The Twelve Days of Holiday Treats!
Once again, this year, from December 1st-12th I’ll post a new holiday treat recipe every day – inspiration for your holiday entertaining!
The recipes I’m sharing are small batch (perfect for this year of smaller gatherings – each recipe makes 1-dozen or a few more smaller-sized treats) that are simple to prepare and that use everyday ingredients and equipment so hopefully you’ll be able to whip up any of these on a whim.
Today’s treat is a small-batch of brownies with glacé cherries and almonds folded through. Fudgy and dense, these are the perfect companion to your morning or afternoon coffee and they’re decadent enough to serve for dessert, maybe with a scoop of ice cream…
I’m not particularly fond of fruitcake for the holidays – it’s too heavy for me, mostly – but this is a nice compromise – and you could absolutely add different fruits and nuts here – I just happen to (secretly) love glacé cherries (the way they look and the way they pop in your mouth!).

Okay, this is the first day I wasn’t thrilled with my treat. It seemed a bit discombobulated – though perhaps that makes it the PERFECT treat for 2020! 😉
Not bad at all…I just found myself thinking it could not decide whether it was a chocolate’ cherry or almond treat.
Hmm well that’s too bad – and all the more for me! And it’s supposed to be a chocolate, cherry AND almond treat! 😉
