Happy Holidays!

I hope this newsletter finds you all happy and festive for the holidays. My wish is for all of you to relax, enjoy your family and friends. Enjoy all the festivities and yummy treats that come along with the holidays.

I encourage everyone to not only enjoy themselves, but as always to think of others that may not be as fortunate to have friends and family around. Remember to keep an eye open for your neighbor that may be alone, and offer happiness and support if it is excepted.

It is a wonderful time of year and I have been enjoying several evening rides to admire all the lights and decorations. I am still trying to decide if I prefer the white lights or the multi-colored lights! This has been an ongoing debate at my house for years.

I would like to share a recipe with you all for the holidays:

Peppermint Chocolate Bonbons
1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips ( you must use real chocolate)
1 Cup butter
1/2 Cup whipping cream
1 Cup unsifted powdered sugar
1/4 Teaspoon peppermint extract

Mix chocolate chips, butter, and cream in a heavy sauce pan
Place over very low heat and stir until chips and butter are melted and mixture is smooth and thick. remove from heat.
Beat in the powdered sugar until mixture is smooth again. Stir in the peppermint extract.
Cover and chill for 1-2 hours or until mixture is thick enough to shape or drop into small into small candy cups. Divide the mixture into 24 portions
Drop into paper bonbon cups or first roll into small balls before placing into cups.

Let me know what you think !!!
