Gluten-Free Almond Holiday Drop Cookies Recipe

Notes:

• These are amazing!! I do not “need” to eat gluten-free, and can usually tell the difference between a gluten-free cookie and non-gluten-free cookie. With this drop cookie, the almond flour dough tastes better than a white-flour cookie!

• These Gluten-Free Almond Holiday Drop Cookies are very easy to make. The only real negative is they do not hold up for a long time – two days, tops.

• The goal for a gluten-free dough is to look as close to a glutenous flour dough as possible. And this one sure does.

• These spread and bake flat, so make sure you stagger the dough-drop.

Boozy Chocolate Christmas Mice Recipe

Notes:

• You can use bourbon or whiskey to make these.

• Make certain the cherries are well drained, and dried. The chocolate will have a difficult time sticking otherwise.

• While this is a FAST little project, you must remember to infuse your maraschino cherries at least two days in advance.

• There will be 25-27 maraschino cherries in a 10-ounce jar. YMMV depending on brand, and size of cherries.

• If you are not sure how fast the candy melts in your local grocery store turnover, buy some Wilton chocolates. They are a great consistency and generally easier to work with.

• If your chocolate melts are not smoothing out as you would like, add a touch of vegetable oil and heat again (this would be the third round).

• My niece has been making these for years. She said she has tried just about everything under the sun, but never found anything that made good whiskers.

• The eyes are optional on the mice. If you do them, make sure you place a dark dot inside the whites of their eyes (heh). Otherwise, it is going to look creepy.

• You can use small candy eyes if you prefer, just adhere them with a dab of melted chocolate.

• These will last up to a week as long as you are not making dramatic temperature changes. Temp changes are the enemy of chocolate.

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Bites Recipe

Notes:

• This recipe is made with cake mix straight from the box. If you are worried about that, you can lay the cake mix out on a flat tray and toast it in the oven for 15 minutes (350°F). If you do choose to do this, allow the cake mix to cool completely before making the recipe.

• My niece and I made a few versions of this, and this one was our favorite! The chocolate and raspberry just work well together.

• While you can find the raspberry jelly candies at any fine chocolatier, the truth is the $2.99 lb version sold in the candy aisle or bulk food section of your grocery store will work just as well.

• One of my favorite places to get different sprinkles/jimmies is at our local Amish and Mennonite grocery stores. They have a huge selection prepacked, and some of them I have never seen anywhere else. You may want to check your local store!
