Clay Filigree Ornaments + Link Party

December 6th, 2012

Hi everyone and welcome to the par-tay!  I loved working with clay earlier this year when I made this clay petal vase so my daughter and I got together to craft some miniature ornaments out of the same product.  We liked the idea of little clay ornaments hanging on branches so we made several ornaments and they turned out pretty cute!   The first clay ornaments we made were these little filigree versions.

White Chocolate Mint Fudge

December 5th, 2012

I love to make sweet little bites for our Christmas party every year, those tiny little morsels that guests can grab and I don’t have to worry about slicing up portions and serving them formally.  One guaranteed way to satisfy guests’ sweet tooth is with a little fudge, and this is my white chocolate mint version.  It’s less sweet than most fudge recipes and tastes more like cheesecake.

The addition of mint extract gives it a wintery flavor but you can edit it out if you prefer pure chocolate.  It’s incredibly easy to make and it’s one of my favorite treats to serve guests during the holidays!
