“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow…”
And now that we are all warm and toasty and with the spirit of Christmas all around us, here’s Linda to entice us with a tasty treat for the holiday. Enjoy!
Recipe: PEOPLE CHOW
1 6 oz. package chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pour above mixture over:
8 cups Cheerios
Stir until evenly coated
2 or 3 cups sifted powdered sugar
Pour into large paper or plastic bag and add coated cereal. Shake gently to coat
with sugar. Spread on waxed paper and cool completely. Store in airtight container.
This recipe was given to me by a woman who became a dear friend while we both were
living in adjacent log cabins outside Oswego, NY when our husbands were start-up
engineers at a nearby power plant. I make this every holiday and it reminds me of
a cold, cold winter and a warm friendship.
Sharon and Oliver agree the treats are out of this world. As the snow deepens, they bid Linda a farewell and wish her a Merry Christmas. Oliver, always the perfect gentleman, helps her on with her coat and scarf. And not one to pass up a tradition or an opportunity, he steals yet another kiss under the mistletoe!
Another holiday book, The 12 Days of Christmas, will be released in
December and her first published historical, in 2010.
