May you wake to the possibility of a miracle in your midst.
May the twinkle of lights reflect the sparkle of joy in your world on this Christmas morning.
May the unfolding of this day bring a sense of peace to your soul.
May you unwrap the gift of hope anew.
(…and may there be a roaring fire and a cozy beverage as you savor the day)
Merry Christmas from Gwen & Sher!
Treat yourself today to a holiday chai latte, homemade hot chocolate or peppermint mocha!
Holiday Chai Latte
Steep 2 bags of chai tea (I like the Stash brand holiday chai) in 4oz of hot water for 2-3min.
Heat 8oz of milk (if you have a frother you could use it here!).
Discard tea bags and add milk to the tea.
Sweetened with 2T (or more) honey.
(Grandma Mim’s) Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
- 5 ⅓ c. powdered milk
- 2 c. instant chocolate (or cocoa powder)
- ¾ c. powdered coffee creamer
- ½ c. powdered sugar
Use 3 T per 1 c. hot water.
Stir and serve with a candy cane for a peppermint twist!
(Homemade) Peppermint Mocha
Brew 8 oz of strong coffee (or some shots of espresso if you have a fancy coffee machine)
Heat 2 oz of milk and mix with brewed coffee.
Add 2 T. homemade hot chocolate mix (or a shot of chocolate syrup if you have that on hand)
Add peppermint simple syrup* to desired sweetness
*Simple syrup is made by heating equal parts sugar and water until sugar is dissolved. You can flavor this by melting in a candy cane. It will keep in the fridge for a few weeks.
