It’s CHRISTMAS TIME!! Time for baking, eating, laughing, dancing and of course PRESENTS!! It was our last day of work before our Christmas holidays and we had planned to spend a day during the break making some treats to bring to our families homes. We just couldn’t wait. After work we rushed out and grabbed all our ingredients and pulled out the recipe we were most excited for! Thanks to one of the all time biggest Christmas lovers Miss.Caitlin (http://uglyawesome.com/) she gave us the recipe for this awesome (and crazy addictive) Christmas treat. We then blasted Christmas carols and popped some bubbly cheap champagne (my favorite) and put together a special  Christmas video for everyone!!

Thank you my love, for not only the champagne but putting so much time into this post. Thank you for creating such a fun video! xo

I love you!

ingredients:

  • enough saltines to lay side by side all over a baking pan ( put down aluminum foil first.)

-let boil for 2 minutes, then take off heat

-put in oven for 5 minutes
-sprinkle chocolate over the top and put back in oven until chocolate
melts (usually like 3 minutes)

* note: I should also probably add (before I get called out on it)…After a couple glasses (bottles) of champagne…We may have mixed up the steps a tad…but it still turned out perfect!

We took our Christmas treats to the first of  our family gatherings last night and it was enjoyed by everyone. There really is nothing like nibbling on food and sipping wine with a beautiful Christmas tree surrounded by your family and friends!

MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! XO
