Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing. Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?! I’m kind of over the moon about it.

Either way it's wonderful! Needed: 4-5 cups apple juice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 3 ounces spiced rum (optional), cinnamon sticks and apple slices to garnish. In a small pot heat the apple juice, spices and rum (if using) over low/medium heat.

Stir often while the mixture is heating so the spices will blend into the juice (you don't want any spice clumps). Spiced Apple Cider, makes 2 servings.

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Recipe. Hot chocolate is probably one of my favorite autumn/winter beverages!

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Recipe

And although I am no stranger to store-bought hot chocolate mix for a quick and easy treat I wanted to create a hot chocolate recipe that was more like a decadent dessert drink. This Salted Caramel version really fits the bill. It will be quite rich and thick and although I just adore caramel paired with a little sea salt, if you don't like the sweet and salty combination then just leave the salt in this recipe out. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, makes 2 large servings. Needed: 16 ounces milk or cream (I used a combination of 8 ounces milk and 8 ounces cream), 4 ounces dark chocolate, 4 ounces chocolate caramel (such as Hershey's version), a pinch or two of sea salt. In a sauce pan or small pot heat half (8 ounces) of the milk and 4 ounces chopped dark chocolate and salt until melted. Serve with a little whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel and a sprinkle of sea salt. Have fun sipping something sweet. xo, emma + elsie. Hot Chocolate on a Stick {Gift Idea}
