Christmas Chocolates Winners

Thank you so much for sending me your Christmas food traditions.  I was sincerely touched by all of them. You have some amazing family traditions stories. I'm wondering how I can fit them all into one the month of December.  I have decided to have you all adopt me into your family so that I can experience all of your fabulous Christmas traditions.  Aarthi my family and I would like to adopt you and your traditions from India.  We stood around the computer and read about the fabulous foods your make while our mouths were watering.

I remember many traditions from my childhood, but I remember special treats brought to our house by neighbors the most.  Every gift  was a homemade delight.   Liala's Norwegian cookies topped the list.  Today our family looks forward to Becky's Baklava (we say with reverence) or Lisa homemade fudge sauce (amazing).
I think we have become so busy with the holidays that these homemade traditions are starting to fade.   I believe we need to pass them on to our children and grandchildren.  Let the legacy continue.

Thank you for making my Christmas so wonderful with your stories and traditions.  I am in awe with how much you do.

The winners for the chocolates giveaway are via

Megan Trueblood from New York
Joni Larsen Marshall from Stansbury Park, Utah

Here are a couple of fabulous desserts you may want to consider for the holidays

Le Bete Noir  if you are a chocoholic.  This is a deep chocolate flourless torte.  It is so easy to make and can be made several days in advance.  It can also be frozen and removed from the freezer a few hours before you want to serve.  

 If you really want to impress everyone, try this Dark Chocolate Crepe Cake
I have posted this in three separate posts to make it less daunting.  

Two fabulous chocolate desserts that would completely impress your family and friends.
