CHOCOLATE REINDEER BARK BY PHOODIE + MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL! 0
December 7, 2016
“It’s the MOST Won-der-ful time of the yeaaaaaaaar!”
It really is.
And for so many reasons!
Work’s out (for a short while anyway!)
…..and Christmas is on it’s way!
Apart from all of the ‘serious stuff’, to me, Chrissy is about receiving gifts and stuffing one’s face! What could be better!?
Ohhhh… GIVING gifts! Yes, yes, that’s right, it DOES feel better to give then to receive…. sometimes…
But WHAT to give to the person 1) who has everything 2) who you don’t know that well 3) who you don’t want to spend a million dollars on?!
Fabulously and deliciously cute Reindeer Chocolate bark! I normally use dark chocolate but you can definitely mix it up and use milk or white to suit the recipients tastes!
In other news…..I am taking a little bit of time off over December! You’ll still find me hanging out on Social Media though, on FACEBOOK – www.facebook.com/phoodieblog and on INSTAGRAM -www.instagram.com/phoodiegram) And with that said, I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas (if you celebrate) and a wonderfully sunny ‘Festive Season’ (if you’re not a Christmas person!)
Thank you SO much for all of your support in 2016! I look forward to an even bigger, brighter, better and tastier 2017!
