The story behind this Christmas Crack
Every year, I put together treat baskets to send out to family, friends & referring offices. One year I posted a video on SnapChat about how I made my version of this & while I love it, it’s time consuming, a little pricey & extremely messy. People love when I make it but to be completely honest, I actually hated making it. Yet every stinkin’ year, like clockwork, I would get several requests for it. This treat is so delicious I have named it Christmas Crack because you will get hooked!
A couple of years ago, that’s 2 years according to my hubbys definition (SnapChat reference), my girlfriend Tiff sent me her version & let me tell you, I have been hooked ever since. Part of the reason is that it’s so yummy and the other reason is that I didn’t have to make it! LOL
This year, my friend Tiff shared her recipe with me. I was amazed at how few ingredients it required, how fast it took & how delicious it is. I Snapchatted me making it & after getting Tiff’s permission, I’m able to share it with you all.
BUT FIRST I MUST WARN YOU…
You MUST make the first batch for yourself! You MUST!! It is the prerequisite for this recipe. You will understand & thank me later. If you fail to follow that rule, you will find yourself picking from every single batch you make thereafter, eat more then you should & short-change others. So trust me when I say, make the first batch for yourself to enjoy as you make more for others.
