I sure hope you aren’t over the sweets, because I have your new favorite breakfast right here.

Christmas may have come and gone, but we are still in holiday mode around here. Right down to our hot chocolate oatmeal.

We’re in NY visiting family, and while I’m  bummed we didn’t get a white Christmas (we’ll have to try again next  year), we are having a blast.  Turns out winter can still be fun even when you aren’t up to your neck in snow drifts. Although Stella may not agree with me. Se was SO hoping to go sledding and wear her new snow boots.

Snow or no snow, winter just wouldn’t be the same without the hot chocolate, and now you have a reason to enjoy hot chocolate for breakfast.
