Boozy Cinnamon White Hot Chocolate - the perfect way to warm up on chilly days! Easy homemade white hot chocolate with Fireball Whiskey and marshmallows on top!

Heeeey guys, one last post before Christmas! I couldn’t leave you without something delicious and boozy.

Because, as I tell you every year, I’m not doing my Christmas Eve all night wrapping session without Elf on in the background and some kind of delicious beverage next to me.

Before we get to that though, I wanna say thank you for coming back, for all the emails, for checking on me if I don’t post for a few days, for stopping me in Target and saying hi, for everything this blog has given me. These last couple years have been a real rollercoaster for me and having this little space on the internet full of people who share the same interest as me has been one of the only constants in my life. I appreciate it all more than I can express.

This may be my last post of the year (other than my yearly favorite recipes – that’s still happening) so I hope you have a fabulous Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!

S'mores Frozen Hot Chocolate! You won't believe how delicious this is!

Happy 3rd day of #SmoresWeek!

This one may be my favorite.

Except really, they’re all my favorite.

I can’t choose. You can’t make me.

But I really, really, really like this one.

Have you ever had a frozen hot chocolate? They are uhhhh-mazing and don’t even start with the, “Isn’t that just a chocolate shake?”

NO.

I used to think so, too, and then I tried one. It’s a hot chocolate. But frozen. And it will change your life.

Peanut Butter White Hot Chocolate - white chocolate and peanut butter hot chocolate recipe!

Hey guys!

Guess what. It’s been almost chilly here in Texas this week! I went for a run yesterday morning (hard to believe, I know) and didn’t feel like I was running through a bowl of pea soup. It was amazing.

Also, it’s so easy to run in Texas compared to Colorado. Still moving back though. ASAP. And by ASAP I mean probably 15 years from now.

Anyway, I haven’t been drinking coffee at home recently for whatever reason but I’ve still been craving something warm and sweet and delicious every morning. So I’m on a hot chocolate kick and have tried every combination you can imagine with basically everything in my baking cabinet.

This one is my favorite and I’ve made it for, like, 5 mornings in a row!

Peanut Butter White Hot Chocolate - white chocolate and peanut butter hot chocolate recipe!

Have you tried the Jif Peanut Powder?

It’s the secret ingredient in this Peanut Butter White Hot Chocolate! It dissolves into the hot chocolate and creates the most perfect cup of hot chocolate you can imagine!

I’ve been into Jif Peanut Butter since I first found out about it. Powdered peanut butter is something I can get behind! It’s perfect for adding that peanut butter flavor to smoothies, oatmeal, pancakes, or you can even bake with it! Plus, it has 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter but still has 7 – 9 grams of protein per serving!

If you are interested in trying Jif Peanut Powder, Smucker’s has a $1 off coupon on Ibotta.com! And when you get your bag of Peanut Powder, make sure you try this Peanut Butter White Hot Chocolate!

It’s official hot chocolate weather in Colorado.

I’m excited.

I’d be more excited if it had waited until after I have to walk around the neighborhood after the sun goes down asking neighbors that I don’t really know for candy for my kids.

But I’ll take it.

Weather.com totally teased me last night with “Locations nearby are reporting snow” so you know I stared out the window for a good hour and a half before finally giving up. No snow for me.

Good news though, I’m totally prepared for the cold now thanks to the lovely people at Stephen’s Hot Cocoa. They sent me a package of 3 of their hot cocoa flavors: Cookies N’ Creme, Orange Creme, and Amaretto. I buy their Candycane Cocoa every winter because the cute little bear drinking the cocoa on the package is just too cute to resist so I was excited to try their other flavors.

I used the Cookies and Creme Cocoa to make this popcorn. The coating for the popcorn is the cocoa mix, butter, and melted marshmallows! It’s almost like a rice krispies treat but with popcorn! And then, of course, I mixed in more (unmelted) marshmallows and some chopped cookies. Because you can’t have Cookies and Cream Popcorn without cookies!

More good news! I’ve got cocoa for one of you! Make sure you enter below!

One winner will get three cans of Stephen’s Hot Cocoa in Cookies N’ Creme, Orange Creme, and Amaretto. Giveaway is open until November 4 at midnight Eastern time. I will email the winner after the giveaway ends so make sure your email is correct! US only, please.

You know the only thing better than peppermint white hot chocolate? Pink peppermint white hot chocolate!

This time of year my Starbucks drink of choice is the peppermint white mocha which is pretty much the best thing ever but when I’m not feeling coffee, I go for the peppermint white hot chocolate but their version has nothing on this pretty pink one!

Before Nicole and I started this Thirsty Thursday thing I had no idea hot chocolate was so easy to make from scratch but seriously, if you haven’t done it, you need to. I’m always so disappointed in the white hot chocolate mixes but this homemade version makes up for it.

Nicole made Peppermint Hot Chocolate Truffle Balls which would go perfectly with this hot chocolate!
