Christmas cookies! It's always been apart of my childhood to make cookies for christmas with my family. Mom and I managed to find a day when we both were off at the same time so we took the oppertunity to make some christmas cookies together. I saw these cute Reindeer gingerbread cookies online that I wanted to attempt. We decided to be lazy and bought the ready cookie dough from the grocery store. It turned out that I did not have a round cookie cutter so we used a drinking glass to cut out the cookies instead. When they were done in the oven I let them cool off before I started to create the reindeer! Mom made a choclate icing that worked really good, but I think melted chocolate might work good as well. I put the icing in a piping bag and made a really small cut in the tip. For the nose we bought our traditional swedish Non Stop but I'm sure that red M&M's are perfect too. A really simply but cute cookie. I practiced on some of our burnt cookies a few times before I felt satisfied and started using my red non stop. And the result you can see below! What chirstmas cookies are you making this year? 
My reindeer gingerbread cookies!
  
First I practiced with the icing on some burnt cookies to get the reindeer looking right. 
One of my favorite parts about christmas are moments together making cookies.
Red Non Stop or M&M's are perfect to make these cute little rudolf cookies. 
Nothing like seeing the snow outside and the scent of fresh gingerbread cookies!
Close up! What christmas cookies are you making this year?

Date Night

Food

What's your kind of saturday night? i have to say that I got to spend mine my favorite kind of way last night; in sweatpants, with snacks and both my guys beside me. Jake and I put together an incredible tray of snacks and made us a comfy little date night in the couch after a long week of work. On the tray we put grapes, crackers, strawberries, cheese, salami, chocolate from Toms and sour cream and onion flavored cashews. A simple but the most valuable kind of evenings in front of the TV together. Wishing everybody a safe and beautuful Sunday night! 
Jake and I put together this amazing tray of snacks for our date night in! 
I also tried the new chocolate from Toms with Ferrari candy pieces.

Bueno Cupcakes

Food

Two of my favorite things; Kinder chocolate and cupcakes! So why not mix them both? I recently made these amazing Bueno Cupcakes for my niece. They are so simple and oh so good! I used a chocolate cupcake recipe that I know I like instead of the one in the link (but that one works perfect as well) and then I made the frosting using Nutella to get that hazelnut flavor that the Kinder bueno has! For the icing I used piping bags and a piping tip in plastic that I could buy at the local grocery store, they are usually located by the plastic bags. So if you also feel like making these amazing cupcakes here's the link to the recepie that I followed: http://thebakingexplorer.com/nutella-bueno-cupcakes/ .  
These can be the perfect friday treat after a long week of work and a fun activity for the whole family! Warning for a kitchen mess but I mean that's what saturdays are for right? If you have any questions about the recipe and how I converted it, please ask! Have a wonderful weekend!
One package of Kinder Bueno is enough for 8 cupcakes!
My Kinder Bueno Cupcakes, a yummy Friday treat!
 
 
Don't forget to also buy Choco Sprinkles for the decoration of the frosting!
