More Advent Sweets…

It’s amazing what a quiet day at home can do for the spirit.

I spent yesterday nursing my Teddy through this stomach virus, and the Lord ministered.

There was quiet.

There was rest.

There was watching this boy-child sleep fitfully in the middle of the day.

And though I would never wish this illness on my dear ones…what a gift the Lord gave me through this day.

He took away the distractions. He tendered my heart.

He touched me.

He knew.

He always does.

I am filled with the sweet anticipation of Advent once again.

So…

I thought it would be fitting to share an Advent treat with my friends.

This is one of our favorite holiday treats. We make if for every occasion–because M & Ms conveniently come in seasonal colors!

My sweet neighbor, Sallie (who has since moved away), first introduced me to this little treasure. It’s simple and easy to make, and sinfully delicious! We make this for teacher gifts, put it in pretty tins or decorative boxes for neighbors…

It’s always well-recieved!

I pray you enjoy!

1. You will need a bag of mini-pretzel twists, 2 bags of white chocolate chips, and a bag of seasonal m & ms.

2. Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Be careful not to overcook the chocolate! I always defrost for a minute or so before melting.

3. Stir in the pretzels gently, until coated.

4. Now your ready for the M & Ms! Make sure your chocolate is sufficiently cooled so the colors of the M & Ms don’t run.

5. Spread the pretzels out on wax paper and leave until the chocolate is hardened.

Bless you all, my friends! I’ve loved sharing my Advent sweets with you!

    My life is so much quieter at this stage of life, with kids grown and gone, but I do remember the hectic days.

    Thank You Jesus, for bathing my friend with Your love, for quieting her spirit. Multiply her time and order her days. Guard and protect her mind and draw her close as she comes to You, that Your joy would well up and fill her to overflowing. Thank You for loving her Father, thank You for choosing her to be Yours!

    YUMMO! That sweet is definitely going to make it on our Christmas table this year… I love that it’s so easy.

    Yes, definitely research the answers to my ?s. You’ve got a month to do it, so no rush. Get your boys to look them up maybe…

    I hope your Teddy is feeling much better. As much as you don’t want them to suffer in any way, it sure is lovely to love on them and meet their needs and to gaze on them when they’re sleeping. Our Angels!!!

    Have a beautiful day!

    Yummy! These look delish!:)

    I made something very similar to these this year too, and they were also well received.

    All you need is the same type of pretzels, Hershey kisses, and Christmas colored M&Ms.
    You preheat your oven to170 degrees.

    Place some pretzels on an ungreased cookie sheet. Put a Hershey kiss on each pretzel..pop into the oven for about 4 minutes. Then as soon as you pull them out of the oven, quickly press one M&M into the center of each of the Hershey kisses. Then refrigerate them until the chocolate firms back up a bit. They are pretty and delish.;)

    Merry Christmas!
    God Bless,
    Amy:)
