Quick Holiday Treat!

Here is a really quick and easy holiday treat.

1 bag small square pretzles (Snyder's)
1 bag Rollo candies, remove the foil
pecan halves, or walnut halves, or (my fav) smoked salted almonds

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the pretzles 1/2 inch apart. Top each pretzle with a Rollo candy then place the cookie sheet in the oven until the candy has softened. Remove from oven and top with a nut. Cool and enjoy!

Taking Some Time Away...

I am taking some time away from cards for the holiday season. I will continue to keep busy crocheting afghans, baby blankets, flowers, hats, and scarves for local hospitals, cancer treatment centers and homeless shelters. This is a special way I give to my local community. I hope this holiday season you will find a joyful passion; sharing it with others.
