I made a fun, festive cake for the party. Pictures of it are to come later because you can't get the full effect of the cake until you actually cut a piece of it! Here's a picture of the prepping for the cake..
I also made some Christmas Cookie Brittle to take over. It was super easy to make and put our red and green Christmas chocolate chips to good use!
Christmas Cookie Brittle Recipe
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups chocolate chips
1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Gradually add flour and mix well. Add in chocolate chips.
2. Line a 15in x 10in baking pan with foil and then spray with cooking spray.
3. Press the dough into the pan. Sprinkle with any remaining chocolate chips.
4. Bake at 350' for 20-25 minutes. Cool and then invert pan and remove foil. Break the brittle into pieces and enjoy!
This recipe can be easily altered by adding nuts, pecans, m&ms, or different color chocolate chips depending on the occasion!
After all of the presents were wrapped I did a little blogging and sipped on a cup of hot chocolate. Between blogging and hot chocolate sipping, I also painted my nails for the party tomorrow.
How are you getting into the Christmas spirit?
