We’ve been busy in the kitchen making Christmas sweets and treats! At the same time, we’re in the process of making some much needed renovations to this site – Camellia’s Cottage! Still. Here’s what we’ve been up to- There’s Classic Christmas Fudge-
We intended to make some chocolate truffles but got sidetracked making some adorable Chocolate Mice!
Then, there’s Alabama Pralines… an amazing recipe which doesn’t require a candy thermometer!
And we couldn’t leave off the old Southern Favorite- Divinity… she’s finicky at times, though this time- this batch turned out pretty as a picture!
We’ve made Sugared Apricots…
And! Three batches of Toffee! Amazing how butter and sugar can be boiled up into that luscious golden crunch with milk chocolate or semi sweet and toasted chopped pecans blend into this amazing candy!
Tomorrow is pound cake making day, with Mimi’s Pound Cake making a welcome appearance! These will be gifts for some very special family members !
Hopefully, these Christmas Sweets will be welcome additions on Holiday Tables! I hope your Christmas Sweet and Treat making is going well… would love to hear what you’ve been making!
Love y’all, Camellia
* Follow us on Instagram as we continue the renovations. We’ll continue to share a post or two in the meantime. Then by the New Year, hopefully you’ll find more user friendly recipes and shopping lists too!
