It’s been a been a while since our last post, with the holiday excitement, winter colds and a lack of creative inspiration on my part….our blog has become…..blogless.
We finally have most of our WEDDING photos in from Tulle & Grace and plan to post them and Honeymoon updates soon! Stay tuned for posts from all the Holiday excitement too!
We’ve had lots of requests from our previous post just what our “Adult Hot Chocolate” was. Last Christmas we became obsessed with William-Sonoma’s Peppermint Bark Hot Chocolate. While we were decorating our artificial tree Adam created a rather tasty concoction.
We just add a little of this and that…and typically have a heavy hand.
We used our Oval Le Creuset Pot to mix up our Hot Chocolate.
About 4 Cups of Milk
1/2 package of William-Sonoma Peppermint Bark Hot Chocolate Mix (to taste)
A few shots of Godiva Liqueur
A heavy pour of your favorite Vodka (to taste)
Heat the milk on medium-high until bubbles form on the outside edges. Slowly whisk in the Peppermint Bark, once dissolved, remove from heat. Add alcohol- to you liking. Pour in a cute Christmas mug and top with Whip Cream.
Whip Cream Topping:
1/2 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar (to taste)
Beat the heavy cream until it begins to firm. Add in Vanilla and Powered Sugar. Beat until firm peaks begin to form. Add additional Powered Sugar to taste.
Enjoy your Newly or Nearly Newlywed moments. Remember we’re newlyweds, not experts.
