Each year at Christmas time the LOML (Love Of My Life) bakes up several varieties of yummy cookies for our neighbors. He puts a LOT of work into these babies. He scours the internet for new and different recipes and no recipe is too time consuming or difficult for him. I always encourage him to keep it simple, but he’s all about the taste, no matter the effort. Then, after all his efforts, he’s perfectly fine with putting his creations on a cheap paper plate and covering them with ugly plastic wrap for delivery to the neighbors. He’s been doing this for 15+ years and each year I suggest he kick up his presentation a notch or two. He’s never interested. This year I figured, if it was important to me, then I should do something about it. So I did. Here’s what we co-created together. He was responsible for the cookies and I was responsible for the marshmallows and the packaging.
Props to LollyChops for coming up with the great hot cocoa packaging idea.
Iced Citrus Crackle Cookies
Homemade Marshmallows (little hearts – cut with a cookie cutter I bought at Bake It Pretty which I discovered from Miss B at Le Blahg. Thanks Miss B!)
Hot Cocoa Mix (store bought, but packaged with love)
I like how they turned out and they were worth the hours and hours of work!
