Wines To Pair With Your Holiday
A simple way to elevate your ghoulish gathering without breaking the bank and without adding tons of effort are utilizing toothpicks, a bag of marshmallows, and black frosting. Simply take two marshmallows and push them through to the center of a toothpick. Add a touch of black frosting and let it dry. Once dried, place it over a glass as an example next to your wine choices and load up the others in a bowl for guests to take. If you want to up your festive setting add some faux spider webbing or skeleton hands for an extra special touch.
