Blogmas day 4! – A little bit of baking!

Hello beautiful people!
Today has been a nice relaxing day, I slept in a little bit and then got up and opened my calendars like always! The polish today is actually a bottle of the famous Ciate Cavier which I’ve tried before and really liked wearing, although they do fall off throughout the course of an evening. These little pearls are so pretty and I think they would make a really gorgeous accent nail!

Today’s Christmas movie is actually one of my all time favourite rom com’s – The Holiday, such a great story and Jude Law is just delicious eye candy.

I was in the mood to do a little baking today so I found a recipe for Candy Cane Kiss cookies on Sally’s Baking Addiction which is a great site if you like to bake! and I thought I’d give it a whirl. I linked the full recipe, so I wont go into too much detail about the steps but I took some photos throughout the process!

Of course you’ve got to make sure you have all the ingredients and tools before you start a baking adventure!

The smell of butter and sugar being mixed is absolutely divine. Also I had Michael Buble’s Christmas album playing the whole time I was baking these little guys.

We have dough! Once you hit this step you just roll it into little balls and then you get to roll them in colourful sprinkles!

Into the oven for 8 to 10 minutes!

Looking very good! now you let them sit for 5 minutes, then you get to add the kisses

I went with chocolate and candy cane kisses because not everyone likes mint! Once you stick the kisses in you have to pop them in the freezer for another 5 minutes so the chocolate doesn’t melt too much.

After they come out of the freezer you’re ready to enjoy your candy cane cookies! which are delicious, let me tell you!

That’s it for today! Carmen and I are going out this evening to pick up a couple of gifts for a Christmas party we have coming up so hopefully the mall wont be too busy!
Until tomorrow,
xoxo
