Wow! It feels good to just sit down and breathe after that whirlwind that was the holiday season. Thank goodness the weather here was perfect for being outdoors…we all really benefited from it! I was sad to see the boys go back to school, really, but it is nice to also be able to think..and to spend some one on one time with the 3 year old.

As my list of people to buy for grows longer and longer by the day, I realize just how thankful I am for the sweet people in our lives who work hard to take care of us! Teachers and staff at school, teachers at church, the trumpet teacher, the mailman and woman, friends, family….there are so many people we want to give a gift to this Christmas! Luckily, Target has chocolate and coffee pairings for everyone!
Cool Down With Easy Chocolate Slushies!
Last year, I scored an awesome, new-in-box snow cone/ shaved ice maker at a garage sale. It is so simple because you can freeze a block of ice and within a few hours, make a super smooth snow cone! I did cave and buy some snow cone syrup but wow….that stuff has a TON of sugar and food dye, so we started using juice with our shaved ice.
Relive Your Childhood With An Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie Shake!

When I think back on my childhood, I remember good food. My mom is an amazing cook and thankfully, she taught me how to cook! One treat that she taught me how to make was a milkshake in the blender. No cooking required, but it does take skill to get it the perfect consistency. I think my brother and I perfected the cookie milkshake back in the day!
I love chocolate candy, there's no doubt, but I have a hard time eating commercial candy, because it's often times filled with junk. I created a delicious recipe with only all-natural, organic ingredients. I used coconut butter, which is also called coconut cream concentrate. Coconut butter is finely ground coconut meat with no additives and great for cooking! You can add nuts, coconut flakes, fruit, or just about anything to this recipe and get cute little silicon candy molds and you're set for all of the holidays!
Ingredients for 3-4 servings;
- 1/2 cup of coconut butter (coconut cream concentrate)
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/8 cup of coconut sugar or whole sugar
- Place all ingredients in a double boiler or in a glass measuring cup in a pot of boiling water.
- Melt ingredients, continually whisking until smooth.
- Remove from heat and pour into silicon candy molds.
- Place molds in fridge and let harden.
- Keep any uneaten candy in the fridge or in a cool place.
