These would be great to serve at a Easter celebration or to take as a hostess gift.

S’mores Hot Chocolate

It’s been a chilly week so I decided to whip up a fun drink to warm everyone up.  Here is a tasty S’mores Hot Chocolate.  This has all of the delicious flavors of a s’more in a warm toasty mug.

Make your own favorite hot chocolate for this or you can use mine (I like dark chocolate cocoa).

An Oscar Winning Drink – Gold Rimmed Bellini

I love a little glitz and glamour and this drink definitely has both!

Rim a glass with gold dust stars to make an award winning drink that would be perfect for an Oscar celebration.  Wouldn’t this go great with the gold dusted chocolate truffles that I featured yesterday.

You can find the recipe for this Bellini at Fashionably Bombed.
