Twas Five Days Before Christmas…

LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the kitchen, I was cooking and un-baking and moanin’ and twitching. I’ve been here for hours; I can’t stop to rest. This kitchen is a disaster; just look at this mess! So many recipes and techniques to share; I could email them daily, but do I dare? Do I dare?

Christmas-Oldfather-Farms-2015The bottom line is that I truly have too many recipes to share, and I didn’t want to fill your inboxes with all candy recipes from now until the new year. So I decided to release all the raw candy recipes that I had created for my family… all at once, but only sending you ONE email.  This way, you can pick and choose if any flavors stand out to you.  They are ALL wonderful, but I realize that we are getting down to the wire for Holiday treats.

I don’t know about you… but I am ready for savory dishes!  I have been feeling like a Willy Wonky and the Raw Candy Making Factory as of late. Hehe, I must say that it has been a pure joy sharing all these treats with our loved ones… right down to the mailman.

Happy Holidays!

It has been such a wonderful holiday time, and to top it off, we finally got our snow load of the season.  It has been just magical.  I thought I would share a photo that I took as we were walking along our driveway. The trees look absolutely majestic as they hold the snow. Believe it or not, but this photo makes me feel warm and cozy inside. hehe

Anyway, I best get moving along on this post.  Below I have shared a picture and link to each of the candies that I just shared on my site.  I hope you find some inspiration and have a wonderful time in the kitchen, making them.   Blessings, amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue,
    I hope you have been having a wonderful holiday season. I made your peanut butter tootsie rolls and they are awesome! I also just made hot and spicy mocha brownies with the frosting and they are crazy good!!
    If you have time, could you help me with a chocolate espresso tootsie roll or candy? Yum.
    Thank you so much for your amazing recipes and inspiration!

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Rachelle,

      Thank you, I/we had a wonderful holiday… always sad to see it go so I have decide to keep it alive in my heart. :)

      So happy to hear that you have been enjoying some of the recipes! I will be honest and say that right now, I don’t know if I will get the time to create a recipe for you. In roughly a week, I will be going on a trip and the days are pretty busy getting things prepared. I will however be happy to embark upon this when I get back. But should you get creative in the kitchen, I would just use my Raw Tootsie Rollz recipe and add expresso powder to it. Start with a few teaspoons worth and add more until the right level is achieved for your taste buds.

      Enjoy and have a blessed day! amie sue

  16. Rachelle says:

    Thanks, Amie Sue!
    I will definitely try that.
    I hope you have a lovely and safe adventure.

  17. Wendy says:

    Thank You so so so much for all these creative samples Inspiring all of us 😋💕
