Welcome to day 2! We’re going to be sharing our favourite holiday treats we love, with some recipes!
I love drinking hot chocolate, and it tastes even better if you put a candy cane in it because of the peppermint.
Another thing I love is eating shortbread cookies dipped in milk! I have this big tin of different shortbread cookies which taste amazing with milk. Dipping it in milk also helps me eat it better because they’re too hard on my braces hehe.
One last thing are gingerbread men. Especially if you decorate it with a ton of frosting because I always eat that part off first lolz.

Hey guys! I’m here for day 2!

So mugs have suddenly become my aesthetic, and words cannot describe how amazing Christmas/winter mugs are for me, and because it’s winter, it’s my chance to use all these cute mugs. Of course, hot chocolate is the #1 drink for Christmas, and as much as I love most hot chocolate packages, here’s a recipe from Bobby Flay that tastes even better ❤
(it even includes toasted marshmallows to add into your drink, which makes it 10x better)
Of course, the other part to Christmas treats is definitely the cookies. Cookies are honestly quite simple to make, as long as you have the time. To make it Christmas themed, simply make some icing and sprinkle with red and green sprinkles. Or for an even more minimalist cookie, sift powdered/icing/confectioner’s sugar (same thing, different names) on top to make it look like snow.
For the cookies themselves, any plain cookie would work, but I would recommend going with vanilla so you can really decorate it with anything.
For those of you who enjoy mint, add some mint extract in addition to vanilla extract when making your cookies. It makes the cookie just that much better. You can even add mint extract to your icing if you’d like!
Hello again, friends
I’m not much of a baker so here’s a list of food I like to eat especially during Christmas time 🙂
This is the one brand of pre-made dough cookies that I swear by and always look forward to eating:
Pillsbury chocolate chip cookies!!
And I know I’m not alone on this opinion because if I ever offer one to a friend, they always ask me for the recipe or brand, trust me these are soooo good
Dip them in milk and you have a recipe for happiness
I have never tried eggnog until like 2 weeks ago, and to my surprise, it was actually really good!! It tastes exactly like Purdy’s Chocolate ‘s bubble gum ice cream, which is my favourite.
I got mine from safeway:
I find it a little sweet, so I like to water it down a bit with some milk
Although I’ve never tried any other eggnog, this brand’s is very rich and smooth, which I heard is a good quality in good eggnog
Also when I got it, I heard someone behind me say “Oh my favourite eggnog is here!” so I’m guessing it’s pretty well-liked 🙂
An essential during the winter time, like Fairycari and Briar have said.
I usually use the powder hot chocolates from trader joe’s-
It’s really good because it’s not too sweet, and of course, it’s a good price and also organic.
I know adding milk makes it richer and stuff, but I strangely like hot water with the powder
I think it’s something to do with having drank hot water hot chocolate in my childhood because the taste gives me a bit of nostalgia
Also, I’m not a big fan of sweet things (ironically I like eggnog though)
