The holiday baking season is upon us. It’s my favorite time of year and I’m excited to try out a few new recipes. I was browsing the Cooking Up Good website for some inspiration. It’s a great resource with tons of recipes, sweepstakes, loyalty programs, coupons and more. Nothing says a holiday party to me like a cheese ball. Two varieties stick out to me sweet and savory.
When I spotted the cocoa almonds in Walmart I was inspired to create a candy bar dip. The fun sleigh display had a great selection of seasonal nuts beautifully packaged and ready to gift. Who wouldn’t #GoNutsForNuts for a fun hostess gift.
