It snowed Yesterday! I have been waiting for it to snow this year! It started around 10 am and was still coming down heavily at 2 in the afternoon! I was out taking pictures and enjoying the muffled quiet that comes with snow falling and just getting myself in the spirit of the season.
I have many orders to make and a show on December 10 and my open house on December 11, both of which should have many visitors browsing so I have lots things to do, but I had to take a break and enjoy the snow!
That much snow got me thinking about winter activities, which led to Hot Cocoa, so I decided the
Deal-of-the-Day for today is Hot Cocoa Mix
We make 4 different mixes generally, but this year I have an abundance of mint so I put together a Mint Hot Chocolate too! The special today is all five of these blends for only $14.95. That is a 15% savings over the regular price in person of $3.50 each.
And just to get you thinking about the outdoors and cocoa here is a chocolate shortbread recipe:
This goes well with hot cocoa!
1 cup flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbls. cocoa powder
1/2 cup softened butter
Cream the butter. Then add the entire package of Shortbread Mix and work in. Knead the resulting dough on an unfloured surface until nice and smooth. Firmly press the dough, working from the center out into an oiled pan. Prick the surface with a fork all over . Bake at 325 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
