CAFE: A gathering place. A place of refreshment.

Thirsty for the latest releases in Christian fiction? Ready for a peek into the world of publishing and writing conferences? Hungry for spiritual and real-life nourishment? Pull up a seat; you're in the right place, and I'm so glad you've stopped by.

CAFE SPECIAL OF THE WEEK - Poor Man's Millionaires

Can’t afford designer chocolates? (And who can at this time of year?) No time for time-consuming candy-making extravaganzas? Then, here’s a deal for you. THREE ingredients. Less than 30 minutes. No mixing. And everyone loves these bite-sized gooey chocolate treats with just the right crunch.

Poor Man’s Millionaires

Bag of mini-pretzels (knots)

Bag of Rolo candies

Pecan halves (one per treat)

Line cookie sheet w/ waxed paper. Spread pretzels on cookie sheet (not touching). Unwrap Rolo candies. Place one atop each pretzel. Bake at 250 degrees for 4 minutes (only until candy is slightly soft). Removed and press pecan half into top of each candy smooshing it down a bit. Let cool completely before removing from waxed paper. I sometimes put them in the freezer for a few minutes to speed the cooling.

Store in airtight container. That's it! Hint: Plan ahead and get enough stuff for two batches because these disappear fast.

You might want to leave a plate for poor Santa. He'll be grateful, I'm sure.


Peace and Joy to all . . .

Oooooh! These ingredients are going on the shopping list...AND I'm swiping it for my Three Ingredient Thursdays! (With proper citation of source, of course!)

I'm certainly swiping this recipe. I can't pass up a chance to look like a gourmet cook using only 3 ingredients and 30 minutes prep time.

Looking forward to Chasing Lilacs, which as I threatened, is now pre-ordered from Amazon.
