If you’re still looking for a simple but tasty homemade gift or treat to share this season, these little raw raspberry chocolates could not be easier to make and they make a nice finale to any holiday meal.  They’re a total crowd pleaser too; set out a tray of these after dinner and see how quickly they’re scooped up!

What I love about them is that you can whip them up in no time since they’re one of those melt, stir and pour numbers that’s super convenient to make at the last minute.  All you’ll need are a handful of ingredients as well as a little bit of time to let them cool until they set in the fridge and you’re done.

The sweet smell of chestnuts roasting in the air is one of those scents of the season that truly embodies the spirit of the holidays.

A special treat enjoyed only around this time of year, the warm cozy aroma leaves the house smelling so wonderfully inviting as they crackle and pop in the heat.  It never feels quite like the holidays without digging into a pile of roasted chestnuts at least once or twice.
