Merry Christmas everyone! I’ve had a lovely few days relaxing having left my beloved job at Waterstone’s last week; it’s been incredibly hard to say goodbye to this job I’ve adored, but I’m so excited to begin my course with the Press Association in January, so that’s made leaving a little easier. I’ve bought an enormous stack of books to get me through the next year, so if anyone needs any recommendations let me know! I’m currently reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which is just awesome, I’m loving it so far.
So to round up the year I thought I’d make some treats for New Years Eve celebrations – I’m going to a house party with my friends and thought it would be a nice idea to have some snacks as well as the mass amount of alcohol that will be consumed, and as everyone is probably already aware of, I am in love with peanut butter. I found this recipe on the BBC GoodFood website and veganised it a little, and they taste so lovely, perfect for party food :)
So Happy New Years everyone, and let me know your resolutions, I need a little inspiration! Mine so far are: complete another 10km run, travel outside the UK, give blood at least twice, and read at least 20 books. Hopefully I’ll stick to them this year!
100g of smooth peanut butter
50g of softened vegan butter
