…then you better check out this post! Hehe.
Merry Christmas Eve! Hope everyone is feeling nice and festive today…I know I am!
I have a full day ahead of me – lunch at Jay’s aunt’s house, church, and then dinner at my parents’ house – so it’s a good thing I got all of my baking and wrapping done last night.
Speaking of baking…want to see what I made?
The first thing I whipped up (and when I say “whipped up,” I mean it quite literally) were these Toffee Pumpkin Spice desserts. I’ve had a box of Fillo shells lying around since HLS this past August and was determined to use them up.
All I did was prepare a box of Pumpkin Spice pudding mix (the stuff is amazing) as you would for a pie, and topped them with some Heath Bar bits. So simple, it’s scary.
The next dessert I made is a little spin-off of my Dark Chocolate Turtle Graham Bars.
A few weeks ago when we were over at our friends’ Cortney & Jim’s for dinner, she had made a batch of these and I just could not keep my grubby little fingers off of ‘em.
Ooo, speaking of fingers. I forgot to show you my latest holiday nails…
Simple and understated. Thanks again, Kelsey!
So anyways, back to these
For my friends out there who love a sweet & salty combo, these are totally for you. The bottom is a sleeve of saltines, which are then coated in the same brown sugar and butter mixture as my turtle grahams. That brown sugar and butter is really just a wonderful thing on these. Oh good lord.
Once that part was cooked, I topped them with about 14 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips and loaded on the Heath Bar bits.
Can ya tell I’m all about the Heath bars lately?
I’m hoping my goodies will be a hit today!
Knowing full well that my full day ahead of me is also going to include lots of delicious food, I knew it’d be a good idea to start with a workout. Here’s what today’s looked like:
Post-workout, I refueled with some coffee & an egg, cheese, and jam sandwich. Now it’s time to get ready and get festive. It’s Christmas Eve, baby!!
Question for the Morning:
What’s one thing you’re most looking forward to this holiday weekend?
