Little Cook In The Big City

happy saturday to all! so i have been lucky enough to know the she told you so ladies for almost 15 years now (which makes me feel old). i started a cooking blog this year and feel like they have been some of my biggest supporters. when they asked me to do a guest blog post, i couldn't have jumped on it faster!

december has always been my favorite time of year. i was born on christmas day (i was due in february - imagine my parent's surprise!) so it's an especially important time for me. it's also the time of year when the food is the best - time to eat sweet treats while sitting around a fire in your pajamas. to maximize stretchy pants time, here are a few extremely fast but insanely delicious treats that will be sure to impress your taste buds as well as anyone around who may be lucky enough to share the holidays with you.

peppermint bark with a twist
1. melt 1 cup of milk chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals
2. spread onto a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil and put into freezer
3. meanwhile, melt 1 cup of hershey kiss candy cane chocolate kisses
4. spread on top of milk chocolate, and put back in freezer
5. chop up 1/2 c. peppermint candy
6. sprinkle with remaining peppermint and let sit in freezer for at least 30 min
7. remove and break into chunks by hand

white chocolate raspberries
1. take clean raspberries. pop one white chocolate chip into each raspberry. repeat. keep in fridge until served. easy enough!

salted rolo toasted pecan pretzel bites
1. heat oven to 350 degrees
2. line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with criss crossed pretzels
3. top each pretzel with one rolo candy
4. take 1 cup of pecans, spread on another baking sheet, and toast in oven for 7 minutes
5. put pretzels and rolos in oven for 4 minutes
6. remove and immediately press pecan in chocolate
7. sprinkle with sea salt

happy holidays!
