With that said, now it's time to put on your cooking hat, light the Christmas tree up, and get into the joyful holiday spirit.
- Christmas Divinity. Mix corn syrup, water, and granulated sugar into a two quart buttered saucepan and boil it up. Cook and stir until the sugar completely dissolves. Cook to 260 degrees then remove. Beat the egg whites in the large mixer bowl until they're stiff. Evenly pour the hot syrup over the egg whites as you continue to beat on high with an electric mixer. Throw in vanilla and beat it for 5 minutes until the candy stays in shape. Pat the candy on a towel sprinkled with powdered sugar until you get it into a rectangular shape. Sprinkle peanut butter over the candy along the sides. Roll it up from the longest side with the towel. Wrap it in the towel and place it on the baking sheet where you'll let it chill for about an hour. Afterwards, cut it in half, wrap it up in waxed paper and place it in the fridge.
- Chocolate and Walnut Fudge. Combine milk, sugar, condensed milk, cocoa, and chocolate powder then boil it. Add ghee, stir and cook until everything becomes very thick. Take a teaspoon of the mix and put it in a cup of cold water, leave it there until it turns into a ball. Throw the ball onto a plate and wait for a little sound, indicating the mixture is complete. Remove mixture from fire, add in the chopped walnuts and vanilla then mix it. Spread the mix on an evenly-greased tin. Wait a few minutes then begin shaping the mixture into small rounds.
- Banana and Cashew Butter Sandwich. Heat up some butter in a pan and add sugar. After they've dissolved, throw the bananas in one at a time. Roast each side on medium so that the sugary caramel covers the bananas in gold. Put it in a blender and add cashews. Add in vegetable oil bit by bit and grind. Throw in some honey along with the rest of the oil and grind until the cashew butter is nice and smooth. Spread the cashew butter on toasted bread as well as the banana slices, then complete it with another toasted bread.
- Christmas Cranberry Candles. Prepare a package of raspberry gelatin according to its directions, chill until its mixed, then throw in some cranberry sauce and blend it real good. Take some small cups or juice cans and pour mixture into them. Now let these sit overnight. Afterwards, un-mold it onto some lettuce leaves and couple it with either some whipped cream or salad dressing.
- Beef, Bacon and Blues Wrap. Bring two cracker breads to room temperature. While that's happening, mix blue cheese, bacon, milk, cream cheese, chives and pepper together. Spread half of the cream cheese over one of the cracker breads. Add on salad greens, half of roast beef, and tomatoes. Be sure to leave at least 4 inches of cracker bread uncovered. Roll up the covered side tightly and repeat with the second cracker bread.
