December certainly is a month of indulgence. In my preparation of delicious food for the Christmas period, I've made some old fashioned toffees. 

I mixed 3 dl of cream, 3 dl of sugar and 1 1/2 dl of golden syrup and cooked it until it reached 125 degrees Celsius. I then poured the toffee onto greased baking paper and let it cool before cutting up into small pieces. They were then wrapped in festive paper, put in a jar and hidden away in the cold garage. 

Hidden away? Well yes, if left in the kitchen they would all be gone within a few days. I'm able to keep things until Christmas but the two younger family members find it impossibly difficult. They will just have to wait a little while longer :).
