“I was going to sip on a diet soda, but a little voice convinced me I needed the extra calcium from a cup of hot chocolate.” -Cathy Guisewite
“I want to take all our best moments, put them in a jar, and take them out like cookies and savor each one of them forever.” –
One of my favorite ways to spend the evening during the holiday season is with a nice festive drink, yummy treat, and a great movie. I remember curling up on the couch, as a kid, with hot chocolate in my hand and watching a good Christmas movie with my family. I have included a printable list of “Must Watch Christmas Movies” in case you need some ideas.
I also wanted to include some of my favorite recipes for drinks and snacks.
