Happy Weekend!

So sadly Joaquin has rained out our plans to go on a hike in New Hampshire this weekend, but we’re still looking forward to a weekend of cozying up on these chilly days. We’re thinking the three b’s — blankies, baking, and beers. Hope you all have an equally relaxing next couple of days!

Baileys Hot Chocolate

While it’s been a pretty mild winter (well, just when it comes to snow, really), that doesn’t mean we can’t still snuggle up with some hot cocoa in yoga pants under loads of blankies. And as we all know, we like to add a little bit of fun to our drinks for an even warmer evening sip. I mean come on, this sounds like a rockin’ Saturday night to us.

Hot Cocoa

Heat some milk over a stove top and whisk in a couple spoon-fulls of your favorite hot cocoa mix. Whisk well until the chunks have diminished and it’s all frothy and wonderful. Add in your Baileys Irish Coffee (or flavored nip) and stir again. Pour into your mugs, and top with some fluffy whipped cream. Garnish with any delicious add ons — cocoa powder, cinnamon, candy canes, orange zest — go nuts!

We actually made these guys while we were still in the full holiday spirit, so if it’s felling a little festive to you, that would be why!
