Favorite Christmas pastry or Candies

Growing up....my favorite Holiday treats were my mom's Pralines and Cherry and Date cookies. She's been gone for many years. But, the memories of baking in the kitchen during the Holiday's will never be forgotten.

Anything chocolate! But to narrrow it down a little, I love my Peanut Butter Balls (Buckeyes) and Oreo Balls that I make. I only make them at Christmas time so I look forward to them all year long.

I miss my mom's and grandmother's Baby Ruth cookies. I tried to make them once, but was not very successful. The ingredients include chopped-up Baby Ruth candy bars. I could never figure out where the chocolate went, because the cookies themselves don't seem to have any chocolate in them, in spite of the candy bars. They had kind of a toffee flavor about them. I still have the recipe.

For candy---I can't let a Christmas season go by without a few Terry's chocolate oranges. I can't make up my mind between the dark or milk chocolate, so I have both.

I like my Grandma's cookies (spritz, PB blossoms etc...) and we only buy the Ghirardhelli Chocolates around Christmas I really enjoy those.

I had never even heard of this until last year when my Bro and SIL sent us some. I guess it's a PA Dutch thing. The thought of 'potato candy' kinda put me off, but I thought it was okay, just a little overly sweet for me.
