12 Days of Christmas – Day 1

Hi Quilting Friends,

We’re so excited about the 2020 Virtual Cookie Exchange blog hop, hosted by our quilting friend Carol from Just Let Me Quilt. (Thank you Carol!) This is our 4th year to participate in the Virtual Cookie Exchange, and it is one of our favorite events because we both LOVE Christmas! You’ll want to visit all of the participating blogs, and come back every day through December 4 to be inspired by quilts and cookies. Keep reading to find the list of today’s blog posts.

Christmas is the perfect time to share a sweet treat. Even though our holiday celebrations for 2020 may look a bit different than in other years, we can still share the joy of giving that makes Christmas so merry!

Our recipe today isn’t exactly a cookie recipe, although cookies are one of the ingredients. If you love chocolate, then you’ll ADORE these tasty treats. They’re easy to make with only four ingredients, and you probably won’t need to worry about storing the leftovers since they tend to disappear quickly. Click on the recipe card to download a copy for your files!

The quilted table runner that you see with the goodies is our easy “Churn Dash” table runner. This variation features cute appliqued holly leaves and pretty red buttons all around the border. The runner pattern is available from Ms P’s Pattern Shop.

You are invited to join us here for our “12 Days of Christmas” blog series, through December 12. Visit each day for inspiration, ideas, projects, recipes, and giveaways; just the thing to make your Christmas merry and bright!

Happy quilting,

Sharon & Susan

  1. Your recipe looks easy and yummy at the same time. My kind of recipe. Such an adorable table runner too. The holly leaves really make that border sing.

  2. I love those cookie balls–a great recipe to share! My daughter made some last week–too bad I’m not close enough to her to run over and get some… The table runner is very pretty! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I can testify that these cookies are fabulous. A young man that was my boss made these for a cookie exchange many years ago. I told him they were yummy and asked if they were hard to make. He told me, heck no! That’s why I made them – his momma (he’s from Georgia, Alabama) told him exactly what to buy and how to make them just last night. HA! I haven’t thought about that story for ages. Thanks for the recipe and Merry Christmas to you both. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Chocolate Truffles…yummy. Ha, I probably shouldn’t be reading about all these wonderful treats when I’m hungry, right? But none the less, your recipe is perfect not only because they look delish but because the recipe is simple. Thanks.

  7. My first thought was ‘darn’ – my Christmas baking for this year is done. If it wasn’t I would be making these!! I’m saving the recipe for next year though because they look so good. Thank you!
