Now for something sweet {angel kisses}

angel kisses

These are one of my most favorite treats. Ever.  I remember having these every Christmas. Oh. So. Yummy!

And very easy to make.  They are really just meringue cookies chock full of chocolate chips and chopped pecans.  I can’t say enough about them!  But instead of raving on and on and on about how much I like them I’ll go ahead and post the recipe.  Enjoy!

Angel Kisses

2 egg whites

dash salt

2/3 c. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

6 oz. chopped nuts

6 oz. chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat egg whites until stiff.  Gradually add salt and sugar while continuing to beat mixture.  Stir in vanilla.  Add nuts and chocolate chips and stir.  Line baking sheets with foil and drop mixture onto sheets.  Place in oven and turn off.  Leave in oven overnight or until oven is cool.


A little spice during the holidays {hot pepper pecans}

I love making special treats over the holidays and I’ve been busy in the kitchen working on some recently.  I remember having Hot Pepper Pecans every Christmas time.  They are so simple to make and so yummy I will sit and eat the entire batch (which is not a good thing!)
