Nutty Mocha Recipe (a.k.a. Grown-up Cocoa)

Nutty Mocha

There’s no reason the kids should have all the fun, or drink all the cocoa! I love trying liqueurs in my coffee, and in this case I used a hazelnut liqueur (DeKuyper’s was on hand) to mix with both hot cocoa, and a little brewed coffee leftover from breakfast. I also made the cocoa a little smoother with some white chocolate – I only had an ounce left in the box so next time I might try a stronger white chocolate cocoa!

20 Christmas Treats for Kids

Christmas Treats for Kids

At such a magical time of year, it fills my heart with joy seeing my kids’ excitement, like when our older children pick up one of our many Christmas books and read to their little sister, or even little things like changing the day on our Christmas countdown ornament.

Normally when I’m in the kitchen, I prefer to go it alone, practically scatting the kids away with a broom. But Christmastime is different. I want each of them to have memories of sharing time with me baking cookies, decorating treats and packaging up delicious gifts to share with friends.

Enjoy this season with your children, and spread some cheer with these 20 Christmas Treats for Kids!
