Reese's Hot Cocoa | Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

I've never really liked hot cocoa before; I've always been a coffee and tea kinda girl. But this year, my boyfriend gave me a Godiva hot cocoa set for Christmas and it gave my soon to be hot cocoa addiction a kick start. Since I've finished the cocoa powder mixes, I've been using chocolate bars to make my hot cocoa and it turned my world upside down. One thing that I've always known was that I do not like water for my hot cocoa, I need milk. & to complete that, real chocolate bars are now a necessity to my hot cocoas. 

So enough of the rambling, today I will be showing you a Reese's hot cocoa recipe that I've been making. If you watch my youtube channel, you will know that I've been having a Reese's addiction lately. So why not add that to my new addiction? Hot cocoa. 
 Ingredients:
- 6 small Reese's peanut butter cups (or any amount of Reese's chocolate depending on your taste, in my case, I used 6 small rectangle pieces of this XL Reese's bar.)
-A mug of your choice of milk
-Whipped Cream
-Marshmallows
-Sugar Sprinkles

The last 3 ingredients are optional of course.
 Step 1: Microwave your milk in the mug for 1 minute or put in on a low heat in a pot on a stove top for 1 minute .
Step 2: Start mixing in the Reese's pieces; heat the milk up for 1 more minute if the chocolate pieces are not completely dissolving in the milk.
Step 3: Add the optional toppings if desired. I added whipped cream, marshmallows, and sugar sprinkles.
Step 4: Drink up and enjoy!

Today's Little Adventure

 I've been having allergic reactions a few times for the past couple of years but then I experienced the worst allergic reaction last night. The connection I made to my allergic reactions was shrimp but the thing is, I would eat shrimp a lot of times and for the most part, I would be fine.
 Today, my friends and I decided to eat at this shrimp restaurant by the beaches. I was up for it, since I wanted to find out if shrimp was really the culprit. Plus, I can't give up on shrimp; It's one of my favorites!
We also stopped by this little cozy coffee shop. I had to grab a toffee coffee to end the day!
I will find out later tonight if I get any allergic reactions. Until then, I'll keep you all posted.

Love, Chris

My Small Haul: Home Goodies & Other Stuff

Even though stores are packed with people trying to get their Holiday shopping done, I still manage to have the patience to shop for myself while waiting in the long lines. Here is a small haul of a few things I purchased in the past few days.
A couple of trash cans for our bathrooms. These were my two favorites.
Candy Canes for our Christmas tree! My little Christmas tree is shown in the first photo above.
A floral silver cup to put our toothbrushes in and a paris soap holder for my neutrogena bar soap
My new Zebra slippers to keep my feet warm! Found these for $7! They were the last pair.

What have you all been buying lately? Done with your Christmas shopping yet? ;)
