We had a White Christmas for the first time in YEARS. It was fun waking up to a winter wonderland. By afternoon the roads were better so we headed out to take pictures and venture to Starbucks for lattes. Plus, I had to get at least one more Cranberry Bliss Bar...those things are my WEAKNESS.
Christmas was a lot of fun. We woke up early on Christmas morning to exchange gifts, enjoy our fireplace and make Cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Josh outdid himself with my gift this year...a dainty white gold necklace and fluffy pink robe. He was pretty excited about his new guitar from moi. ;-)
Christmas in Paris? My favorite shot from the snow day. The Eiffel tower is an antique perfume bottle that my mom found for me a long time ago. Christmas in Paris was actually the theme of my parent's Christmas dinner. ;-)
Funny Story: On Christmas Eve morning I got up early to make Tiger Butter Bars. They were going to be my contribution to Christmas dinner on my side of the family. They take about an hour from prep time to chill time to make so I wanted to get them done early in the day. Once finished Josh and I tasted a couple with a glass of milk and they were a hit. So as we whiz down the highway going to my moms house, I reach behind me to pick up the said chocolate concoction only to realize I FORGOT THE PAN OF TIGER BUTTER BARS.Only me.
Anyway. They have a crunchy texture of peanut butter goodness and layered with melted chocolate chips. Rich and yummy!
Tiger Butter Bars
1 Cup Butter, melted
1 1/2 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/2 cup pretzel crumbs
2 Cups Confectioner Sugar
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup White Chocolate Chips
In a large mixing bowl combine butter, graham crackers, pretzels, sugar and peanut butter. Mix until a creamy/sticky mixture forms. Layer in large un-greased baking pan. In a microwave safe bowl melt chocolate chips in 30 second increments until smooth. Layer over the top of the bars. Then melt 1/2 a cup of white chocolate chips and spoon onto the top of the mixture. Using a butter knife, swirl the mixture to create a marbled effect. Chill for at least 1 hour.
