The "sweets" table!
We had our first annual Holiday Open House this past weekend for some friends and family! I have been wanting to do this for so many years, but we've never had a place that could really accommodate that many people. I went a little overboard on the desserts, especially considering we had our first real snow that morning so several guests had to cancel! We had savory food as well, but I'm just sharing the desserts - some of which are my favorite holiday recipes, some of which are new and will be posted next week. We had such a great time and hope our guests did as well! :)
The Trio of Quick Breads:
Gingerbread Cookies (recipe to be posted soon!)
Oreo Truffles (I will post some tips for an easier way to make these soon!)
Homemade Vanilla Marshmallows (I had a make-your-own hot cocoa station - just packets of cocoa with hot water in a carafe and candy canes to swirl around - this was a BIG hit!)
Brown Sugar and Spice Mitten Cookies (recipe coming soon!), behind those are the chocolate/toasted coconut covered homemade marshmallows!
it just might happen:
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We leave tomorrow for our first Christmas celebration!
