Happy Boxing Day everyone!! Over the next four days, I will bring you ideas for New Year’s Eve. We start with White Chocolate Lollipops for New Year’s Eve that has a more sophisticated adult appeal than for kids but the beauty of this dessert is that you can custom make them to anyone that is coming over.
I can envision these treats with candy on them like candy canes, smarties, crushed peppermint candies, mini gumdrops. The list is endless. These can also be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. A perfect little dessert for New Year’s when you may have had lots over the holidays already.
I have left the ingredient measures open for you so you can play around with toppings and the amount you would like to make. Have fun, be creative, and enjoy!!
