Yummy Treats and a New Painting!

Hello Everyone on this beautiful December day! At least it is beautiful in Florida. It is in the seventies here and gorgeous with a very blue sky with a few puffy clouds and sunny. It is a good day to be outside and I hope to decorate my porches later this afternoon. I want to share a couple of quick and easy, delicious Christmas treat recipes with you first. The top one is Crock pot Fudge. It can be put in the crock pot and left for 3 hours and you have delicious candy ready to eat. 
Crock Pot Fudge Recipe
Put the following ingredients in the Crock Pot in the order given and let cook on low for 3 hours.
Then stir all together and drop by spoonfuls into tiny Christmas paper cups.
2 jars honey roasted salted peanuts
1 package German Chocolate
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
1 package of White Almond bark.

Now, the above treats are called Reindeer Noses. You spread pretzels out on a cookie sheet. Put a white chocolate kiss in center and bake in a 275 oven til melted. Add an M and M candy after you take them out of oven. I didn't have the kisses, so I used little squares of white chocolate and turned the heat up a bit, then when soft, I sort of spread the white chocolate out with a knife. Not quite as pretty as the kiss would be, but still yummy.

Here is my latest watercolor painting of pink poinsettia flowers. Hope  you are enjoying a nice weekend wherever you are!


  1. So, Egretta, who is it that eats all those yummy treats? Not you, surely?

  2. Egretta,dear, you have abundant energy and far more talent. The poinsettia painting is wonderful. I can see it on a Christmas card.

  3. Both of the treat look so tempting! Thanks for sharing the recipe! And of course your painting is awesome!

  4. Your festive treats look yummy! The diet starts in the New Year!
