Goodies for Gifts

A potpourri of sickness has descended upon us and that has put a damper on my holiday prep. But I was determined to make some goodies to give as gifts.

The chocolate-covered cherries that I posted about recently have been a fun treat and I have made a few batches. I tried both recipes and found that I preferred one the best. I have a few tweaks to try but in the meantime, they are delicious!

Here is the recipe that I liked the best. The other recipe uses corn syrup which made the centers a bit chewy and tough, although it was easier to work with.

I also followed a recipe from McCormick for Spiced Nuts. Here is that link…
