Santa Came!

Santa came and brought me what I wanted... A new Vera Bradley purse, it's chocolate brown too, my favorite color at the moment! Christmas Day was so nice to lay around the house and spend quality time with family, and that is exactly what we did. I hope everyone had a fantastic day!

Christmas Bon Bon's

It's a tradition every year for my mom and I to make our Christmas Bon Bon's! We usually quadruple the recipe and spend days hand crafting these delectable treats to give away to family & friends.
I know all of our husbands think, including mine, that we spend each and everyday between loads of laundry, changing diapers, being a chauffeur, cooking, cleaning... seriously the list could go on and on... that we sit on our little bottoms and eat Bon Bon's all day long! 
LOL!! I only wish;) 

Being in the Christmas spirit I thought
 I would give away a little box of these yummy Bon Bon's.
So, when your husband does comes home from a long day at work and asks...
 What did you do today? 
You can say, I sat around and ate Bon Bon's today!

All you need to do is leave me a comment 
and I will draw a winner Monday of next week.

Christmas Bon Bon's

4 cups of powdered sugar
1 stick of softened butter
1 can of Eagle brand milk
1 tsp. vanilla
14 oz. of shredded coconut
2 cups chopped fresh pecans
1 package of chocolate chips (Ghirardelli, milk)
1/2 cube paraffin (to keep the chocolate shiny)

Mix all the ingredients except for the chocolate and paraffin, in a large bowl. Refrigerate overnight. Form the mixture into small balls, set on cookie sheets and freeze. Melt chocolate and paraffin in a double broiler. Dip balls into chocolate using wooden kabob sticks, place back on cookie sheets, Refrigerate. Top Bon Bon's with a curl of chocolate, a baby spoon works best. Refrigerate then place in paper decorative cups. 
Package & Enjoy!
