Homemade Amaretto Hot Cocoa Recipe




Well here we are with another season upon us and a beautiful year ahead for making some precious family memories. Always a favorite time of the year as it seems magical when there are little ones around. I seem to feel more excitement to watch that twinkle in their eye of all the newness and surprises that awaits. Some of us need a little kick to keep us warm and cozy through all the prep work involved with the hussle of the Holidays, here is a little cup of cheer for the adults who are in the spirit.
 Hoping you all have a wonderful season making some festive memories with your loved ones.


I guess I should have waited for it to cool off before adding the whipped cream and marshmallows (smile) I think you can see the melted ones. Also the striped candy stick is almond flavored!
