I wanted to make something a little festive for my family and found this recipe.  It was a winner in my house so I’d like to pass it along!

With all the craziness going on in our world right now it can be a challenge to find certain ingredients but I’m hopeful that you already have these ones in your kitchen or that you’re able to easily find them. 

Hope you enjoy!
