These lovely little meringues mess with your head (they look minty, but were actually maple flavoured) - and totally worth it.
But I did make mint chocolate cupcakes:
The gingerbread variation on the cookie dough truffles might just have been better than the original.
Vanilla-Mint chocolate chip wreath cookies:
Pumpkin spice cookies
Like Nigella, I couldn't resist the snowflake cake pan - though I suspect I don't have the same kind of available storage that she does. Oh well - WORTH IT!
Sugar cookies - about half of the time I spent making this table was on the merry and bright cookies. The gift tag cookies are sitting on an misshapen edible plate I made out of mints - a project to be refined and tried again.
There were also some mint chocolate chip marshmallows - but they tasted much better than they photographed. Oh, and then there was this sparkling white cranberry sangria - which I may still be recovering from:
Did I mention that I made the "merry and bright" glitter banner? Because I DID.
It was a lovely, sparkly, green evening.
