Fireball Bites #TasteCreations

For our December food, we selected sugar since we all love our holiday sweets!  Our bloggers have some tasty treats for you using real sugar.  We know that sugar isn't as healthy as other options, so be sure you are consuming it in moderation.  Sugar is my weakness.  I always have room for a sweet!


I was inspired by Cathy at My Side of 50 for this recipe.  She tells a darling story about her grandmother on this post.  Go and check it out.

My grandmother story is slightly different.  My great grandmother, Lula Belle Wilson, liked booze and often added it to recipes, most often her delicious eggnog.  When my momma was a little girl, Lula often told her to stay out of the eggnog.  My mom decided then that HER eggnog would never have booze in it so that everyone could enjoy it.  And as far as I know, it never has had any, except what we might pour in our individual glasses!

For my recipe, I used my bourbon ball recipe and exchanged the bourbon for Fireball.  It's a simple switch out.  If you aren't into including alcohol, I can't help you with an exchange, because I haven't tried anything else!
