How is the Christmas preparation going on ?? Well at my side, I am super busy baking these days...I have to gift my friends and teachers of lil A nursery something and I couldnt think of anything other than home baked goodies...I wanted to gift something which looked beautiful and thats why I choose this Chocolate crinkles which I had bookmarked from Nisha's space long time ago. Baked 2 batches of it yesterday and already gifted two bags of it, one bag for a friend who is flying away for Christmas and one for my neighbour who is expecting a baby for Christmas ! I did save some for us before giving away everything and we all loved it :) Thanks to Nisha for sharing this fools proof recipe !
