what does every self-respecting chocaholic do around the holidays??! look for ways to incorporate chocolate into every Christmas treat imaginable :). i’ve found a new weakness……christmas bark!!! what could be better than oreos, peppermint chips, m&ms, and pretzels all mixed together? all mixed together with white chocolate. yes, please.
a couple weeks ago on facebook I asked people for their favorite holiday side dish. I was emailed some favorites and they all looked delicious!!! I chose to make this dish because it is completely new to me, would be perfect with ham for Christmas day, and seemed perfect for my skill level :). I was right on all accounts!! it was delicious and I will be making it for years to come!
i have been excited about this post since mom and i brainstormed about it last week. it started out as an idea about different types of sangrias. our most popular post on the blog BY FAR has been the apple pie sangria. and its truly one of my favorite drinks. i thought it would be so cool to make up a different type of sangria for all the holidays and special occasions throughout the year. so as the year progresses, we will be making unique flavors of sangria to share with you! i’m so so excited.
if you would have told me a year ago that i was going to make homemade ANYTHING…i would have laughed. i was a storebought kind of girl. but there is currently homemade hot fudge in my refrigerator…this journey has clearly taken me places i didn’t think i would go! this recipe is easy and delicious…and i’ve been eating in on icecream three nights straight. so its a keeper!
i’m a choc-aholic. hardcore. (i’m also a cheese-aholic…i have several problems) i love love love chocolate. if you’re ever wanting to bring me dessert or bake me something (please feel free), make it chocolate. its one of my favorite things. i’ve also, not surprisingly, always loved french silk pie. tippins pie is the best…and i’ve never tasted a homemade recipe that even comes close. this recipe is mightly close.
i have to admit, i was pretty proud of this one. i gloated a little. it was that good. (and the best part?? it was super easy. but no one needs to know that)
