Here's a golden oldie that was passed on to me by my wife. Her mom used to mix up this holiday favourite, and the best part is, you don't have to worry about turning the oven on.
½ cup Kahlua (or as a non-alcoholic substitute, chocolate syrup)
¼ cup light corn syrup
chopped candied cherries ¹/3 cup
¹/3 cup chopped golden raisins
1 cup powdered sugar (no lumps)
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2½ cups fine vanilla wafer crumbs
1 cup finely chopped pecans
No cooking! Blend sugar, cocoa, crumbs, and pecans. Combine mixtures. Shape into small balls. Roll in desired coating. Freeze or store in an airtight container. Makes four dozen.
Here's another quick and easy recipe, one that I made up all by myself, using my natural culinary instincts.
half cup of butter
two cups Smart Food White Chedder Popcorn
Cook up microwavable popcorn.
Add melted butter.
Mix in several handfuls of Smart Food White Cheddar Popcorn. Shake so the popcorn mixes together.
