Bring a little holiday cheer to the classic Rice Krispies Treat. Dipped in a little white chocolate and then candy cane powdered sugar, it’s holiday heaven. It’s also little-chef friendly; let them join in the fun.
To make the rice krispie treats:
Grab a medium-sized sauce pan, and melt the butter over medium heat. Add all the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Remove the marshmallow mixture from the heat. Add the rice krispie cereal and stir until combined. Spread over a buttered baking sheet.
I pushed the rice krispies into half of the baking sheet, so it would be squared on one end, and the freehand ended the rectangle. Let cool for 1 hour.
Cut the rice krispie treats into 1 1/2-inch strips, then into squares. I was able to get 20 rice krispie treats.
To make the candy cane dip:
Grab 2 Ziploc bags, add the powdered sugar and candy canes. Crush and shake.
Over a double boiler, melt 3 blocks (3 ounces each) of the white chocolate (or use a microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring in between). Dip one end of each square into the chocolate. Then into the candy cane powdered sugar. Using your hand, gently push the candy cane sugar into the treat to make sure it’s stuck to the chocolate.
Set back on the baking sheet, making sure they don’t touch another treat. Let cool for another hour.
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
