Thank you to my Bunnings bro for sort-of helping me find the watering can
Over Christmas, I tried and fell in love with a White Chocolate and Hazelnut Ball recipe from a PHILADELPHIA cream cheese cookbook (free with the purchase of multiple Philly products at Coles). It was so simple yet so well-received, with multiple cousins and aunts asking for the recipe (the ultimate sign of enjoyment, no?). The recipe makes two balls the size of a large peach and are delicious served on a platter with Anna’s Ginger Thins (a traditional Swedish ginger cookie that I found in Coles supermarket). A pate knife to spread finishes the plate nicely. What a nifty idea to serve in place of dessert over a hot drink.
