Have you heard of the saying “Life is like chocolate, sometimes you gotta deal with nuts.” I can literally relate to this kidder, since I’m currently going through a rough patch with certain people. And I actually deemed them nuts, at least in my brain. However, I know that this too shall pass. I know I must just let things run their course. After all, it’s Christmas time. Nobody likes a melancholic Holiday season.
Wait, this post gets better. What I’m about to give you is something you can certainly serve on your Christmas table, and your friends and family might even give you a standing ovation. And of course, it has nuts (walnuts, my favorite!) and the sweetness and tanginess of raspberry.
I hope you, chocoholics, have a Merry Christmas. Enjoy the Holidays, y’all! And don’t stress out if you still don’t have Christmas dessert recipes on hand, you can go over this blog and stumble upon chocolate recipes that could make your Christmas all the merrier!
