“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev’rywhere you goooooo…..”
The snow is on the ground, and Christmas songs are on the radio and I was feeling quite festive today. I realized I had a fairly free day with no formal appointments, and no need to do any Christmas shopping, so what else is a holiday elf to do? Bake!
I made the family cookies that my mom used to make. Mom called them “bon-bons” although that’s typically a term used to describe candies covered in chocolate. In this case, bon-bons are cookies surrounding a surprise inside; a surprise that could be a cherry, or Hershey’s kiss, or pecan, or anything else the baker might want to include.
So today I made bon-bons with nice big dark chocolate Hershey Kisses inside, and I wrapped them up and delivered them to my clients who had closed or leased homes this year. I definitely think this could become a tradition, although next time I’m thinking I should wear a Santa hat and some jingle bells.
Ho ho ho.
