A Cottage Christmas Cocoa Bar🧚‍♀️

 

 

🧚‍♀️“Christmas is too sparkly…said no one ever”🧚‍♀️

🎄 Hello sweet friends🎄

 

I hope you’re doing well.🧚‍♀️

 

 

 

 

Recently as I was driving through the countryside I pondered as to why I LOVE the 🎅🏻“Ho!Ho!Ho!” part of the holiday season.🤶🏻

(any chance one of these might be Rudolph?)🧚‍♀️

 

 

You know that childlike joy that longs to be expressed.🧚‍♀️

 

 

🧚‍♀️twinkling lights…reindeer flying through the sky with Santa’s gifts…

Ok….I must admit🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️

 

 

🧚‍♀️I do believe…🧚‍♂️

I have social butterfly tendencies 😉 Spirit of Christmas

 

 

One month a year just doesn’t seem long enough…🧚‍♂️

 

 

🧚‍♀️to sprinkle a little joy & light in the world.🧚‍♂️

 

 

fairy dust everywhere 🧚‍♂️

 

 

 

 

🧚‍♀️This past week Joe and I finished putting up the Christmas lights🧚‍♂️

 

 

🧚‍♀️attended a Christmas Play,

and…🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️

 

 

I finally finished my Cocoa Bar🧚‍♀️

 

 

🧚‍♀️ Have you ever made one?

 

 

They are easy to create.🧚‍♂️

🎄(make sure to click on the vlog below to see how I made mine!)🎄

(I also included the one I created when I lived in California.🤗)

 

 

🧚‍♀️ What fun things have you been up to?🧚‍♀️

 

 

Christmas White Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Rods

1 (10 oz. ) bag pretzel rods

1 (24 oz) package white chocolate bark coating or 1 (1 lb.) bag white candy melts (you’ll only use about 10 or 12 oz)

1-2 T. shortening

Assorted sprinkles🧚‍♂️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♀️

Directions:

In a tall skinny container melt bark coating or candy melts and shortening together in the microwave per package directions (typically in 30 second intervals, stirring in between)

 

 

Dip a pretzel rod in the candy coating, letting excess coating drip off back into the container. 🧚‍♂️Sprinkle immediately with desired sprinkles.🧚‍♂️

 

 

Place on waxed paper and let stand for white chocolate coating to set up. Store in a sealed container at room temperature. You can save any leftover white chocolate coating into a plastic storage container and save it for another use later. I didn’t have any. 🧚‍♀️

 

 

All you will need to do is heat it back up in the microwave, omitting the shortening (since it’s already in there).
