This year, we have decide to choose a theme for our Christmas and it is :’Bonbon’ (candy).
I guess we need that, a theme, since we are away on the road as expatriates far far away from our families and hometown.
Well, for something that I would normally find a bit tacky, having a theme can actually be pretty fun. So today, in all my glory of doing christmas shopping, which I just love to do, I went to my ever trusting friend of a store and found everything I needed to fill my house with bonbon colors!
Ok, not to repeat myself once more but we are in Mexico after all, the land of dolce and sweet! Oh, the colors those mexicans have around here are amazing. My imagination could take forever to set down on a choice here.
So now, my christmas tree is wrapped around huge pink ribbon, yes pink! and all my christmas gift will wear a pretty ribbon the color of candies!
Ok, I need life. Here some recipes published here two years ago, about candies!
Skorr bars (taste just like the chocolate candy bar Skorr)
Sucre à la crème (cream toffee, french style)
