And for the last two weeks I had Holiday Open Houses in a few of our stores ๐Ÿ™‚

I made tons of sweet treats, shared my recipes and displayed those goodies in different ways as gifts, to give customers ideas on for Holiday gift giving.

I made fudge, bark, Christmas crack, Holiday muddy buddy mix, snowman soup among other things, I had over 20 recipes to share. ย It was lots of fun, I had Christmas music playing (under my table), I gave everyone lots of ideas for their Christmas gifts.

Check out some of the pictures

Now I knew it was Chocolate and to me it looked like Corn Flakes.
Well I ask my New Friend Melanie from France and she came through and they are “Rose des Sables” ย pretty much Chocolate and Corn Flakes ๐Ÿ™‚
