You may have already stocked up on decadent goodies from the store, but if the holidays dawned on you approximately six minutes ago, there is a good chance you can still make comforting treats with ingredients you already have in your pantry.
These boozy delights aren’t original (bourbon or rum balls have been a southern staple for eons) but I started making them a few years back when I wanted a pretty powdered sugar contrast on my Christmas cookie gift plates. They’re absurdly easy, decadent, and flexible to substitutions.
In its classic form, fromage fort is not a fancy thing to begin with. If you have some cheese, some seasonings, and some alcohol (or sparkling cider, for non-alcohol folks) that isn’t overly sweet, you can make this yummy snack for yourself.
As desserts go, the only rival to my love for chocolate is sweet cream with warming spices. Rice pudding is a humble favorite of mine, breathtakingly easy and almost always within reach.
