Why Air Fryers Are the Perfect Gift

Are you still looking for that last minute gift to get someone that has it all? I have yet to find a person that an Air Fryer isn’t the perfect git for (okay, I guess if I really thought about it I could find a few). Anyways, this is the best no-brainer gift to get that couple you’ve never really pinned down, to bring to a white elephant gift exchange (depending on the agreed-upon limit), or for any other friends and family you have yet to cross off your list.

Milk Chocolate Potato Chip Bark Recipe

Salty, sweet, and chocolatey, what’s not to love? This is a simple treat to throw together with only two ingredients and tastes ah-mazing. Salty and sweet is a classic and delicious combo but the crunch from the potato chips just puts this candy over the top. You don’t even need to temper the chocolate because it tempers as you make the bark! This is an effortless recipe anyone can make (even kids) and is great for gifts.

How to Take Your Advent Calendars to the Next Level (stuffer ideas)

Recently, it has come to my attention that most store-bought advent calendars in America are lame. Either they are filled with cheap and cruddy chocolate, made purely for kids, or very very expensive. Not in my house. I want the extravagant calendar filled with amazing treats but don’t want to break the bank. I want something besides chocolate (or something at least better than waxy chocolate) and that I’ll actually like or use after. So that’s what I do. I make our calendars customized to each person. Sometimes I make it go with their main Christmas gift and then really take the whole thing to the next level. Here are 15+ ideas on how to create the best advent calendar geared toward adults (but teens and such may like ’em too).

Caramel Filled Apple Ribbon Candy Recipe

I love making ribbon candy. It’s very rewarding, looks pretty when it’s done, and it’s impressive because many people don’t make it by hand anymore. This has been one of my favorite flavors and I can’t wait to share the art of ribbon candy with all you lovelies! The ribbon candy is green apple flavored and filled with caramel and it is freaking delicious. It tastes like those caramel apple lollipops that you can only get a month out of the year. This is a great treat to make for gifts or just for the challenge!
