Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Welcome back, everyone. Did you have a good weekend? We attended number 1 out of 4 graduations this past weekend. Celebrating my brother-in-law’s achievement of becoming a graduate student and moving on to the next chapter in his life.

During the ride to Kansas and even on our way back, I was certainly dreaming of the frozen drink I’d made just a couple of hours before. Friday’s recipe inspired me so much that I couldn’t let the caramel-chocolate-pretzel combo go. I was having too much fun playing around with some of my favorite flavors when it comes to all things sweet.

And to be honest, a bar of blondies tastes that much better when accompanied by a frozen hot chocolate drink. We’re talking milkshake, slushy and frosty all in one. That’s right. This frozen hot chocolate is a mixture of all three. Which basically means it can’t be anything but amazingly delicious. [Read more…]

Hey Everyone!

How did you spend your Christmas? I sure hope everyone of you had a wonderful time. I think it’s safe to say that our time off can be best described with one word: FAMILY. Not only did we devour some delicious food and shared plenty of gifts, but countless hours were spent around the dining room table playing Settlers of Catan. Christmas was everything we hoped it would be and so much more.

Now onto welcoming a new year and dealing with all things winter.

Believe it or not, but this year we didn’t have a white Christmas. Our Winter Wonderland happened exactly 2 days later and the temps started to drop lower than they had so far. And it has only just begun…

My favorite activities already involve taking a long hot shower, sipping tea and snuggling my hubby. Not too shabby if you ask me ;).

Plus, I’ve discovered a new hot drink I can’t seem to get enough of – Spiced Orange Hot Chocolate. Mmmmm! [Read more…]

Happy Friday, friends! Now that we’ve reached double digits in the month of December, I am feeling the Christmas shopping pressure. The hubby and I have yet to purchase a few gifts together and yes, I still have to make up my mind what to get him as well. I have a few ideas, but life holds some sweet distractions for me. Who wants to step outside and join the hustle and bustle when one could curl up inside with tea and a Hot Cocoa Donut Muffin in hand while watching Elf?! That’s the constant dilemma I find myself in.

It’s a tough job being a food blogger, but someone’s got to do it. Also, someone has got to eat them… so I am blaming my Christmas shopping procrastination on these Donut Muffins. I think they can take it. Nothing could possibly take away from their amazingness.

You need to taste for yourself what is going on here. [Read more…]

Sipping Hot Chocolate

Sipping Hot Chocolate by Deliciously Yum!

Brrrr. That’s the only sound I’ve been making for the past couple of days. We can’t quite remember the last time the temperatures reached a two-digit number. It’s been bitter cold not just here but throughout the entire country and all I can think of are warm and cuddly things. What embodies that more than a cup of steaming cocoa? Making hot chocolate from scratch couldn’t be easier. One sip of this delectable beverage and you’ll bid adieu to powdered packages for good. Let’s indulge! [Read more…]
