Some of my favorite people gathered Friday night to chat and exchange Christmas cookies. These girls get together once a month, but I hadn’t seen them in what seemed like ages.
So, despite having notimewhatsoever to bake, I joined them.
My first thought was to go with
store bakery-bought goodies, but theBOY shamed me into making something.
Ever hear of Jolly Hocks? Me, neither. But that’s what bigSIS called the delicious treats I made for the get together when she tasted one.
I had to ask Google to be sure I wasn’t in the dark about these Jolly Hocks. Turns out, she’s still a silly three-year-old with an imagination.
I adapted a recipe (with whatever I could find at Target on my lunch break) that my mom gave me, and they turned out super yummy.
Easy Recipe for Jolly Hocks
Two 12 oz bags of white chocolate morsels
10 or so pretzel rods broken into pieces
One 4 oz can of almonds, chopped
One bag of craisins
Melt white chocolate according to the bag (I did one bag at a time), stir in remaining ingredients. Drop blobs of the yummy goodness on a cookie sheet and pop it in the freezer for a few minutes.
Of course, if you had more time to shop and a better Target, you could use slivered almonds and pretzel bites and you’d save yourself some time in the kitchen.
Thanks, mom, for the recipe! And thanks, Emily, for hosting us!!
If you know the real name of these, will you let me know? Otherwise, I’m sticking with Jolly Hocks.
