Twelve days to Christmas guys! If you have not started to think on Xmas baking, it is the time! In the past week I have been busy preparing edible presents that keep long and most probably will survive the postal handling. It is all very important because this year we stay at home for Christmas, the first time. Instead of us going to Hungary, my parents come to visit which is great, but it also means that I do not get to see my friends this Xmas. I really miss them.
Usually I prepare a bunch of cookies, pralines, chocolate treats but this year I was looking for more simple sweet, which is (1) not heavy, (2) most probably everyone like, (3) does not require special cooling and (4) very easy to make. Easy is a key factor since I have a very demanding daughter (according to my husband she is just like me....) and a ..... new job! Yep, I have a permanent photo job at a magazine, so currently I am busy with photographing to the February issue. Cannot tell how excited I am about this assignment! I must say, this year has been fantastic, can not wait what good things next year is going to bring.
Anyway, so here we go, I ended up making these sweet, crunchy treats. I just provide some examples, but really you can spice it up whit whatever you like.
