[Ad – includes press samples] I always get super excited at this time of year as the evenings draw in and the Christmas lights go up – even more so now I have babies to share in the magic of the festivities. One of my favourite things to do is start planning the delicious snacks we’ll be bringing out for guests in December! Admittedly it’s a bit of an excuse to have tasty treats in the house, and this year is no exception.
Today I’m sharing some of my favourite Christmas sweet and savoury treats. And while all of these items will make lovely gifts, they’re also very nice goodies to have in the cupboard too…
