Less than 2 weeks to go until Christmas! Are you ready?

We had a Christmas Party on Saturday night which officially put us in the holiday spirit! Since Thanksgiving I had been making cookies and treats prepping for the party including this Butterscotch Pretzel Toffee!

I sent everyone who would take it home with a goodie bag full of cookies and toffee because we won’t be home for Christmas and Walter doesn’t have a big sweet tooth, so if not in their goodie bags there’s only one other place they could end up… my belly! And because people LOVE goodie bags! Society has this misconception that they are just for kids, but you will never see a smile so bright as an adult offered a goodie bag. Trust me.

They evoke so much joy, bringing back sweet childhood memories. Back then, was a party without a goodie bag even a party?!

Heads up, make sure you press the pretzels into the butterscotch. With the first batch I made I had trouble with the pretzels not sticking!
