Christmas cooking ideas?

Any good holiday recipes for this holiday season? So far I’ve got butter rum fudge, chocolate fudge, peanut clusters, snowflake cookies, cutout cookies, peppermint patties, Santa’s suprise cookies, and peppermint brittle. Any other ideas? Please and thank you!

    The lasagna and salad sound good to me. We did that for many years because we didn’t want to duplicate what the people would be having on Christmas day. I think I would plan on at least two salads that can be made ahead of time and maybe a relish plate. And why not just buy a fancy dessert. It worked out fine for us.
    Also, you will have more time to spend with your guests.

    No Bake Fudge Cookies

    Serving Size : 48

    2 cups Sugar
    1/2 cup Milk
    1/2 cup Butter or Margarine
    3/4 cup Peanut Butter
    3 cups Quick-cooking oats
    6 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
    1 teaspoon Vanilla

    Boil first three ingredient for one minute, over medium heat in a large pan
    (dutch oven size). Next, add peanut butter and cocoa and mix well with a
    wire whisk. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Add quick oats, until
    mixture will just hold it’s shape when dropped from a spoon. You may need
    to increase the amount of oats by as much as 1/2 cup, depending one your
    altitude and humidity. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls or use cookie scoop to
    drop mixture onto cookie sheets which have been lined with waxed paper.
    Cool before serving.

    6 quarts freshly-popped popcorn (1 cup kernels)
    12 ounces cinnamon red hots
    Granulated sugar
    1 cup butter
    ½ cup light corn syrup
    1 tsp. salt
    ½ tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. cinnamon oil

    Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Butter large roasting pan. Place popcorn in prepared pan. Place in oven while preparing glaze. Place red hots in 2-cup measure & fill to top w/sugar. Boil red hots, sugar, butter, syrup & salt for 5 minutes. Remove from heat & add soda and oil. Stir well & pour over popped corn, tossing quickly to distribute evenly. Bake for 1 hr., stirring every 15 min. Remove from oven. Using metal spatula, scrape popcorn from bottom of pan. Let cool completely in pan. Break into clumps. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    Yield: 6 Quarts


    1 cup granulated sugar
    ¾ cup rum
    2 cups whole, unsalted cashews
    2 oz. butter

    Bring sugar & rum to boil in medium saucepan. Cook for 3 minute, or until candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees F. Remove from heat & add cashews, stirring constantly to coat w/syrup. The sugar will become white & grainy after about 30 seconds. Return saucepan to heat & re-melt sugar, adding a few drops of water if needed. Watch carefully; do not burn. When syrup has turned a rich caramel color (about 2 minutes) & the nuts sound hollow at the tap of a spoon, remove from heat & stir in butter. Turn onto oiled baking sheet, spreading out in one layer, separating any pieces that are stuck together. Cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

    Yield: 2 Cups
