Looks like Winter!

Wow! It finally looks like winter out there! I don’t know about you but I am loving this! Granted the roads are not ideal but it sure is beautiful out there. This is the perfect weather to cuddle up and watch a movie with some homemade hot coco or spicy apple cider.  Or if your like me coffee because we thought we could go all day without it :). Wasn’t my brightest moment today.

So far it looks like we have about 3 inches out there and it’s still coming down!

Whats it doing in your area? And how do you like to spend your snow day inside?

I am making home-made chicken noodle soup for dinner, added some shredded cabbage for a fun mix up, and will make some home-made hot chocolate later for the family. For the adults, I like to put a little splash of spiced rum in the hot chocolate. It’s a comfort food and drink night for sure! 

My famous “Home made Hot Chocolate” …..a little sweetness in moderation is always good. 🙂


1 cup Chocolate chips (your desired darkness)

1/2 cup Andes Mint chips (regular or peppermint crunch)

1 ounce Baker’s Unsweetened Baking Chocolate

1-3 cups Heavy whipping cream (can also use Half & Half or Milk)

whipped cream for topping

You can use a double boiler for this or a large pan filled 1/3 with water and a metal or glass bowl rested on top. Make sure that your water level doesn’t touch the bowl, and the bowl fits slightly snug on the pan. (this will prevent your hands getting steamed)

Fill your pan about 1/3 of the way full with water, place bowl on top, and bring water to a boil.

Add chocolate and let melt, stirring occasionally with a plastic spatula. When the chocolate is completely melted add your desired amount of Cream or milk. Some like their coco with a little more liquid than others, so judge it by eye and taste. 🙂 Whisk the cream and chocolate until it is heated through. Turn heat off, and ladle your chocolate goodness into mugs. Top with your favorite topping and enjoy!

For the adults, spice it up a notch with 1 tablespoon of spiced rum. 

Enjoy your snow day!! Or just enjoy a day of spoiling!
