My favorite thing about cold weather is hot chocolate. A super indulgent splurge is Peppermint White Hot Chocolate. This is basically dessert in a mug that you sip and savor.
My friends at Vitamix are generously letting me send one of my readers an S-Series S55 Personal Blender! How awesome is that? This retails for $469.
Offers the ease and convenience of four pre-programmed settings in a personal blending size, taking the guesswork out of processing our most popular recipes.
4 Programmed Settings
The S55 offers the ease and convenience of four pre-programmed settings in a personal blending size, taking the guesswork out of processing our most popular recipes.
You’re In Control
The Variable Speed Control lets you fine-tune every texture—from smooth purées to chunky salsas—and everything in between.
The containers, blade base, lids, and seals are all top rack dishwasher-safe, making clean-up quick and easy.
Two Blending Containers
The S-Series offers two container sizes—a 20-ounce that becomes an instant travel cup with flip-top lid and a 40-ounce for small batches of soups, sauces, frozen desserts, and more.
I love my Vitamix. I had the choice between keeping the S55 or using it for a giveaway. Since I don’t really need two I decided I would like to bless one of my readers with it instead.
There is a little part of me that wishes I kept it because it is small enough for make one drink at a time and would fit better on my tiny counter tops. But, the bigger part of me is happy to share the Vitamix love.
The contest has an option where you can get additional entries by sharing it. Please share. It helps me get the word out about my little blog and helps you have a higher chance of winning this amazing kitchen appliance.
Ok, raw cocoa butter. This stuff is amazing! I was expecting it to be bitter like unsweetened chocolate but it’s not. It’s creamy and smooth and I think I could just eat it plain. I’m planning a few more recipes using it between now and Christmas so stay tuned.
You need a small amount for this recipe so a 1 lb bag will make 16 White Hot Chocolates. That comes to less than $1 per beverage. Much cheaper than a fancy coffee shop and much healthier.
