Yesterday I hosted a small birthday dinner party for the doc.
We had lasagna and salad for the main course. This is the dessert table. I decided not to bake this year. We have a lot going on and time is short. I did manage to bake the doc's favorite pound cake. But guess what was most eaten?
Yep, these little store bought cookies. Guests were dropping by and grabbing them right and left, even though they claimed to be "too full for dessert."
It's the shuga I tell ya.
Before the party ever started, my little guys ate the top of the donut tree and then some.
No party complete without a hot cocoa bar. Whipped cream and crushed peppermint were also added.
Have you tried the crock pot recipe? It's to die for.
6 cups milk
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Cook for 2 hours. Serves 6-8
(Thanks to the blogger who shared this- sorry I didn't make a note of origination. Let me know if you read this blog.)
I love dipping biscotti into hot cocoa. My thrifty find is this jar from The Christmas Tree Shop- $6. Lovin' the little chalkboard label.
I am off to wrap gifts. So happy to have my doc home. Maybe the wrapping will go faster while we chat.
