Cranberry Macadamia White Chocolate Fudge

This is the perfect holiday fudge with its chewy dried cranberries, and crunch macadamia nuts, all held together with creamy white chocolate fudge. Ohhh yes folks, this is a must make!

Well, here we are my friends. Christmas is a week away, and I am not even close to being ready. Where the heck does the time go?? They say times goes fast as we get older but holy crap, I think I am getting whiplash! I still have shopping to do, gifts to wrap, and believe it or not I still haven't finished decorating my dining room!! I know, Santa may revoke my honorary elf card!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Donuts

These amazing little mini donuts are packed with pure holiday flavor. Guaranteed to fill even the biggest Grinch with the Christmas spirit!

I spent the entire day in my kitchen yesterday. Baking, and cooking up some fab holiday food. The smells were insane! I am serious. Kevin woke up and stumbled down stairs, all bleary eyed, mumbling "What smells so good?". I kinda felt bad (just a smidge), but he grabbed one of these donuts and headed back to bed so I figure he got his payment for the inconvenience. Thanks goodness I had already taken my pictures!

Slow Cooker Dulce de Leche

This Slow Cooker Dulce de Leche is so ridiculously simple but soooooo amazingly good! Don't blame me if you want to eat the whole jar!!

Have you gotten to the point that candy, cookies, and fudge are now their own food group? I have realized that the reason I rarely eat sweets through the year is that I eat a butt ton of them in December!! I would be hard pressed to think of a day in the last couple of weeks that I have not consumed some form of holiday treataliciousness. I keep telling myself that it doesn't really count because I never eat a full serving, just a nibble to taste test here and there. However, when you are making 6 different sweet treats in one day.......ya those nibbles add up fast!! I have been avoiding my bathroom scale (I used to weigh every morning) so much that it left me a note that said "Was it something I said?"! No no my dear scale, it was something(s) I devoured ate!
