Some Fun Christmas Recipe Links

It’s a cold, wet, and dreary day here today so I am staying indoors and doing some online Christmas shopping, reading blogs, wrapping presents, and browsing the internet.   Here are just a few of the things I found that I either want to make, buy, enjoy, or simply admire.


How cute are these SNOWMEN CUPCAKES?  I found them at DeviantartChristmas Fun with colored icing and marzipan.  And it looks like one of the Snowmen hats is made out of part of an Oreo cookie and a mini Oreo on top of that. Wish I liked coconut more than I do.  Too cute.


These HAM AND CHEESE SANDWICHIES, compliments of BUTTERYUM,  would be so great to serve at a party. 



Mmmm…PEPPERMINT MOCHA FUDGE!  This can be found over at Paris Pastry.


Our Best Bites always has the best recipes.  I love browsing this blog.  This is CINNAMON-CARAMEL-CORN-WITH-PECANS AND WHITE CHOCOLATE.


Carla over at Cosmo Girl’s Emporium posted this delightful adult beverage last week.  A CANDY CANE COCKTAIL IS my kind of martini fun!


And this has to be the most elaborate BOUCHE DE NOEL I have ever seen.  I found it at Victor Benes Bakery.  Alas, the European bakery that created this masterpiece is located in Los Angeles  which is a tad too far away for me.  But I can certainly admire from afar can’t I?

That Peppermint Mocha Fudge looked delicious! I could wash it down with the Candy Cane Cocktail :)
Have a great week.

Oh Lisa, I love coconut, my favorite cupcake, and these beauties are the prettiest ever. I could dive right into that ham and cheese too. I am a popcorn lover too. I love Dale and Thomas (I think that’s the name). They have some great ones.

Oh, I have "no food" around right now and those little sandwiches are making me drool.
TMI I know. Sorry.
Bonne Semaine~

Mmmm . . . I saw "recipes" and I came a runnin', Lisa!!! As usual, you did not disappoint. I will definitely be visiting some of the sites you listed and testing out some new recipes.

And I'm glad to see the Candy Cane Martini I shared made your list. Have you tried it???? ;o) I saw a similar recipe made with vanilla vodka and peppermint schnapps. That might be even better. I'll do some testing and let ya know ;o)

As soon as I'm done with all of my Christmas shopping I think I'll need one of those candy cane cocktails!

So sorry I missed this post the first time around. I need to make those yummy hot ham and cheese sandwiches again - they're so darn good.

Take care,
