A holiday of goodies

by Anne Mallory

One of the best things about the end of the treats. Is it any wonder we all gain a pound or twelve over the holidays with all the goodies abounding in all their goody goodness? Chocolate covered pretzels, shortbread, butter cookies, gingerbread, buckeye balls, pies...excuse me while I make a trip to the kitchen.

I recently discovered a sinful treat at that I want to share with everyone who craves delicious desserts: Caramel Shortbread Squares (topped with chocolate). They are incredible.

The Wet Noodle Posse website has some fabulous holiday treat recipes including Carrot Cake, Sugar Plums, Angel Delight, Rich Plum Pudding, Profiteroles and Christmas Wreaths. You can view and print them HERE.

What are your recent discoveries or favorite holiday treats? Tis the season to not worry about the waistline. ;)

I love macaroons. And they are so easy to make!

I love this recipe I got when I worked at the magazine that is delicious. It's brownies with marshmallows on top and chocolate on top of that. Yum!

Eggnog Bread Recipe:

1 large egg, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup eggnog
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 1/4 cup all purpose-flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, beat the egg with an electric mixer on low speed. Add the sugar, eggnog, melted butter, and rum, and mix until well blended. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the nutmeg. Add to the wet mixture all at once, mixing just until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Scrape into pan. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If the top is browning too quickly, lightly cover it with aluminum foil for the last 10 minutes or so of baking. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan and placing on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds good.
