Christmas: Top 10 Songs

I’m one of those people who love Christmas, yet I refuse to listen to Christmas music and decorate before we hit December 1st. For me Christmas is December and not October and November. I’m kinda getting tired of mall/shopping centers and other stores already decorating for Christmas in October, I mean come on – that’s 2 months before!
Anyways.. The point of this post is not to complain it’s to share my Top 10 Christmas songs, hope you enjoy :D

1. Last Christmas (technically not a x-mas song, but whatever)
2. Jingle Bells
3. White Christmas
4. Happy Christmas (War is Over)
5. Jingle Bell Rock
6. All I Want for Christmas Is You
7. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
8. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
9. Silent Night
10. Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer

Oat Balls

In Denmark we do a lot of different treats for Christmas and this is one of them. There are so many differents recipes and almost every Dane makes them differently, but here you’ll get my recipe :)

This recipe will make around 25-35 balls

Ingredients

175 g of Cooking Oats
100 g of Powdered/confectioners sugar
4½ tbsp of Cocoa powder
½ tsp of Pure vanilla powder
100-135 g of Soft butter

You cansubstitute some of the butter and sugar with honey. You can add orange zest, alcohol, cinnemon and so on, only your imagination is the limit. Just remember that you need to be able to form balls of the “dough”, so it should be too dry, too sticky or too wet!

How to

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl then add the butter and combine it with your hands. Yes this is messy and your hands will be dirty, but it’s worth it in the end! Form balls and coat them in cocoa powder, shredded coconut or powdered sugar. Let them set in the fridge for at least 2 hours and enjoy :D The balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days

Halloween
