Coffee Toffee from

There was a time during my twenty-something single days when I would walk down the ice cream aisle at the grocery store every week, and if my favorite flavor was on sale, I bought it. And then I would eat it late at night while binge watching Friends DVDs (this was before Netflix, kids).

Almost more than anything about this time of year, I look forward to the holiday treats. (Is that really any surprise?) But while I love gobbling up the cookies and candy, I enjoy giving it all away to friends and family more. Homemade treats are some of my favorite gifts to give. Everyone is sure to love them, and it’s a great excuse for me to have some fun in the kitchen without feeling guilty about eating it all afterward.

I’ve eaten a whole batch of cookies before, I really have. And it doesn’t feel so good. Sharing them with others feels so much better!
