This Saltine Toffee is an all time favorite treat of ours…all year round!
Now that Thanksgiving is pretty much over…
C’mon, lets face it…you know as well as I do that Thanksgiving is over way before the day actually comes.
Thanksgiving gets lost in between Halloween and Christmas. Don’t ‘cha think?
I went into a large craft store over a week ago looking for a some Thanksgiving items and they had all but gone the way of the pilgrim. The powers that be give Thanksgiving planning a tiny window of opportunity and if you don’t sneak in when it’s open you are stuck in the cold world of leftover items and discount bins…that means 3 napkin rings, a pack of cupcake liners and some cinnamon pine cones. I challenge the MacGuyver-like people over at Real Simple to come up with something using just those items!
It is sort of a suckfest for those of us who don’t plan out our Thanksgiving tables 3 months ahead.
Sheesh. I know that some people really dig on Thanksgiving, but for me the turkey is not where it’s at.
So, since I am easily swayed by the folks behind Christmas marketing, I will move on to Christmas.
It is the holiday of the cookie.
So, by default, it’s the most most wonderful time of the year!
I will not pledge to you that I will have a cookie recipe a day or any nonsense that both you and I know I am not capable of.
But, I will vow to share as many cookies with you as possible.
We’ll do this ~ some new cookies and some all-time favorites that always end up on my Christmas cookie platter.
And for all of you that do cookie exchanges, there will be a few ideas for ya!
Oh yeah, and on that note…do you know that I have NEVER been invited to a cookie exchange?
Just thought I would share that sad fact.
So, my for first sweet treat of the month I will share with you an oldie….but a goody! I started making this candy at holiday time because it’s super easy, super tasty and a favorite of my oldest son.
It has the whole salty-sweet, buttery, chocolate thing going on.
