Sweets & the Holiday Season

Hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday Season, I love all this cool weather we're having,don't you? I started my candy making and some of my baking. When I'm done I'll be making "goodies trays" for family and friends.
Take a peek!!
My famous peanut butter balls, these are always a hit.
Shortbread Snowball cookies, my husbands favorite~!
These yummy things, are Butterscotch haystacks.
I'm sampling one right now, tasty! I usually make all my candy first. then next week I'll do all the baking of bars and cookies. :)
Oh, my gosh! have you made these "cake balls"?
They are so "delish" and so easy to make.
Who? doesn't like Peanut butter cookies?
This is just my first batch.I like mine crispy. I'll be making one more next week. I'll show you my goodie trays next week, when I put them all together.
I wish you could smell the kitchen right now,it smells like Chocolate & Goodness.
It's getting closer, hope you're almost done shopping and wrapping. So, you can make time for some holiday baking!
So long for now,And to all a goodnight!!!!....
Merry Kissmas!
