I have an addiction. It’s to everything that reminds me of my childhood Christmas.
I think I knew this existed within me, but I really saw the beast come out when I hit the roof that Ryan didn’t have the tree on when I got home one day. “who does that?!” I questioned.
The next morning my hunky man said in an unsure voice “uhhhh how about I plug your tree in for you?”. Very well, carry on. I sipped my coffee as my living room glimmered.
Mom if you’re reading, I get this from you. Thank you, I love the magic of Christmas! I feel I only have a limited time to fit in everything! Does anyone else feel this?? Watch all my christmas movies, burn all my candles, absorb Starbucks as much as I can, see lights, eat, bake, eat and bake! Oh shoot….I haven’t even shopped yet :/
Today I bring you something that has brought the holiday magic in even more…
Candy Cane Lane Almonds:
2 tbsp crushed candy cane
1/3 cup melted dark chocolate (I used Endangered Species 88% Dark)
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 cup unsalted dry toasted almonds
To Make Candy Cane Lane Almonds: Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in a small sauce pan, on very low heat.
Break up the candy can by placing it into a baggie and use a rolling pin to gently break it into small little shavings.
When the chocolate has melted, add in the almonds and coat well. Place the chocolate almonds on a parchment lined sheet and sprinkle with candy cane pieces.
Place in the freezer for 20 minutes before eating
Now, I need to master a good gingerbread and I’ll be a happy person.
Fill me in! Do you feel like you have to fit everything the season has to offer?
To Your Glam Life,
PS. 12 Days to Glam Christmas starts tomorrow!!!
