I thought I would post my Mom's famous recipes (thanks for letting me share, Mama!) that I promised while I wait! It's funny, instead of a cookbook, I reference this stack of e-mails filled with recipes from my Mom.
I'll be sitting at work on any given day, trying to come up with something to make for dinner, a party, etc., and so knowing she'll never disappoint, I'll shoot her a quick e-mail asking for help. Usually followed up with a call from the grocery store later that night asking something like, "Where the heck do they keep the vanilla extract???". So here are a few of my favorite Christmas treats that I've enjoyed during the holiday season for as long as I can remember. She's given me one heck of a jump start when it comes to holiday-goodie-making traditions.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees
1 stick butter
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1-2 tablespoons Lawry's seasoned salt
6 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Corn Chex
2-3 Cups Wheat Chex
Melt butter in large roasting pan
Mix Worcestershire sauce and seasoned salt
Add Chex, pretzels and peanuts
Mix until thoroughly coated
Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes
Cool on paper towels
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Melt 2 bags of white chocolate chips in microwave at 1 minute intervals, stirring well in between - usually takes about 2 1/2 minutes
Assemble peanut butter crackers (2 sleeves of Ritz Crackers for every 2 bags of white chocolate chips is usually how it works out)
Using tongs, coat peanut butter crackers completely in melted white chocolate
Let harden on wax paper
Melt 2 bags of butterscotch chips in microwave at 1 minute intervals, stirring well in between - usually takes 2 1/2 minutes
Mix in about 3 cups of Chow Mein Noodles and 1 cup of cocktail peanuts into melted butterscotch chips
Scoop out spoonfuls and let harden on wax paper
Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend!!!!!
