Caramel Coconut And Fudge Truffles

    This past week, my husband and sons have been munching on caramel coconut and fudge cookies every single day.  I promise that I did not indulge but I definitely wanted to, if I'm being honest.  They taste delicious and are hard to resist.  I really wanted to have an excuse to buy even more of this cookie variety regularly so I thought it would be a good idea to include them in a fun and delicious recipe.  I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!

Frozen Hot Cocoa Spoons

    My husband just went out to get breakfast and left the front door open when he came back in to get his car keys.  I can't even begin to describe to you guys how cold it has gotten in New York City.  I've never been a big fan of the cold weather but I do love certain things about this season.  Aside from being able to wear tights and boots, I also enjoy winter recipes and just about anything that will warm me up when I get in from the cold outdoors.     One of my favorite winter treats to enjoy are hot cocoa spoons.  They are perfect for dipping in hot chocolate or even in a hot cup of milk.  You can make them in white or milk chocolate and can even decorate them and wrap them to give away during the holidays.  Since I love Frozen so much, I thought this would be a great theme for my hot cocoa spoons this year.  Check it out!
