I had plans for many more accomplishments today, but the snow and the huge load of books, cds and dvds awaiting us at the library derailed that. We each dove into our favorite corner with our new books and ignored the heavy snowflakes falling outside. Until, Mama had to go shovel. I left the little ones with the instructions that they could watch the end of one television show and they must turn off the television in the living room. I need to learn to not speak so literally. When I came back in they had indeed turned off the television in the living room and were cuddled up in my bed watching my television. Outsmarted yet again, there was nothing I could do but join them in bed. With the extra down time I got to dive into Chocolat.
Chocolate Mint Truffle Creamer
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cup milk
3 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Teaspoon peppermint extract
Mix all ingredients in a glass container. Shake each time before use to avoid settling. Will keep in the refrigerator for two weeks.
