I am so excited for this post today!
Remember a few weeks ago how we talked about creating a boo kit full of candy and other fun stuff? This version is even more fun!
It’s called… Hallo-WINE!
So instead of the basket of candy, you make a basket of wine and other goodies. Drop if off with one of your friends and tell them to pay it forward by making a Hallo-WINE basket for someone else.
I live in this weird world where everyone I know is currently missing a husband (gone for training) and I know that every single one of them would LOVE a basket like this to show up at their house on Halloween night.
It’s got everything you need for a perfect night in. All alone or add a few more wine glasses to the basket for a fun girls night!
The basket starts with a bottle of Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay and then I added a yummy candle, a cute throw blanket, the wine glass, and a bottle of fall-colored nailpolish.
And finally, I added in all the ingredients for this Maple Pecan Baked Brie! The round of brie, some pecans, sliced baguette, graham crackers, and sliced apples (tossed with lemon juice to make sure they don’t brown).
So when I drop this basket off with a friend, all she has to add is maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon and I’m just assuming she’ll have it on hand.
I printed out the recipe and popped it in the bottom of the basket so she’ll be able to have a delicious and easy dinner to go with her wine!
This baked brie is so delicious! I’ve made this recipe every New Years Eve for as long as I can remember and every time, it’s gone within minutes.
If you’re interested in the Robert Mondavi Private Selection wines, keep an eye out for the special “You’ve Been Hallo-wined” neck hanger tags! They also have instant redeemable coupons and mail in rebates through November 30, 2015.
