My favorite part of all is that other than taking some of the classes, I started volunteering there. I really love doing it. I am learning how things work behind the scenes, and it makes me so happy that I like it. It is my happy place.
I will put some recipes and photos of the Thai class that I took in a few days. Today I wanted to share some Christmas gift ideas with you that I learned at Gygi. They are all so incredibly simple and affordable.
Chocolate covered popcorn! Pretzel sticks dipped in caramel and chocolate! White chocolate peppermint bark!
And my favorite, the one I made last night for my little gifts, Chinese cookies dipped in Chocolate.
There really is no recipe. Just get some good chocolate, melt it in a microwave with a 30 seconds method (heat 30 seconds at a time and mix well in between until all the chocolate is melted). Get pretzels, popcorn, or whatever else you would like to dip and have fun with it.
I got a big bag of Chinese cookies with Christmas messages inside. I love it so much I will make extra ones to put on the table after Christmas Eve dinner, for all of us to open. I never ever compromised on my traditional Christmas Eve menu. But this is just simple and fun enough to include this year!
