Ideas needed for holiday goodies
Every year on Christmas Eve a few relatives (five of us) get together and eat and play games. I always make several goodies and the hosts usually make something too. This year I would like to make something different but I can't figure out what so I need help.
I usually bring the following:
funfetti cookies (made from cake mix)
rice krispy treats
The hosts usually make:
spam, cheese, and olives on a toothpick
chips and dip
In the past I made:
creamy jello jigglers
peanut blossoms (the cookies with the hershey kiss in the middle)
something similar to rice krispies bars but made with cheerios and caramel candy
While some of us liked those things, others didn't and I want to make something that everyone likes.
Any ideas on something easy that I can make that is different than what is already being brought? I thought about making a different type of cookie but I'd kind of like to try something other then a cookie. I also thought about rum balls but since we're already having eggnog with brandy in it, I don't think we need rumballs, unless they didn't contain alcohol. I also thought about a cinnamon/sugar nut mixture recipe I saw. I think you mix cinnamon, sugar, an egg, and something else then coat nuts with it and bake it in the oven. But I don't know if I like that.
I've been looking through cookbooks and on the internet but I just can't decide. There's so many things to choose from.
