This right here is my childhood every Christmas season. We all would join Mom in the kitchen to help whip up goodies to pile onto a plate to deliver to the neighbors and save a little for us which we stored in tin containers in the storage room out in our garage.

In Utah we call it a cold storage, in Idaho my Grandma calls it a Fruit Room, but no matter what you call it it’s the place where the Christmas candies were stored.

Did you all do that too? arrange a whole bunch of cookies and candies on a plate to deliver to your neighbors? Now days it seems to have evolved into cute pinterest gifts like a bottle of pop and a cute tag or chapstick to be the reindeers nose on a card, but back in the day moms everywhere were slaving away to make 6 different recipes all to share with the neighborhood.

We made Mom’s original Chocolate Pizza (some call is rocky road pizza) her Peanut Butter Balls, and a bunch of other yummies. I vaguely remember making a candy cane cookie that no one was impressed with and never made a reappearance.

But the chocolate pizza was a favorite. It originally calls for coconut and maraschino cherries but we never add those. This year I decided to reinvent a family favorite and we added some peanut butter chips and M&M’s. Those M&M’s made it a billion times better! Chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, m&m’s, salty peanuts, squishy marshmallows and an addiction ready to start!

 

What goodies did you make in your childhood home?
