Well on this stormy,blustery day I'm continuing Christmas preparations,extra cleaning and laundry as well as making the potatoes so I don't have to do them next weekend.
I also made our favourite Christmas treat, Coconut Peaks. My Mom has made these for as long as I remember, she got the recipe from her Mom. And my girls love them, it wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't make them. Here they are all lined up while the chocolate hardens.
And here's the recipe:
2 cups icing sugar, sifted
1/4 cup cream(I use milk)
3 cups flaked coconut
1/4 cup butter
3-4 oz. chipits
2 T shortening
Heat butter, stir in sugar, cream and coconut. Cool, shape into peaks, place on waxed paper, refrigerate. Melt together chocolate and shortening. Dip bottoms of peaks in chocolate or drizzle over tops. Refrigerate until set.
And a few pics from outside our home today.
Looks like Christmas!
And the snow piled up on our BBQ just ouside our back door!(yes we do BBQ year round, but won't be today!)
