CHOCOLATE RUM PETIT FOUR

There are so many variety of PETIT FOUR - little cakes- but sometimes (actually most of the time) I like to create my own version of everything. My PETIT FOURS are made of cookie crumbs, butter, cream cheese, powder sugar, vanilla, rum, walnuts, raisins, cranberries, coated in white chocolate and topped with chocolate sprinkles. The outside looks like Petit Fours, but the texture resembles more of Truffles. We all love it! Definitely another dessert for my TEA TIME PARTY. I did not measure anything, I just mix a little bit of everything. For a better clean cut, I refrigerated for several hours.

RED PEPPER SPREAD

Roasted pepper delicacy, it is usually prepared in the fall to be consumed during the winter (in some countries), as an appetizer, snack or even as a side dish for any meat. There are so many recipes to choose from, but I have developed my own that my family loves the most. The ingredients are red peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes and some spices, all saute and simmer for less then an hour. I serve it on crackers or toast, tartines. I also like to add it to soups or stews for more flavor and color.
