Mid Winter Dreams...
You know that time of the year when you are used to snow and cold, you don't hate it yet, but you just have an inkling of spring and warm sun and delicious food on your mind? It's that moment when you need something really special that will help you through the coming cold...that's where I am today...ready for a treat that will both remind me of spring and knock out any winter blues that might be coming... so here's my plan:
I'm making a special drink to sip with friends by the fire while we play games...could there be anything more fun?? Of course, we have whoopie pies, too, nothing says yum like a drink and a treat!
For the drink:
- 2 ounces coconut cream (such as Coco López)
- 1 1/2 ounces Malibu rum
- 1 1/2 ounces coconut milk
- 1/2 ounce rich chocolate sauce, plus a little extra for glass decoration
You toss everything in the blender! I use a magic bullet and we drink right out of the cups.
Now we add one of my favorites, CHOCOLADA stacked up on a plate for your friends to enjoy! I ask you, how could winter be a problem with fun times like this?
Bring it on, winter, I've got you covered!
