    Default What are your favorite HOLIDAY snacks?

    The thread for Chex Party Mix got me to thinking about the holiday snacks we make every year as a tradition..... And so I am wondering what some of your favorites are?

    One of my all-time favorite Dips is homemade Avacado Guacamole!!! I could eat tubs full of it!!! My grandmother made hers soooo good she used sour cream and all the other spices and mashed avacado it was out of this world, better than any I have ever had!!!!

    I love those powdery archway cookies. I can't eat them now but maybe I'll try to work up a gluten free version.

    Chocolates, M&M's, Holiday Chocolates, Holiday M&M's, White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and any other kind of chocolate even if its not the holiday. I'm not fussy.

    The talk of fruitcake reminds me of my Vietnam days and my Grandmother wants to send me a fruitcake for Christmas. My grandfather says the fruitcake needs to be "preserved" since it may take a long time to arrive, so they made it with Brandy and wrapped it in a towel soaked in the stuff and made sure it was mailed in a sturdy tube container. It was mailed in October but did not find me until nearly March. I guess you know how well "preserved" that fruitcake was and how long it lasted. Definitely some happy guys for awhile!
