I have cut and pasted so many recipes from this thread I thought it was time I paid back. These are some of our favorites:
Christmas Holly Cookies
1 stick butter
30 large marshmallows
4-1/2 c corn flakes
1 tsp green food coloring
Red hot candies
Melt together butter and marshmallows.
Blend in food coloring and add corn flakes.
Drop by spoonful on waxed paper and add red hots.
1 lemon cake mix
4 oz cool whip
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Mix ingredients, place in freezer so not so sticky
Roll into 1” balls, roll into powder sugar

Peanut Butter Bon Bons
1 stick of butter
1 – 18 oz jar crunch peanut butter
1 lb. Box powdered sugar
3 cups rice krispies
12 oz. chocolate chips
8 oz. chocolate candy bar (may be multiple bars)
˝ block paraffin wax
Combine butter, peanut butter, powedered sugar and rice krispies (I use my hands at the end)
Chill until firm (can be made 1 day ahead of time)
While cold, roll into balls.
Melt the chocolate and wax in double boiler (wax doesn’t melt good in the micro)
Dip balls into chocolate.
Drizzle any leftover chocolate over top to make decorative lines across (optional)
Cool thoroughly and chill overnight before serving.
1-1/2 cups peanut butter
1 stick butter or margarine
1 box (16 oz) powder sugar
12 oz. white chocolate chips
1 T vegetable shortening
Edible Glitter - I don't use
In a large bowl combine peanut butter and butter until blended.
Add powdered sugar, ˝ c at a time, stirring after each addition.
Line a baking sheet with foil. Using your hands, shape peanut butter mixture into 1” balls.
Chill about 1 hour.
Place white chocolate and shortening in large bowl, stirring every 30 minutes until melted, about two minutes.
Once covered, sprinkle with glitter. Chill 30 minutes. ps-I have yet to find edible glitter.
