3 Frilling Post-Christmas Treats


Lyle was so excited to have received the Star Wars movies on blue-ray for Christmas, and seeing as how I have never seen them, we decided to watch all six of them in a span of three days. I have to admit, this was not the most exciting prospect in my opinion, so I knew we would have to frill things up a bit with some fun, after Christmas treats – one for each night. 

Everyone knows that it’s nearly impossible to get back on track with things right after Christmas. New Years is just around the corner, so there’s no point in laying off the sweets just yet, right? Recipes below!

Nutty Irishman:

  • 1 part Baileys
  • 1 part hazelnut Kahlua
  • 1 part cream
  • Dash of cinnamon 

Amaretto Stone Sour:

  • 1 part Tequila
  • 1 part Amaretto
  • 1 part sweet and sour mix
  • 1 part orange juice

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix:

  • Melt and mix together 1 cup of chocolate chips, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, and 1/4 cup butter. Mix in 1 teaspoon of vanilla. 
  • Stir chocolate mixture into a bowl of 7 cups of Chex cereal and 2 cups of pretzel sticks (I used gluten free!).
  • Pour into a container with 1 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar and shake well. 
  • Let cool on a strip of parchment paper.
