  2. Spiced Fruit Recipe

I love unique items, especially around the holidays. I feel like we all get in ruts where we bring the same dishes that we’re used to, assuming that people will like the “usual.” Let’s switch it up this year and make something special. This holiday fruit is perfect, warm, cozy, and slightly spiced. As a bonus, this can be made in the slow cooker. Throw it together and forget about it! It’s perfect for breakfasts, brunches, and desserts!

This seriously is so easy and so delicious! Everyone always wants the recipe and now you have it!
