Christmas Treats!


I'm at it again, posting treats like these are becoming an addiction, I want to make every single thing right now! Christmas is probably one time of the year we all like to indulge, if you can resist all the yumminess, I take my hat off to you, seriously well done! 

For me, Christmas is all about family, spending quality time together, laughing and generally just enjoying everything! I'm not bothered about presents for myself, but seeing Abbie open up hers is my favourite thing ever! Aside from the joy it brings Abbie, my most favourite thing is the food, Christmas dinner, chocolate, biscuit tins, Hot Chocolates, buffet food, cheese boards, everything, I will eat more in 3 days than I have the whole year put together!

I know it's much easier to go out and buy it all, you could actually save your self some money by making your own yummy treats! Not only can they make great last minute gifts, but seeing everyones faces once they've tried them is priceless, that is if you haven't eaten them all beforehand!

Below I have found a bunch of yummy recipes online, so if you're looking for some inspiration, enjoy!
