This is a delicious treat that’s perfect for holiday gift giving! It’s so easy to make and decorate. The hazelnut flavor is amazing – this is great for topping off ice cream or any sweet treat. After it’s been jarred, just heat some in the microwave for a few seconds to make it thinner and warm, and drizzle it on anything you like. And don’t be afraid to lick the spoon – you know you want to! : )
I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and a lovely New Year too! Thanks for reading – there are lots of fun things planned for Beckster’s Laboratory in 2011!
