I decided to try something fun for between now and Christmas. Introducing...the Twelve Days of Christmas Recipes! Each day I'll post a recipe for something that I traditionally make around Christmastime. It could be cookies, candies, or meals. Or, it could be none of the above! At the end of each post, I'll include a passage from Luke leading up to the birth of Christ. Merry Christmas!
Day 1: Chocolate Covered Almonds
First, you'll need some basic ingredients:
1 16 oz. package of roasted, unsalted almonds
1 1/4 C semi-sweet chocolate chips (I prefer Hershey's)
2 Tbsp shortening
1 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I prefer Hershey's)
Luke 2: 1-3: In
those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the
entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place
Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their
own town to register.
