Chocolate Covered Christmas

Chocolate Covered Holiday Treats

With only 1 week left until Christmas, you better believe I am scrambling to make sure I get all my holiday baking and (no) baking finished. With holiday parties, an office potluck, cocktail parties, big family dinners, and Christmas brunch ahead of me in the next 7 days, any recipe saving me time and energy is welcomed with open arms.

Is there a more perfect food than chocolate to share this time of year? Boxes of chocolate shared and received, hot chocolate sipped by the fire, homemade fudge, bark, and mint chocolate everything.  Chocolate is perhaps the holiday’s most loved ingredient.

Today I’m sharing two new last-minute ideas for holiday treats. With them, I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite chocolate covered goodies. Most of which I’ll be making again this week. I’m up to my arms in chocolate here. Find yourself scrambling to make something sweet this week?  I’ve got plenty of solutions.

    Ugh. I want to spend Christmas at your place! At my in-laws, we’ve had bad store bought vanilla ice cream as Christmas dessert for years. And only ice cream. Oh, and frozen berries. Mmm. 🙁

    Everything here looks delightful! Party at Saaaally’s. 😀
