Well, how is your Holiday season going?  Mine is busy as can be.  On top of doing some super-secret Christmas projects, I'm starting a new job soon and I've had much to wind up and my current one.  I'm having a blast making a mess of my house while decorating for all winter has to offer, and I'm doing all I can to keep warm on these chilly nights.

I haven't had much time to write, but in all of my life's hectic moments I've had plenty of time to come up with some fantastic ideas for projects and recipes.  Expect great things soon.

I found these boots at a costume shop last Halloween season.  It wasn't your typical Halloween Express kind of shop, but instead a place where a lot of theatre companies rented costumes for shows.  They were always my #1 choice for costume shopping, and they were the only place in town that sold Ben Nye makeup.  I love love loved this place, but sadly they closed for good this year.

This, combined with some other recent events, has made me realize the importance of patronizing local establishments.  So this year, shop Small Business Saturday!  You never know, it could make all the difference in the world.

SALTED CARAMEL HOT CHOCOLATE

Salted caramel hot chocolate // Fear in Wonderland

Hi lovelies!

The other day, my super sweet boyfriend ran out and got me breakfast from Dunkin' Donuts, and I was so excited when he brought me home a salted caramel hot chocolate. But then I tasted it and was severely disappointed. I hope they were just having a bad hot chocolate day, because it was seriously bad. I consider myself pretty good at piecing together recipes, so I decided to make my own. Here's the recipe that makes 2-3 servings:

Ingredients:
  •  2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup Nestle (canned) Dulce de Leche
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp marshmallow cream
  • 1 Tbsp plain yogurt
  • whipped cream

Heat the milk on medium low in a medium sized saucepan.  Once it's at a nice warm temperature, add the white chocolate chips and the Dulce de Leche because they need the most time to melt.  Stir!  If you're not pouring something in the pot, you should be stirring.  Add the salt, the cocoa powder, the marshmallow cream, and the yogurt.  You're still stirring, right?  When you get tired of stirring, use a mesh strainer to get out any shrapnel that won't melt/blend.  Top it off with whipped cream!
