Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!!!

Everyone has a YUMMY cookie recipe to share and there are some extra little treats scattered around the Hop too, so be sure to visit each of the Authors and Bloggers blogs to make sure you don’t miss out on something SWEET!

Also for an extra special something in your stocking check out the Rafflecopter GRAND PRIZE Giveaway below.

I hope you are on Santa’s Nice List!

Here's a cookie that is unique. People either seem to really like it or really hate it. I happen to like it enough to share it with you. :-)

This is a picture of a different cookie but basically the cookies that my recipe yields will look like this except they contain marshmallows too.

Theese cookies don't have a title that I am aware of. We more or less have named them festive coconut balls. They are a no-bake cookie. :D


1 lb. chopped nuts

1 lb. chopped dates

1 lb. small marshmallows (I use the pastel fruity ones)

1 lb. flaked coconut

3 c. graham crackers crumbs

2 cans warmed condensed milk

Extra graham cracker crumbs

Add all of the above ingredients together. Blend well. Form into small balls and roll in graham cracker crumbs. Store in covered container.

I am celebrating this hop with a giveaway of my own in addition to the Grand Prize giveaway that all of us participants have contributed to.

My giveaway details will be first and then you can find the GP giveaway below.

My giveaway is open to all followers age 13 or older provided that TBD ships to you.

I will email the winner and they will have 48 hours to respond.

The prize will be a book ($13 or less) from TBD.

Good luck and Happy Holidays!

  1. Hi i'm glad to see you getting in the christmas mood so i don't have any favourite cookies at this time of the year but if i get better and my mother improves i will perhaps bake some to offer to the customer and friends

    now which books? i don't know right now my wishlist need to be updated with some confirmation so at teh moment i only know it will be one from it but which one i'm still unsure

    thank you for your generosity as always

  2. My kids and I love to make Christmas sugar cookies with colorful icing.

    I am hoping to get Tge Fiery Heart and Crash Into You.

  3. I like peppermint bark. I would love to win Instant Happy by Karen Salmansohn.

  4. I like all books so any of your books would please me

    2. near the header it still says "november gic"

  7. we usually get cookie mix from the store cx

    i have a huge book list going soooo o.o lol

  8. I love the sound of your biscuits (yes I'm an Aussie we ball them biscuits) because I don't eat chocolate it cuts out a lot of recipes but I do love shortbread, as for a book who can decide until the moment because there are so many

  9. My brother and my bestie would love these cookies. They love coconut. I will definitely have to make these for them. :) My fav. would probably have to be the snicker-doodle cookies that my friends mom makes. They are delicious. But cookies are cookies and I love em! ;)

  10. My favorite cookie at Christmas or anytime of the year is chocolate chip with walnuts. If I won I would pick a book of paranormal romance or urban fantasy. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

  11. My favorite holiday cookies are ginger snaps and butter cookies. My grandmother is from England so I have always loved eating traditional biscuits. I have no idea what I would book I would choose if I won, maybe pre-order Cress. Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

  12. My favorite Christmas cookie is buckeyes. My mom used to always make them when I was a kid.
    I'd order Long Live the Queen. I love the series and have been excited to read the last book.

  13. Thanks for the giveaway! I love gingerbread cookies! <3

  14. I love to make gingerbread cookies but I prefer to EAT chocolate chip cookies!

  15. I want to pick either a horror book for me, something with zombies maybe Monster Island or a book for my sons.

  16. I love frosted sugar cookies and meringue cookies. Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. Your cookies look yummy! I like pecan and pumpkin cookies (but I'll eat almost any kind, I'm a cookie monster ;) ). I think I'd pick Moon Over Soho, the first book in that series was so much fun.
