Christmas candy...

Today's being spent making Christmas candy. A tradition we keep to every year. Mum makes her special Christmas toffee (a kinda chocolatey one which is just sooo nice) and I make the rest. Over the years we have varied the types a bit but there are a few that we have stuck with.

My Christmas journal page (sorry!) has been made in Swedish for this specific subject (which I by the way wanted to have in my book so I didn't follow the prompt). The reason is that most of the ingredients are Swedish anyway and there would be no point in translating them as there might not be an English equivalent.

I find there's something so cosy with making your own Christmas candy. It's one of those days when you really feel that "Christmas is coming".


...and now I'm off to wrap all the presents!!
