Peppermint Hot Chocolate Float

Hello Friendly Friend and welcome to my recipe for a Peppermint Hot Chocolate Float. This is an easy recipe of Peppermint hot chocolate topped with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. So so good!

On Sunday evening, after having spent a lovely few days with my brother and his family who are visiting from Canada and with my parents who have snow-birded in, the hubs and I took the kids for a walk to see all of our neighbors’ homes glittering with lights. M loves little lights and it was so fun to watch her get excited with each house we passed. J, well, he just loves to run. So he ran ahead to the next house and then back to tell us what we would soon see (and what we could already see but pretended to not be able to see).

    I think this was a post that we can all understand and relate to. It is best for you and your family, especially your children, that you keep on as normally as possible and give your kids the kind of Christmas they are looking forward too…with extra hugs for everyone.

      Thanks for the supportive words, Paula. It’s good to know that I’m not alone in how I’m feeling about this sad tragedy.

    Hiccups of sadness. That’s such an apt way to describe how I feel. It’s the same. One minute I’ll be laughing with the kids and the next fight back tears. Yummy recipe.

    Christine, I think we are in sync or something. I just published a post on candy cane hot chocolate this morning and was planning on sharing it tonight during the hangout. Also, I felt so strange sharing a cute holiday recipe with recent events going on. I had so much to say yet no words. Talk to you later tonight. :)

      I know what you mean. It’s also hard to figure out what’s appropriate on a food blog. I mean, I get a touch political or personal sometimes but mostly people come here for the food and light conversation. Does that mean that we should ignore tragedies or big world/political events and stay focused on the food? Or do we stray. And if we stray, how often do we do it and how much? You know what? THAT would be a great topic for BlogHer Food. Lol. Loved talking with you on Tuesday night. Happy Holidays!
