Okay, whoa!

Is it December, already!?

┏(・o・)┛♪┗ (・o・) ┓

This is me in the mirror as I get excited thinking about how quick a whole year is about to come to an end.

I hope I’m not alone when it comes to enjoying this festive month.

Don’t you just love how every corner of every street just gets lit up with fairy lights and fancy Christmas trees and laughing Santa outside every sweet shop posing with kids and giving them presents from their bags?

 

This calls for celebrating the last month of the year with an overload of food, k?

I want to know what y’all will be doing this December and how you plan to spend it?

I’m just going to be here in my kitchen, if you need me, baking and cooking and eating and getting fatter and not giving a sh*t about it. (Ummm, what are New Year’s Resolutions for?) 😉

Surprisingly, these gingerbread truffles are a much healthier version as it is made with raw chocolate and sweetened with molasses.

If you plan on giving these as edible gifts (which is a brilliant idea, by the way) I’d suggest you make a big batch of these babies because before you know it, half the truffles are going to slide inside your tummy.

 

I love how before you even let your taste buds decide what’s going on with the truffles, a mere whiff of these beauties will scream GINGERBREAD and once your brain is already prepped for the festive burst of flavors in your mouth, you know you’re going to celebrate Christmas each time you pop these in your mouth.

  1. Ooh, beautiful photos, Samina! I sure wish I lived near to you so that you could give me a box of these for Christmas … haha! That’s if they didn’t all ‘slide’ into your tummy before you could give them to me!
    Love these, Samina … I love gingerbread anything actually, but these look sublime!

  2. Ok Samina. Let me tell you something. First, these truffles look seriously amazing, and I swear that you should send me a dozen because I need them in my tummy. BUT, more importantly, I am *blown* away by these photos. I am seriously, seriously, seriously loving the moody look. I don’t know how you did it girl, but these are amazing photos and the lighting is phenomenal! Pinned! Twice, so I don’t forget it! xoxo

  3. I love Christmastime and these truffles are precisely the kind of delicious decadent treats to savor at this time of year. You’ve captured how luscious they are!

  4. I love Christmas but can’t believe December came so fast this year though. these truffles are perfect for all the holiday gift giving! They look so decadent and amazing! Love the gingerbread flavors too!

  5. So, these are a-freakin-maze-ing. And I am so glad to have come across your blog (via vermont creamery’s pin– random I know.) Why I haven’t before stumps me completely, and I am so glad to follow you now. Your photos are stunning. Love that you used raw chocolate too.
