Recipe 4 Sugar Glazed Walnuts
These were given to me for the holidays, and I thought they would be a great treat to give for Valentines Day. You can buy small jars with a red lid, put a label on the front with the person's name and happy valentines day and on the back, You can list the ingredients and directions! Very simple and inexpensive (and tasty)!
 
1 egg white
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 lb. walnuts
 
Beat ingredients. Pour on nuts; coat well. Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour on a foil lined cookie sheet, turning so they don't stick. Cool on the cookie sheet.
 
 

Recipe 4 Snow Fudge

Since I live in the mountains, I like to make Snow Fudge! I also made some snowballs (took a sock, cut off the top part, and stuffed it with cotton balls. Then  tied a string around the top to keep it together) I wrapped the Snow Fudge up in colored wrap and tied the snowballs around it!
