In A Food Mood: Goodies

I don't know about you but I am starting to think about all the goodies I want to make for Christmas. I stumbled across this recipe, and this one. Both of these are now on my list. For the record, I don't own any bourbon so I told my mom she had to bring some over. My step-dad is from Kentucky so they always have bourbon in the house. Nuff said.

Here is a recipe from my collection you might like to make this Christmas! It's a favorite at our house!

Chocolate Chip Toffee Grahams

11 whole graham crackers broken into squares
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (chop in this and kids can help!)
1 (6 oz) pkg mini chocolate chips

Arrange graham cracker squares in a single layer in a cookie sheet with rim lined with foil for easier cleanup.
Combine butter and sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Bring to a boil and boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and pecans. Pour over graham crackers and spread evenly to edges of pan. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with mini chips. Cool five minutes, separate cookies and transfer to waxed paper lined cookie sheets. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens. Store between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container. Makes 2 dozen.

And finally, a shameless plug for my Christmas ebook, A Recipe For Christmas Joy. I have tons of recipes in it for everything from Christmas dinner to goodies to gifts you can give from your kitchen, not to mention our family's favorite traditions that you can implement at your house! And the best part is, it's a download so you get it as a file right away-- no waiting for shipping! I just love instant gratification!

I just recently made some coffee toffee cupcakes with coffee frosting and thought that they were very good, so I will have to try out this recipe as well. Thanks so much for sharing it!!
