There are things for me that naturally come each December
It’s a Wonderful Life—Ahh James Stewart
Christmas Cookies- no surprise
Holiday music- Oh I love it, even makes my piles of laundry bearable
Wrapping presents at the last moment- Seriously happens every year and I enjoy the stress it brings me- ya I’m weird.
Hot cocoa and marshmallows- one cannot be served without the other…
Soft little pillows floating in a warm liquid of chocolate not only get my girls excited, hubby and I anxiously await this concotion every year. The marshmallow recipe is always the same, from Martha and ever so easy-I was afraid at first thinking I would completely make a mess of the recipe and ruin Christmas. Yes it’s that serious, they were a cinch to make and are a must every year. Others add choclate, swirl them or make them into perfectly precious shapes- not me I make them thick and square just big enough to cover the entire surface of steaming cocoa. With each sip your nose is slightly tickled by the softness of the slowly melting marhmellow— a cup of holiday cheer. The cocoa recipe changes every year why?? Not sure, but it is fun to mix different chocoates. This year I ran across a recipe that you simply add everything into a crockpot- set on low and walk away. Do you have holiday must haves? I hope you do, because this time of year is meant for slowing down with family and enjoying new memories being made. Enjoy!!
