This is one of our favorite recipes for a cold winter day . There’s not much prep time involved. I always keep the ingredients on hand and make it if I’m short on time. Rick loves to use the leftovers to take to work the next few days.
This chili is my husband’s favorite, and it’s quite original! I never had chili growing up. I’d only heard stories of chili con carne my dad had been served while he was in the Navy; being from the North, I thought he was saying “chili corn carne.”… hence the addition of corn in this chili recipe!
My husband loved it and the kids did, too, and that’s been a favorite main dish for 27 years now. I hope you will enjoy it, too.
Peanut Butter Christmas Kiss Cookies have been a long-time Christmas cookie tradition in our home for many, many years. Everyone looks forward to these special sweet treats! This version of the recipe includes colored sprinkles and peppermint kisses!
This is a great cookie recipe for kids to make with you, too, because they can easily help with many of the steps…such as rolling the dough into balls, coating the balls with sugar or sprinkles, unwrapping the chocolate kisses, and also adding the kisses to the cookies.
So, gather your little ones in the kitchen and make some Christmas memories!
Here’s the recipe.
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Peppermint Hershey’s kisses (any kind work, if you don’t care for peppermint)
‘Tis the season for so many wonderful things. Every day in December seems to bring about some sort of special activity, festive sounds, nostalgic feelings, or sweet treats to eat! It really is a special time of the year.
Some of my grandkids were with me last week, so we decided to make these yummy chocolate-dipped pretzels.
