Feliz Noche Buena!!!
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for following along with me these past 12 Days. The recipes I’ve shared with you were recipes that I had sworn to secrecy. Though, since starting this Blog I now have the passion to share with everyone. What’s the point of keeping all these secrets and not sharing the love. I love sharing the love!!!
Okay enough of the soppy love stuff!!! I spent 2 days in the kitchen making these 12 days of goodies believe it or not. I committed one day to Baking and one day to Candy Making, adding 3 BRAND NEW RECIPES. I actually didn’t end up tasting my treats until 3 days later when the combined smell of candy and baked goods had left my nostrils. I impressed myself and gave myself a good ole’ pat on the back.
Day 12- Recap of the 11 Recipes Shared:
An easy and delicious Chocolate and Almond treat.
If I didn’t have these braces I would have devoured these!
These cookies are melt in your mouth delicious!
The first goodie to completely disappear in Casa Orduno.
A festive White Chocolate and Flaked Coconut candy that resembles Snow Balls.
Probably my most requested Christmas recipe. How stoked are you all to find out it’s super easy to make?!
A Homemade MUCH tastier Almond Roca candy. Made right out of your kitchen with ingredients you probably have on hand already!
Another treat I would rip these braces off to eat! Kidding 🙂
To me, these taste the most like Christmas. The combination of spices and ingredients are so comforting and just feel like home.
I enjoyed having a couple of these with my morning cup of coffee… until they were gone.
Fudge made with or without chopped walnuts. Silky Smooth and rich taste. A Holiday Staple.
Not to toot my own horn or anything, but this fudge is SO GOOD!!!!
A bite size pastry with a sweet and savory taste
My Step Mother actually requested I make these. I was a little hesitant, Brie cheese is not my favorite. But the more I ate the more I liked. Give them a try I’m sure you’ll like them too!
My Niece’s Favorite! Layered White and Dark Chocolate with tiny pieces of Peppermint Candy.
I LOVE the taste of White Chocolate and Peppermint. This year I decided i’d spruce it up a little bit and add the Dark Chocolate. Excellent Choice!
Suggested by my Step Brother. Tiny Cinnamon Rolls rolled with a brown sugar and cinnamon mixture topped with a cream cheese glaze.
There’s a really good and a really bad thing about these mini cinnis. The Good- They’re SUPER yummy. The Bad- You can’t just eat one!
Pecans topped with Caramel and Chocolate. Recipe includes an easy homemade caramel sauce.
PSA: Not Actual Turtles
Mini Bundt Cakes brushed with Rum, Glazed with a Pure Maple Glaze and topped with Soft Shredded Bacon
I knew I was taking a risk when creating this recipe. But the risk paid off and I received nothing but positive Feedback from these bad boys.
These were added as extra. I know making these candies and goodies sometimes require extra tools so I wanted to make a cheat sheet with links straight to amazon with the fairest prices I could find. Any of these will be an investment in your Future Baking and Candy Making. Click here to check them out.
I hope you guys had as much fun reading these articles as I had writing them. Can’t wait for you to try at least one of these recipes. The Candy Making is so much easier than you think!!
A very very Merry Christmas from our Family to Yours. Today we will spend time making Gingerbread houses, attending Christmas Eve service then coming home to eat a Ham dinner. My sister is coming down from Monterey and I’m excited to have her here with me. I will be returning to my blog after the New Year so I can spend the next week squeezing my babies till their eyes pop out. Follow me on Instagram- @LifeAmorFamily and on Facebook- Facebook.com/LifeAmorFamily. I’m sure i’ll be posting pics during the week.
Merry CHRISTMAS! May God Bless and Keep You.
