Snow Flake Cocoa Recipe

Snow Flake Cocoa Recipe



2 cups whipping cream
6 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips
Whipped cream
Candy canes, crushed candy canes or finely crushed candy cane bark
(Candy could be replaced by coloured sprinkles if you are not a mint fan, although candy canes come in many different flavours and colours now)


Stir together the whipping cream, milk, vanilla, and white chocolate chips in a slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot and chocolate chips are melted. Stir again before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and candy canes, as desired.  It says it yields 10 servings, but I bet that depends on how generous a cup you like to give out ;)

Cookie*Love - angel wings for your coffee

I just fell mildly in love.  It happens all the time. I see something cool, wish to have it, then see something else shiny... but bask in this moment of 'Look at this cool thing' with me.

Links of note

Looking for some interesting ideas for the holidays that are impending upon us?  I spend a lot of time eying up other sites for my food pron fix...  and here are a few of the sites I have found that have me craving time to make them... and also crave a reversal in food roles where junk food helps you loose weight... but now I am just wishing.

The Jelly Shot Test Kitchen has some amazing recipes for more 'classy' alcoholic jigglers.  Ever thought of having a tray of beautiful jelly cosmos instead of wine glasses to serve to people?  Maybe you should. 

Over at Annie's Eats they have a good tutorial to show you how to decorate with royal icing if you are planning on making the infamous sugar cookies this Christmas.

More resources and amazing stuff can be found at University of Cookie too, on the cookie topic, while I am still on it.

Search & Win

Let us not forget to make life easier on our selves by getting free gift cards to Starbucks, like I do (Over 5 free $10 cards, I lost count :)  or Amazon cards to buy some of the presents.  You could gift the cards themselves, there are lots to pick from, or get some of the swag directly from them if you are in the states.  Believe me, it isn't hard to look up my food obsessions in Swagbucks instead of other search engines, and when I feel like 'googling' I just look it up in swagbucks ;)

Anyways, there is tonnes more I could write, but I need sleep more right now, so for the moment, happy holidays!

Kraft Dinner of the Week: Festive confetti KD

Festive Confetti KD

1 box of Kraft Dinner or like wise mac and cheese box, preferably white cheddar flavour

1/2 cup of drained pimentos, or substitute chopped roasted red peppers if you wish

1/2 cup of chopped spinach (or a few 'cubes' if you have the frozen pre-cubed variety)

1-2 tablespoons of plain cream cheese


Prepare KD as package indicates, adding spinach during the last few minutes of cooking.  Return to pot and to the burner it was just cooked on, and add the cream cheese, stirring until blended.  Add in the pimentos and enjoy.  The added creaminess from the cream cheese should trump the spinach for most finicky kids.  Just tell them that the big guy in the red suit eats this for lunch too... cookies can't possibly be his only solid food...
