Creamy Peppermint Hot Chocolate

I know it’s only early November but I’m already in the holiday spirit.   The Halloween directions are still up but they will soon be replaced with snowmen and penguins.  The aisles of the stores are slowly starting to fill up with colorful holiday lights and ornaments.  Soon we’ll be smelling fresh pine (after we begrudgingly carry the tree home), the cats stockings will be hung and I will start to hum Christmas songs while baking cookies.   I love this time of the year, don’t you?

What’s another reason why I love this time of the year?  Seasonal products are out and recipes  are ready to be made.   One of my favorites is here folks.  Let’s just take a minute and look at this beauty.

Sigh.  Sigh.  Sigh.

Coffee-mate’s Peppermint Mocha Creamer is here and I yell in happiness!  When I saw it in the grocery store I screamed in excitement and told Matthew quickly, and then I continued talking to him crazily to only turn around and realize I was talking to a much older gentleman who was confused. I apologized quickly, found Matthew and glared at him, and then continued to discuss this Peppermint Mocha and all the ways I planned on using it.

This season Coffee-mate has 3 seasonal flavors and I say we buy them all and have one heck of a party!  The seasonal flavors are only available through December so get them and stock up! 
Seasonal flavors include:

  • Dark Chocolate Fudge — Rich, dark and indulgent like only chocolate fudge can be. Enjoy a cup of coffee that’s every chocolate lover’s dream come true.
  • Peppermint Mocha — Enjoy one of the season’s most popular flavors! Let the comfort of crisp peppermint and chocolatey mocha warm you up this holiday season.
  • Eggnog Latte — What would the holidays be without the flavor of Eggnog? Invite over some guests and prepare a holiday flavored latte for everyone on your list.

Coffee-mate’s smooth, creamy taste has been perfected to not only complement coffee, but to bring out the best in it.  And it doesn’t stop at coffee,  let your mind wonder!  We’re talking bundt cakes, hot chocolate (hello there), lattes and so much more!   

What’s one of my favorite Winter time drinks? Hot chocolate of course! I can drink hot chocolate all day long to be honest, but that would leave me napping all day, so I like to save it for when we come in after a cold day or for dessert.    As soon as I brought home the Peppermint Mocha I gathered the supplies and hot chocolate was made!  We clinked glasses, sipped our hot chocolates and stared at each other nodding.  You know the nod, it’s one of those “Oh yeah, this is good.  Oh yeah, let’s just cherish this moment.”. 

Let’s all say a sweet hello to Creamy Peppermint Hot Chocolate.  Hello beautiful.

I worked hard to get those candy canes by the way. I was the official first person to buy them at my  local grocery.  I saw the box sitting in the aisle unopened and I tore it open like a mad woman to get the first pack of candy canes out!  Then I raised them in the air and told Matthew to cheer with me but he wouldn’t.

SoBe® Lifewater® In The Garden

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

We had a big garden workday this past weekend.  I took down all the Sugar Snap Peas, and then we went a step further and removed the 10 feet tall fences, strings that supported the peas and all fences and poles.  After that, we built a greenhouse that will be protecting our 8 feet long box (how to post coming soon!).  Under it we’ll be growing kale and lettuce throughout the Winter (who doesn’t love fresh veggies in the January?).   Ususally during a afternoon full of hard garden exercise I start to get grouchy. I’m thirsty.  I’m hot, or I’m cold.  I complain that my arms are sore. I complain that I do not use how to use a adustable wrench (it’s so complicated!).    But what makes me happy is a refreshing drink!  After one sip of a SoBe® Lifewater®  I start to smile again, but I still think that a adjustable wrench is tricky business.

SoBe® Lifewater® is having a  buy one get one free promotion at the Dollar General.  That means you can enjoy a Lifewater®  and share with a friend, or you could just keep them both to yourself. I won’t tell anyone.  I think you deserve it!

So I have a important question for you?  What’s your favorite flavor? 
SoBe life water

My favorite? That’s hard to choose from!   There’s Fuji Apple Pear (yes!), Pomegranate Cherry (one I would share with my dad) and Black and Blue Berry.  And I can’t forget Blackberry Grape.  I love blackberries so  much!

So get sharing! Which one are you going to try first with the Buy One Get One Free Promotion? Let me know in the comments!
