Sometimes the concept of modern technology goes terribly wrong.
Case in point: programmable thermostats. While it might be nice to wake up to a warm house or lounge around in shorts in the middle of winter, a 70° house completely annihilates the purpose of enjoying a frothy mug of hot chocolate; drinking piping hot chocolate while being piping hot... not so much fun.
It's not that I'm suggesting everyone go around indoors with wool ski masks all fall and winter, I'm merely suggesting every once in a while we open up all the windows, go for a drive and then come back and brew up a pot of steaming pumpkin spiced hot chocolate.
The Sisters that Spook are revealing the best Hot Chocolate Recipe you'll enjoy until... Christmas! and a double dose of what to do with those fantastically spooky coasters you can't resist in the Halloween section.
Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate
Line your favorite mug with a few pumpkin marshmallow peeps
Throw in a few pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses (available at Target)
Toast a few pecans in butter and brown sugar, and blanket them over the top
Spray a generous dollop of whipping cream over the concoction
Pour your favorite recipe for Hot Chocolate over the goodies, increasing the water or milk by double
Stir to melt the pumpkin kisses
And Sip your way over to Pammy's blog for a great trick on using up those leftover holiday coasters.
