Sifted: Holiday Goodies, Homemade Hot Chocolate + More

By: Lauren Miyashiro

5 Hot Links We're Loving:

  1. Throw on some Christmas music and bake up a batch of The Faux Martha’s cranberry orange scones.
  2. A Cozy Kitchen shows you how to make fancy shmancy hot chocolate. It's easier than you think.
  3. Take a break from Christmas shopping and cookie dough to enjoy a bowl of Cookie and Kate’s curried cauliflower soup.
  4. We're putting Love and Olive Oil’s gingerbread caramels in the running for the best holiday mashup this season.
  5. Eggnog in cupcake form is awesome -- especially when spiked with rum. Sprinkle Bakes’ recipe features a rich and creamy white chocolate ganache.

Craving More?
