SuperValu NI got in touch to ask me to get involved in their #BringHomeChristmas initiative, it just felt like a lovely, family focussed thing to blog about. Plus, I love supporting local companies. Oh and they sent me some wine too....that helped!
The campaign is all about local ingredients and about enjoying them at home, with family and friends. So I was asked to spend an afternoon making Mulled Wine Shortbread Biscuits with my children, using local ingredients sourced from my local SuperValu.
The recipe is really simple and you can find it on this link - it's essentially a basic shortbread recipe with a sachet of mulled wine spices thrown in for the flavour. I had never thought of doing that with those sachets - assuming they had to be dissolved in liquid but of course they're just edible spices that add a fab flavour to these biscuits. I should say here that I halved the recipe - and still had about 30 biscuits.
One last thing I wanted to mention before I go. Remember the wine I told you I was sent? Well it was none other than Graham Norton's wine...
Hope you enjoyed this less fashion-ey post. Thanks to SuperValu for asking me to get involved!
BUT now for the best bit - I have £200 in SuperValu vouchers to give away to one local reader....pop over to my Facebook page to find out how to win them!
