Holiday Treats

Every Christmas I like to make something special to give to the mailman, coworkers, and people who stop by. Quite often I make fudge, and sometimes homemade bread or jams. This year I wanted to do something different, and I remembered this cashew brittle that my husband and I got when we were visiting the Amish country in northern Indiana. It was so good, so I got a recipe from southernfood.about.com. It was very easy, though it took awhile to bring the candy to the correct temperature. When it had cooled,, I packaged it up in cello bags and tied it off with baker's twine. I made a tag with a Papertrey Ink stamp, added some ribbon and a bell. It looks very festive sitting in a basket by the door waiting to be handed out to friends. Now if we can just stay out of it....


  1. Looks yummy, Cindy. I'll have to make some.

  2. Mmmm Mmmm good..what a great idea! I woke up with a start this morning thinking..OMG I bet Cindy thinks I'm so bossy telling her I want to see big pictures. I get so excited when I know something new that I want to share it and......half the time it comes out like I'm a Miss Know it All. Been called that before. lol So please except my apology if I came across that way it certainly wasn't my intention!! Have a wonderful day friend. xoso Sandy
