Happy Christmas Eve Eve y'all!!!
I can't believe it's less than 48 hours before Santa makes his appearance!! I'm so excited!! I'm still such a kid when it comes to Christmas! I still can't sleep in Christmas morning. Growing up my parents eventually made the rule that I wasn't allowed to come out of my room Christmas morning until after the sun had come up!
This week we are sharing our favorite holiday recipes! What foods do you love to eat for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other reason you celebrate this time of year? My wonderful co-host Marie from Listening Rather Than Speaking is here sharing a perfect Christmas treat!!
The holidays to me screams COOKIES, CANDY, AND SWEETS.
I found this recipe on http://allrecipes.com, a long time ago.
I tried making them and they came out amazing! :) I wanted to share this recipe with you!
