The holidays are approaching. I'm more excited this year than I've been in awhile. I think it definitely has something to do with having a little one.
Would you like a recipe for a holiday treat that makes a great gift?
It actually can't even really be considered a "recipe" I wouldn't say.
White chocolate covered cranberries are a very, very tasty treat. All you have to do is buy raw, fresh cranberries and dip them in melted white chocolate or actually a white almond bark product something like this. Most grocery stores carry it too and I don't think it's that expensive. Then you just let them dry.
It's not at all hard but it does require a lot of patience *or* a group of really fun people to work with so that you're totally distracted from the mindless task you're repeating.
These photos all came from several years ago actually (pre-blogging days for me) as you can see by the date stamp. I had the privilege of working with a bunch of really cool, selfless and hardworking people in the singles group at my church to make up a zillion bags of these to be sold at the "Incredible Edibles" shoppe as part of the New Friends New Life Holiday Home Tour fundraiser.
New Friends New Life is a really incredible ministry that helps women who are involved in sexually oriented businesses to get out. It is a truly inspiring ministry. Please check out one of the links I've included if you'd like to learn more.
If you make white chocolate covered cranberries this holiday season, I'd love to know what you think.
Also, I'd love to hear from some of you who read my blog but don't usually comment. :)
When a girl's not on facebook she's got to hear from her friends somehow, right?
If you are someone who dipped cranberries, made cookie mixes, attended the NFNL home tour, or somehow found yourself reliving memories from this post, I'd love to hear from you in the comment section today! Thanks!! Kelly
