Normally, I don’t use those flavored coffee creamers anymore. I use either half & half, or heavy cream, sometimes on rotation. But, I was tired & wandering through a grocery store last night around 8pm (something you shouldn’t do without a sure plan of what you want to make, or you might spend more than you thought), I decided on flavored creamer. Since it was a bit late on Christmas Eve eve, the shelves were a little picked over.
I have a much more thorough blog on how I make Christmas candy I posted a couple years ago. I revised it today, so it’s published date is now today.
What I ended up with last night: 2 bags of round pretzel balls, a big jar of peanuts, & 1 bag each of dark chocolate, white chocolate & butterscotch chips (+ I already had 1 dark chocolate plus vanilla candy melt bars), some vanilla I needed, & a couple other random groceries. Well, $50 later, I stopped on my way home to get a burger at a local place. Apparently, I was shopping both tired and hungry?
Here is my lazy holiday mocha recipe. it does not guarantee to rival a coffee house, but it’ll do the trick if you want something a little bit more than a regular old coffee, and don’t want to spend $$ on Starbucks or a local coffee joint.
