What kind of girl promises you a cocoa recipe and then doesn't come through.
Sorry! Life really got in the way.
Orange Spice Cocoa
Sift 1 cup of confectioners sugar, 1/4 tsp of cardamon and 1/2 cup of cocoa powder together into a bowl.
Bring six cups of milk to a simmer over medium heat.
Whisk in cocoa mixture.
Fold 1/2 tsp of orange zest into 1 cup of whipped cream.
Divide hot cocoa into six mugs. Tp with generous dollops of whipped cream.
Note: I make my whipped cream in a blender. It's super fast and comes out perfect every time. All you need is heavy whipping cream, a small spoon full of confectioners sugar and flavoring - I prefer 1 tsp of vanilla. Mix on high speed until it stops moving. My blender usually makes a "clunk" sound. Don't mix anymore or you'll get butter.
It's especially yummy with these:
Brayden and I tried the whole 'flooding' royal icing thing. I think people fuss a little too easily - it's not near as scary as I've heard. This one is mine, minus the cinnamon nose that Brayden added
It was fun showing him the snowman cookie is a reindeer if you flip it upside down trick - blew his mind. I guess he thought I've baked "both" all these years. LOL.
