Christmas is less than a week away, I can’t believe it! Last year I really went all out for Christmas…baking, decorating, the whole deal. This year is a little different, I haven’t had so much time for all of that decorating and baking with this little boy hanging around, but I’m not complaining. I have a feeling Christmas will never be the same, in the best way!
I did make some time to try out this recipe for Peanut Brittle for the first time last week, and it was actually pretty dang good. I am a sucker for sweet and salty, so I sprinkled it with a little sea salt before it hardened….could not quit opening that tin! Monday I am taking Maverick to my parents so my mom and I can do a little baking, and I would love to try some new recipes this year. What are your favorite Christmas cookies/candies/treats?!
For now, I am sharing this cocktail recipe I came up with for the December issue of At Home Memphis magazine, and I defnintely plan to make it again on Christmas Eve. Last year I made this Sparking Apple Cider Sangria on Christmas Eve, so I am thinking this new Christmas cocktail recipe every year is becoming a trend, and I like it!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
