Welcome to A Homemade Christmas! This is No. 3 of 4 A Homemade Christmas events.
I hope you’ll join us in sharing about homemade gifts, decorations, foods, and/or handmade things that make your home extra special for Christmas!
{Feel free to learn more about A Homemade Christmas here.}

It is a joy to make special treats for gifts and family gatherings. Our top five choices (of sweets) are Cinnamon Rolls (using our bread recipe), Beluga Babies (Oreo Truffles), Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Peanut Butter Fudge. All of these treats can be packaged creatively, making the presentation quite charming!

Peanut Butter Fudge

5 cups white sugar
5 TB white karo
1 can carnation milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt

Cook until soft ball (drop a drip or two in cold water, if it stays together it is at the soft ball stage). Stir with wooden spoon to keep the bottom from sticking. Remove from heat.


¾ stick butter
1¼ cups peanut butter

Stir until dissolved (do not beat). Pour into buttered 9×13 inch pan. Let cool. Cut and enjoy!

I will be adding a couple more posts throughout the next couple weeks to this week’s AHC which will probably include more handmade gifts, recipes, and decorations.

Are you having A Homemade Christmas? Yes? Then I invite you to join me here by adding your link to your post about homemade gift(s), decorations, foods, and/or handmade things that make your home extra special for Christmas!

I hope you’ll join us while we learn, inspire, and encourage one another as we prepare to celebrate (though we celebrate all year round) the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ!

    Thanks Emily! :D I appreciate it! :) I was wondering what happened, then remembered that you were going to that, so you probably hadn’t had the chance to finish your’s. ;) I can’t wait to see it! :)

    Blessings and Merry Christ-mas!

    Hello dear Emily,
    I’ve really been enjoying your “A Homemade Christmas” meme! I wish you would have more than 4 posts. :) I hope you will do this again next year, as well.
    Have a very merry CHRISTmas delighting in our SAVIOR’S birth!
    In JESUS,
    P.S. I made a pair of yellow fingerless gloves for my mom for Christmas. I know she’ll love ’em – thanks for the idea! :)

    Mmm, those look quite good! I plan on posting a Homemade Christmas post soon, (finally!), and I was wondering if anyone is allowed to use the graphic?

    Thank you!

    When I see the picture my taste buds cry out in perfect ecstasy “Yum-oh” Those are the PERFECT gift in my mind…and stomach.

    See you later!

    I’m having a homemade Christmas. :) I posted pictures of some of my homemade gifts on my blog. Mmmmm! That fudge looks good enough to eat.

    Ok, now that I’ve looked around a little, I found the code for the banners in a very obvious place. Sometimes I’m a little dense like that.

    Thank you anyway!

    Hello! I’m the one who just posted the HSB Company Porch link. I just thought I would let you know that. I know it doesn’t have a link back to a Homemade Christmas, but my Mom posted it before I had thought of adding it here. It has so many cool links that I just really wanted to share!
