It is the first day of my holidays and I wanted to wish you a Happy Festive season, a Merry X-mas and a Wonderful Year to come!

May this period be filled with much love, joy and peace for you.

I also wanted to share a little festive treat with you- no stress no bake and simple to make… and no gluten, dairy or refined sugar either… Hope you like it..
