I can't be trusted with chocolate

I love chocolate, a blanket statement for sure. These are a few of my traditional Christmas recipes. I make these to take to my neighbors, I only dare keep a few for myself. I can't be trusted with chocolate in the house.

192550~Tablespoon-Lying-on-Pan-of-Melted-Couverture-Posters Cranberry Chocolates

35 -40 pieces

2 cups dark or chocolate

1 cup dried cranberries

1 cup walnut pieces

Melt chocolate in double boiler.

Fold in cranberries and walnuts until they are coated in chocolate.

Drop teaspoonfuls of mixture onto wax-paper covered baking sheets refrigerator until hardened.



1 cup sugar

1 cup white Karo syrup

2 cups peanut butter (chunky)

4 cups corn flakes

Bring sugar and syrup to a boil,(just to a boil)

Remove from heat

add Peanut Butter

Pour over cornflakes

Roll into balls

When set dip in Almond Bark if desired

Chocolate Mounds

1 12 ounce package coconut

16 ounces powder sugar

1/2 cup Hot mash potatoes (instant will work just fine)

Mix together and form into balls, refrigerate, until set.

Cold centers cause chocolate to crack.
