'Tis the season...
We're decking the halls!
Tree is up, stockings are hung, and shopping has begun. (One gift down, dozens to go!)
Dreaming of a white Christmas? I am!
Let it snow!
While waiting on mother nature and thinking of some more cheesy Christmas cliches, some white chocolate hot cocoa might hit the spot. When I found this recipe, I couldn't resist. (Thank you Food Network!)
Such a festive treat, topped with marshmallows or whipped cream and garnished with a candy cane stirrer.
We also tried rimming the mug with melted chocolate and dipping it in crushed peppermint. (I'm a margarita drinker, can you tell??) The kids loved this one, a bite of candy with every sip. It was the perfect end to a long, cold day.
How about some holiday cheer? White Christmas Cocoa with a little (or a lot) of peppermint liquor, cheers! Or get creative, I added my favorite...
Mmmmmm, talk about warm and cozy!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! (sorry, couldn't resist)
