Hot Chocolate & Cookie Pairings for the Holidays

I am back with the second post of my #12DaysOfChristmas series here on my blog! And today I have a fun YouTube video for you all!

Hot chocolate is one of my favourite treats to have during the cold months and cookies are my favourite treat to have during the holiday season. Naturally, I decided to combine my two favourite treats and come up with a tasty pairing!

You can watch my YouTube video to see how I made the hot chocolate and cookie recipes, or you can continue reading down below!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate & Peppermint Crinkle Cookie

During the winter months, peppermint is one of my favourite flavours! It’s so refreshing and soothing and tastes great in just about any dessert! I’ve added a dash of peppermint extract into my Peppermint Hot Chocolate recipe and in my Peppermint Crinkle Cookie recipe to make them taste delicious and festive for the holidays. This cookie recipe is also gluten-free which is amazing!

White Hot Chocolate & Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies

White Hot Chocolate has a very mellow flavour and I thought that Earl Grey tea would be a really great pairing to go along with this flavoured to make it taste like a London fog latte. My Earl Grey Shortbread cookies use my great grandma’s traditional shortbread recipe however I amp up the flavour by adding organic earl gray tea leaves to it. These are delicious any time of year prepared of white hot chocolate makes a delicious and festive holiday dessert.

Nutella Hot Chocolate & Italian Hazelnut and Pistachio Cookies

I’m living my best life when I’m drinking this Nutella Hot Chocolate!  Nutella is one of my all-time favorite flavors and I will put it on just about anything (or in anything), including this hot chocolate. This traditional Italian hazelnut spread works perfectly with my Italian Hazelnut and Pistachio Cookies that have a dash of orange zest in them! One bite of the cookie and a sip of the hot chocolate is all it takes to send you into total bliss.
