Choose your favorite hot chocolate. Prepare as you normally would and top with your favorite ice-cream (big scoop please).

We dare you…invite your girlfriends over one night soon for for this delicious combo and a good old fashioned catch up.

We promise, good times are to be had! xxx

December is always so insanely busy!
With shopping, parties, and everything else we’re trying to get ahead and are giving our neighbors’ gifts the week of Thanksgiving in lieu of Christmas this year.

Cookies wrapped in parchment, boxed and tied in string, accompanied with a gratitude note will do the job nicely.

We think this would work great for c0-workers and friends too.
A nice little gesture of thanks and getting ahead on Christmas….holler!
