I'm sure you've all heard of Hot Chocolate Bombs, they were all the trend this holiday season on Tiktok. Well, for New Year's Eve, I thought I'd spike them for a little added fun. And with that, I give you my Boozy New Year's Eve Ball Drop Bombs! These bombs have all the usual favorites of a regular hot chocolate bomb, chocolate, hot cocoa powder, marshmallows and chocolate chips. The kicker to my recipe is the Kahlua! And of course the uber cute added sparkly silver sprinkles to resemble the New Year's Eve Ball in Times Square NYC.

I’m going to be honest. Taking on 12 Days of Christmas Desserts was a huge undertaking for the first year of my blog. If you’re new here, I started my blog, officially, back in July. I may have gotten a little behind, which is why it is the 24th of December and I am still cranking out those last few recipes – but I will complete my 12 Days!

Since there’s not a ton of time left, I’ll give you an easy one. And most likely (fingers crossed) you’ll have all the ingredients sitting in your pantry to make them. So, without further ado, today we are making Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls – YUM!!!

Are you familiar with the traditional Christmas song “Here We Come a-Wassailing”? Wassailing is an old British tradition in which people would visit the orchards and fruit trees, leading up to Christmas, while singing and banging on pots and pans. This was in order to ward off bad spirits and ensure a bountiful harvest in the new year. The owners of the land would then offer up a spiced cider (usually spiked with some sort of alcohol) to the Wassailers as a thank you.

Why am I telling you all of this? Well today I am sharing my Wassail recipe with you. Just like the Brits used it when warding off the bad spirits in the orchards, maybe we can all use it to ward off the bad spirits of 2020, and hope we get a better 2021! Alright, so I know I'm stretching the "dessert" title just a little bit today, but in my opinion, dessert beverages are just as important as any other dessert. Now, the recipe I am sharing with you today is non-alcoholic, but if it suits your fancy, you can definitely add in some spiced rum or bourbon to get your blood pumping.

12 Days of Christmas Desserts - Day 8 - Crème Brûlée!

User Rating: 0 / 5

 

 

Crème Brûlée is one of my all-time favorite desserts. It's honestly something I really miss about going out to eat at a restaurant. You see, for almost all of my birthdays from middle school through college, I would order Crème Brûlée at a restaurant for a special occasion. Whether that be a birthday, graduation or any small victory in between. Crème Brûlée not only tastes great, but when you get it in a restaurant, oftentimes, they'll torch the top right in front of you. And I'm all for dinner and a show. As much as I love supporting restaurants right now, Crème Brûlée is probably not going to work for a takeout order. But I'm here to tell you, YOU can recreate this incredibly creamy, decadent dessert at home! And guess what, it's waaayyyy easier to make than you think. Usually, I make Crème Brûlée every year on New Year's Eve. However, this year I feel like we deserve to have it early (and possibly for both holidays)!
