Jolly Don-Don Fudgy No Bake Squares

EASY CHRISTMAS BAKING TO CHECK OFF YOUR HOLIDAY TO-DO LIST   If you’re super busy for the Christmas holidays like we are you will appreciate our signature family Jolly Don-Don Fudgy No Bake Squares that take 15 minutes to prepare.

You will LOVE what these fudgy no bake squares look and taste like especially since they are unique to our family.

These fabulous Jolly Don-Don Fudgy No Bake Squares take 1 hour to chill in the refrigerator and you’re ready to serve to your guests.

Mr.CBB’s Festive Coconut Balls

These Festive Coconut Balls also called snowballs for some are part of our family tradition each year. Just before the Holidays arrive we load up the kitchen with baking ingredients and get to work. If you like coconut cookies or better yet chocolate coconut cookies you will love these coconut balls. The great thing about these treats are not only are they cheap to make they are an easy no-bake coconut balls recipe. So no need to turn on the oven to heat up the house and send your smart meter into overdrive.  If there is one thing I like in the kitchen it is no bake recipes or no bake foods which keeps it simple, at least for me.  Just last week we whipped up a few batches of no-bake chocolate peanut butter balls but we have to hide them because they are so popular around here. All you need is a double boiler or a pot and a stainless steel bowl and you are ready to make these elegant treats flavoured with a sweet condensed milk. You can wrap these chocolate coconut balls up for friends and family or place in the centre of a table for your holiday guests. […]
