    Hi Cara! 🙂
    I just wanted to say that I really like your blog and your photography. All your foods look so tempting! (Maybe you can tell I’m a passionate dessert-lover?)
    May I ask which program you use for editing your photos? 🙂

    Greetings and a happy new year, Lara

  14. Oh my gosh! I just made peppermint chocolate bark yesterday and the flavour combo is amazing! I LOVE the look of your recipe (all of them actually, but I am particularly partial to the festive flavours right now 😉 ) Amazing work… as always! Fabulous! x

    • I just searched your bIog to find the peppermint chocolate bark but couldn’t find it. Now I know there is NO way you would tempt me with the idea of making a delicious without sending me the recipe (wink wink) 🙂 … xo

      • Aw, sweet, Cara! I *just* posted the recipe (plus a couple of others in the same post) now! The candies are called polkagrisar in Swedish and I believe they are vegan too. Christmas hugs and best wishes to you xx
