Happy New Year! I hope everybody had a great holiday season. Mine was pretty good. How was yours?
One thing I really didn’t like was all of the snow. I am not a snow / cold weather kind of person. Cold weather + me = a bad combination. If only I could be in warmer weather year round.
Did some baking for the holidays (mostly because my mum wanted me to not because I wanted to) at the beginning of December. I made sugar cookies, shortbread, peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and brownies. Luckily she had packages for all of those so that made it easier for me to make them.
I also made a frozen holiday spice whip cream. Which was basically just 2 tsp cocoa powder; 1 tsp cinnamon; 1/2 tsp pure ground cloves; 1/2 tsp ground ginger; 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg; 1/4 cup sugar; and about 1 cup whipping cream. So first: mix the spices, cocoa powder, and sugar together. Then mix in the whipping cream. Next would be to whip the whipping cream into whip cream. Put into a freezer friendly seal-able container, and place into the freezer. Wait for it to freeze completely and Voila! Frozen holiday spice whip cream. Just as a FYI; I put the spiced whipping cream into the fridge over night to help bring out the flavors of the spices, I whipped it into the whip cream the following day. You definitely don’t need to if you don’t want to. For me the flavor was awesome, but you can adjust the amount of spices to however you want them.
