    Uber yummy and simple to do!

    Caramel Pecan Pretzel Bites

    ~1 bag Rold Gold Butter Checkers (mini pretzel twists will work as well)
    ~1 package Rolo caramels (63 pieces)
    ~pecan halves

    Arrange whole butter checkers or pretzels on a cookie sheet. Unwrap Rolos and place one on each pretzel, then place in a 200* oven for 4 minutes or until the chocolate coating is melted and the caramel is soft. Remove from the oven and immediately press a pecan half into each melted Rolo. Allow to cool and set completely before removing to an airtight container or zippered storage bag. Makes 63 pieces.

    **You can also melt Hershey's kisses (hugs look really nice) and press red and/or green M&M's into the melted kiss, or try the new cheesecake kisses and press a walnut or pecan half into that. Very delish!

    pre-purchase favorite cookies, or pretzels or fruit. Or make your own cookie.
    make a chocolate fondue sauce
    dip items halfway in chocolate. For some fruit, you may want to dip the whole thing in chocolate.
    put on wax paper to cool and let chocolate harden

    Depending on what was dipped you can top with more stuff like chopped nuts, finely chopped candy cane, toffee nibs + or sprinkles.

    Just a few ideas to add to the dipped items:
    Oreo + candy cane
    pretzel + toffee
    banana dipped entirely in chocolate + toasted hazelnuts

    You can take Pillsbury crescent rolls and place a Hershey's kiss in the center. Roll the crescent around the kiss, sprinkle with colored sugar and bake.
    Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
    CK is the one!!

    as of 6/17/10 - I have to add Joico!

    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous

    When I was in school they taught us to make Stained Glass Cookies for Christmas, with crushed Lifesavers candies. Every kid I knew was obsessed with making them. :) Here's a recipe from Simply Recipes that looks about right, though there are other similar ones at Martha Stewart or Sunset Magazine. The recipes specify using cookie cutters, but we also used to just roll the dough into long "snakes" and use them to freeform shapes to fill with the candies. It was tons of fun.
