12 Days of Christmas 2017, Day 9: [Recipe] Coconut Mounds

Coconut mounds filled with cherries and chocolate chips. These little morsels make a cute little addition to your plate of sweets.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but this year especially, I am keeping these recipes simple. I have a three year old – suffice to say that life is busy and mama’s tired. Not too tired to bake these though.

12 Days of Christmas 2017, Day 3: [Recipe] Cranberry Orange Fluff

On the list of things I don’t get sick of during the holidays – fruitcake, a cup of tea, jammie days, tins of chocolate creams, fresh snow, and anything cranberry orange.

This “salad” is a really nice light dessert that can be served after a heavy meal, or a delicious treat to have waiting in the fridge for a Christmas morning accompaniment to gift opening.
