P1130539

Tomorrow is again Twelfth Night - The 12th Day of Christmas and time again for a special cake!

If you missed celebrating Twelfth Night with me last year, pop over for a few lovely recipes - good contenders all for a final celebration of Christmas and the end of the season.

I don't know exactly why we don't celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas in America. Must research! I do think we are missing out big time!

Palæg Chokolade! One of my two favorite breakfast treats! (the other being Chocolade Hagel of course!)

Both are versions of chocolate made for topping toast! And what could be more welcome on a frosty morning! Even my beloved Lingonberries have had to step aside for this!

Men Love This One Too! Minty Chocolate Bars

P1130131

Another cookie that men love to eat! At for least the men in my life - these have been a favorite for years. There is just something irresistible about mint and chocolate together.

Mint Chocolate Bars is a very easy cookie treat to make. It takes a bit of time for each layer to cool between steps, but nothing hard here! Make up a batch and watch them disappear!

Men love this stuff! Trust me! Make a batch, put it in a tin and it will be a most welcome gift!

Added December 5th.  Notice the post date above!  As of this minute - the entire tin is gone!  My man simply could not keep his mitts off of these!

Making Almond Butter Crunch is very, very easy and is perfect for beginning candy makers.
