I saw where Kelly was doing "Christmas Cookies and Treats" this week on Show Us Your Life. I'm a little late, but I wanted to share one of my favorite treats to make around Christmas. I had a party last night for my high school girlfriends and made "Turtle Bars." This is a recipe I got from sister and it is SOOOO good and SOOOO easy.
- 3/4 C Butter
- 10 oz. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 C Chopped pecan pieces
- 1 (12 1/4 oz.) Caramel (I use the ice cream topping in a jar)
- 1 Package Vanilla Wafers
If you enjoy ooey, gooey, chocolate, and caramel, then this is the treat for you. It is SOOOO good and one of my favorites!
I also made some Creamy Cheddar Cheese Soup by Paula Deen last night, and it also turned out really good. Talk about major comfort food! Yummy!
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 large pimentos, diced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
- 1 1/2 cups cream
- 3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar

In a saucepan, saute onion and pimentos in butter for 5 to 7 minutes. Blend in flour. Add stock and cream. Cook until thick. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add 1/4 cup green onions, salt and pepper, to taste, and cayenne if desired. Garnish with remaining green onions.Delish!
