If there’s ever a cookie that screams “Christmas” it has to be a White Chocolate & Dried Cranberry Cookie. And so I dutifully waited until after Thanksgiving to post these lovelies.
Freshly popped popcorn from the stove-top or an air popper, maybe with a touch of butter & a little salt – is there anything better? Well, yeah, there is! Popcorn tossed with goodies (especially the m&m’s) and drizzled with white chocolate. Now you’re talking! And here it is, my White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn Party Mix.
I try to make this cake. Buche de Noel Yule Log, from Martha Stewart’s 2003 Christmas Book, every Christmas Season. She calls it Birch de Noel, and I always thought it was fitting because up “Nord” here in Minnesota, all the logs are blanketed in snow through the winter season. You betcha! I guess it appeals to the realist in me, though this dessert is pure fantasy!
If you want to feel like you’ve died and gone to heaven, make this White Chocolate Raspberry Bread Pudding with Amaretto White Chocolate Sauce. Seriously. Well, maybe you’ll want to skip the “died” part and just have heaven on earth. This is a want to lick your plate clean dessert perfect for any special occasion and fabulous for a special holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve/Day.
These Black & White Biscotti have become a family fave. I originally started making them for Christmas cookie trays (even though we have not a drop of Italian in our family tree) partially because they’re insanely good and partially because they travel and/or ship so well. Now I just make them anytime I have an urge.
