I’m brainstorming all sorts of sweet, gifting treats for us to make this month, and lemme tell you… it’s an exercise in self-control.
Actually… it’s more like observations in my utter lack of self-control.

This recipe comes from the Guittard Chocolate Cookbook. Full of so many delicious things. I’m making Chocolate Caramels next. I won’t be stopped.
