Menu December 31

I've been a little absent during December but we were busy with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas including lots of baking...
I made these Buckeye Brownies for an event at church and they were met with rave reviews. It's like a peanut butter ball on top of brownies so absolute deliciousness!
I ended up being able to make four different kinds of Christmas cookies this year: Hot Cocoa Cookies, Peanut Butter Balls, Peanut Blossoms and Soft Gingersnaps.
We also made this Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix to enjoy after we drove around looking at Christmas lights. I agree that it is the white chocolate chips that really put this over the top. I want to try substituting butterscotch chips for the white chocolate chips and see what that does.
And to offset all that sugar and sweetness I also made a few batches of muffins including these Pumpkin Cranberry ones.

On the Menu...
Snacky foods for New Years Eve
Toscana Soup
Out to Eat
Sweet Hawaiian Pizza
French Toast
