Christmas Wreath Bread with Peppermint Hot Chocolate

By December 24, 2013No Comments

Only one more day until Christmas, can you believe it? I hope you each have a wonderful Christmas Eve today. I know there are many things you can make in your kitchen on this last day before Christmas, but I wanted to share just one more traditional favorite my family loves. When we were young we used to dip our toast in hot chocolate. Although I still love that, I enjoy a little more grown up version of that childhood favorite, winter snack. My kids and I love to take our simple french bread recipe and twist the dough into a pretty Christmas wreath shape. We drizzle it with a cream cheese glaze and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar. The bread is soft and pulls apart into soft pieces, perfect for dipping in hot chocolate.  Now, this isn’t just any old hot chocolate. This is our homemade hot cocoa with peppermint whipping cream. Oh my! This peppermint cream on top is unbelieveably fabulous. I have to admit I ate several spoonfuls of just the whipping cream. Combine the warm, homemade bread dipped in a rich hot chocolate and a cool, peppermint topping–you can’t get any better! Wake up Christmas morning to this special treat, or serve it after the kids have been outside building a snowman. No matter when you serve this treat, your whole family will agree you are the best Mom on the block!! Merry Christmas Eve–love you all 😉
