Each Christmas I bake ‘take home’ treats for my work colleagues. Usually I have a back log of ideas of what to make, but this year was proving difficult. Until I came across a post for Apple Cider Caramels here.
I decided to make them yesterday and if the divine smell of warm apple cider bubbling away was anything to go by, I just know they are going to taste amazing! I have to wrap them tonight, so surely no one will notice if a few pieces go missing!
I also had my first attempt at making nougat – cranberry, pistachio & almond. So far so good. It looked just like nougat should look, but I'm determined to allow it plenty of time to set before trying to cut it.
Tonight I will be busy in the kitchen again as tomorrow we’re celebrating an office get together and exchange of secret santa gifts. I’m making chocolate mousse verines with hazelnut toffee and if I have time, eggnog macarons. Fingers crossed everything turns out OK…
