Unfortunately, with the 80 degree weather we experienced at Rosebowl yesterday, “dreaming” of a white Christmas is what I’ll probably be doing. If the weather doesn’t get cooler - I may just have to settle for watching It’s A Wonderful Life, without a fire, blanket or peppermint hot chocolate.
Have you ever had the William Sonoma Peppermint Hot Chocolate? Their peppermint hot chocolate makes a wonderful hostess gift to give when you attend a party, but if you want to really WOW people…make some homemade marshmallows to go with it.
Believe it or not, Ina Gartner’s marshmallow recipe in her Family Style cookbook is really easy to make. The key is to use lots of powdered sugar when molding the marshmallows into the dish!!! If possible use a Pyrex glass dish. I’m probably going to make some within the next week, so I’ll try to post photos.
For years, I thought it would be so fun to work at William Sonoma. So several years ago, I applied and got a job there during the holidays. I loved it and was thrilled to put on my official green apron. They asked me to stay on after Christmas, but there was one really SERIOUS problem. I spent way more than I made so I declined to stay on.
Here is another peppermint yummy - Every Christmas I make peppermint chocolate chip cookies….so gooood. Just follow any homemade cc cookie recipe (I use the Better Homes recipe.) and add crushed up peppermint candy canes to the recipe.
Holiday wreaths are such an individual and personal choice.
Here are few wreaths that caught my eye.
I LOVE THIS PAPER WREATH! Wish I knew how to make it. If you do, please share!
