Snowball Cookies rolled in flaked coconut and piled in a white ceramic bowl

Christmas Baking Frenzy- Day 13!!

On the 13th day of baking The Olive Blogger gave to me..a post with a delicious Snowball recipe!!!

It has been so much fun posting for you guys everyday, and I am sad to say that today is the final day of the 13 days (although that doesn’t mean I won’t keep posting yummy treats for you to enjoy!). I saved this recipe for the last day knowing how much ya’ll would enjoy it!

The Snowball is a classic goodie ball from Newfoundland (two of our bakers are “Newfie” so you know it’s a GOOD one!). It is loaded with coconut, oats and a hint of cocoa, and has a delicious fudgey center! This was my first year actually eating them (if you recall from a previous post I was not a huge coconut fan) and let’s just say that I may need to make more to replenish my supply for my goodie trays…UH-OH!!!

This is a great one to have the kiddos help out with, as it requires a final rolling in coconut to coat the outside, and how much fun they’ll have! The picture below shows our littlest helper having some fun with the coconut after all the rolling was done. I guarantee that this final recipe will be in your top three, and hope that you enjoy it every bit as much as I do!

We are having our annual Christmas party with friends today, so I will be sure to let ya’ll know what they thought of all the cookies, bars and other goodies we have made over the last 13 days together! And with that, I sign off for a couple days so I can go and recharge and enjoy what the Christmas season has to offer <3

Christmas Baking Frenzy- Day 10!

Where has the time gone!? We are already on Day 10, which means after today you have 3 delicious posts left to drool over! What has been your favourite one so far? I love hearing your stories as you follow along and make the cookie/bar of the day!

Today is another “classic” for our family! This is one my sister does every year, and since I have recently started eating coconut (in the past two years!) it is one I now LOVE! After today’s post you will be able to make Magic Bars (which are really whatever you want them to be as you can add or take away anything you like!). There are a gazillion variations on this one, but I am only going to post the one we make year after year, the one I KNOW everyone loves!

Did you like the stocking stuffer ideas for women yesterday? Today I will give you some ideas for the man on your list! I hope you enjoy!

Christmas Baking Frenzy- Day 9!!

Didn’t you just LOVE those sugar cookies yesterday?! Honestly, I keep on looking at them every time I open the freezer and they just make me smile they are so darn cute!

So what’s on the list for today? How about a really easy Saltine Toffee Bar!? There are only five ingredients to this one, making them a great addition to your baking! They are so simple to make and taste so incredibly yummy I guarantee you will make them year after year (and probably outside of the Christmas season as well)!!

So, let’s get started so you can have these to serve up in no time!
