolate Pie

2 packages (3.9 oz. each) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk
1 Oreo Pie Crust (6 oz.)
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip Topping, thawed & divided into two parts

Beat pudding mixes and milk in large bowl with whisk for 2 mins. (mixture will be thick)

Spread 1 & 1/2 cups pudding onto bottom of crust. Stir half the cool whip into remaining pudding. Spread over layer in crust. Top with remaining cool whip.

Refrigerate for at least 3 hours but I prefer mine frozen. You may want to try it both ways.

This is an easier version of my Mom's Mulled Cider recipe and has a really good
taste besides having next to no calories! You can double the serving
amounts (or triple, etc.) by just doubling the amount of mixture you use.
Add a cinnamon stick to give it great aroma!

Hot Spiced Tea

1 tub Crystal Lite Natural Lemon Flavor Iced Tea Mix
1 tub Crystal Lite Lemonade Flavor drink mix
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Mix all ingredients. Store in tightly covered jar at room temperature. For single
serving, stir 3/4 cup boiling water into 1/2 tsp. tea mix in mug. (This may not
seem like much but the flavor will be quite strong..try this amount first before
adding any additional).

Oh! Raspberry Apple Cider is one of my fav hot drinks around this time of year

You need apple cider and a packet of frozen raspberries. Heat the cider in a pot on the stove and add the raspberries. Once it's heated to your desired temperature, sieve out the raspberry bits and enjoy!

Twice baked yams

Bake small to medium yams- 8-10 for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Let cool, then slice each one in half, and scoop out cooked yam leaving shell intact (to be used again).

Mix yam puree with 1 package of cream cheese and 1/2 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed is best).

Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. cloves, 1/2 tsp. ginger, and 1/2 tsp. black pepper.

Whip all ingredients until smooth and fluffy.

Carefully re-fill yam 'skins' with mixture, ( it will be more than original amount in each).

Put on ungreased baking sheet, and re-bake for 10 minutes in 400 degree oven.

Add garnish of orange zest (grated orange peel) before serving , if desired.

I've made these for the past couple of years and people seem to love them.

Rum Balls

60 Nilla Wafers, finely crushed (about 2 1/2 cups of crumbs)
1 cup powered sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margerine, melted
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
1/4 cup rum (you can substitue rum flavoring for the rum but I haven't tried it.
I would start with 1/2 tsp. and then taste the mixture. If you think
it needs more, add another 1/4 tsp until you satisfied with the taste.)
1 cup Baker's Angel Flake Coconut, toasted

Mix wafer crumbs, sugar, pecans, butter, corn syrup and cocoa

Dissolve instant coffee granules in rum. Add to crumb mixture and mix well.
Let stand 15 minutes.

Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in coconut. Place in air-tight container
with sheet of wax paper between each layer. Store at room temperature.

You can substitute sliced almonds or chocolate sprinkles for the coconut.

The flavor of these improves the longer it's stored!

Peppermint Bark Candy

This is very easy to make and quite tasty. I have to admit the best thing
about this recipe was pounding the peppermint with a hammer (be sure and
put it between 2 layers of wax or parchment paper first)

1 package (160oz.) vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), broken
into pieces.
24 hard peppermint candies

Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper, aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Place the candy coating in a microwavable-safe bowl and microwave
uncovered on high 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until almost
melted. Stir until smooth.

Place peppermint candies between 2 layers of wax or parchment paper and
fold the edges so none will come out while crushing. You can use any heavy
piece of kitchen equipment (I prefer a hammer rolleyes.gif ) like the bottom of a pan,
to pound the candy until crushed. It's better to have part of them finely
crushed with some larger pieces left which makes for a prettier candy.

Stir crushed candy into melted vanilla coating and pour onto cookie sheet.
Let stand until cool and hardened, about 1 hour. I like to hurry the process
by putting the pan into the fridge for about 30 minutes. When hardened,
break into pieces and store in air tight container at room temperature.

These make a nice gift placed into a glass or clear plastic container.
You can substitute chocolate candy coating for the vanilla if you prefer
chocolate.
