Welcome back to the first week of December. Eeek!

The most wonderful time of year has finally arrived. And no words could truly describe how thrilled I am. We had a great Thanksgiving enjoying family, taking some time off, and just hanging out. I am ready to take this season by its jingle bells, ha!

The Deliciously Yum halls are fully decked, my Christmas baking list is already getting longer, and Christmas music has officially taken over my life. As have Christmas movies and all things peppermint.

It’s by far the most iconic and well loved Christmas flavor if you ask me.

Since peppermint patties are the things I can’t get enough of right now, I got the idea for these truffles while unwrapping yet another patty and wishing that peppermint chocolates perhaps with a little bit of a crunch could be part of my already wonderful peppermint patty experience.

These truffles hit the nail on the head. So good you most definitely need to try them for yourself! [Read more…]

Caramel Corn infused with cinnamon and tossed with 5 different types of nuts. Let the crunching begin!

Caramel Corn. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear those words? Summer’s on the top of my list. I don’t know why, but every time we visit a fair, especially the MN State Fair, caramel corn or kettle corn spreads its wonderful aroma across the streets for my nose to find. I usually try to avoid buying any because I hate being stuck with a ginormous bag that I can’t stop eating out of for the rest of our time there.

Plus, I need two free hands to hold the bucket of warm chocolate chip cookies, the best grilled pork chops and whatever else on-a-stick I can find. Can you tell I am getting ready to visit the great MN get-together? Unfortunately, it’s still over a month until we get to go, but it’s never too early to start planning and dreaming about the food we’re going to devour.

So I am getting started by making my own caramel corn, which means I can stay hands free and indulge in caramel corn any time I want! [Read more…]
