Ahhhh.....the holidays are here. It's a great time of year to blow off your diet, enjoy way to much chocolate and egg nog, and of course partake in holiday baking! This year I used the Bake Sweet Memories site to get inspiration and yummy recipes. My favorite was the Easy Grasshopper Bars. They were oh so delicious and the perfect blend of chocolate and minty goodness!
