Christmas cookies for the cookie plate!

Pictured above...quick, easy, and delicious Coconut Joys!
I found this simple little recipe many years ago in a magazine and it has been a favorite of our family ever since!

Coconut Joys:

1/2 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups coconut
6 ozs. melted chocolate

Melt butter in saucepan and remove from heat. Add powdered sugar and coconut, mixing well. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls, make a dent in the center of each and place on parchment paper, lined cookie sheet. Fill "dents" with melted chocolate. Store in fridge.

Next up, we have a little salty/sweet treat! Caribe contributed this tasty morsel, made with pretzels, chocolate kisses, and holiday M&M's.

Peanut Blossoms have been a long time family favorite and Caribe also contributed these to our cookie making marathon back on December 23rd.
Yet another sweet and salty treat! I posted this recipe earlier this year and have made the Turtles several times...they never seem to last long!

More cookies to come......
