Sweets & Snacks For Diwali

C4AS Recap

Sharing is caring!

If you are looking for easy to make Sweets and Snacks for this Diwali, then you are at the right place.

We did a Mega BM with the theme Sweets & Snacks and this is a Recap of September Mega BM#104 we did. This is a collection of Sweets and Snacks from different Indian States.

I wasn’t planning on doing the Sep Mega BM in this space because of the mandatory 4th week. Somehow I ended up taking up the challenge and enjoyed cooking up 52 dishes. I have been doing April and September Mega BM on this space since the 2018. However, as I always enjoy challenge, I have managed to accomplish it, even it meant stretching beyond.

When I thought about the previous AtoZ Biryani Festival, I didn’t think I could do marathon cooking over weekend. However, I did manage that somehow. Again I was faced with the same situation and it was possible again.

So while I am not gloating, I feel if one needs to do something and is passionate about it, we can do it. Here’s the recap of the sweets and snacks I have shared in this space.

Before I go into the recap of this series, let’s take a look at what we have been doing the past years.
