On Comet, On Cupid, On Donner and...

...Chocolate Blitzen!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We were busy bees with a couple of Christmas gatherings to attend.  For our annual family Christmas Party on Saturday I made these delicious shooters for everyone to enjoy...

I saw this on pinterest a while ago and saved it in my files.  They were a big hit and they were oh so delicious!

Can you believe I never took a picture of the actual ones I made??  I should have because I made a few changes:  I poured the drinks into shot glasses (it's a pretty rich drink so a full glass might be a bit much) and instead of chocolate sprinkles around the edge, I put a Christmas mix of red, white and green (that was Darryl's suggestion which I like much more than the original)

The above link has the recipe in case you want to try some, but for a quick overview, the ingredients include chocolate ice cream (doesn't that alone have you sold??), vodka, Bailey's and creme do cacao.

Posts this week may be a little sporadic and less house-related.  Things are changing and picking up at work and this week is a bit crazy!

Do you have any favourite holiday drinks?  Have you pinned any that you are just dying to try?  Have your Christmas partiesbegun as well?


  1. This sounds incredible and I haven't even read the recipe hahaha! YUM!

  2. That looks holiday standby is much more simple - Grand Marnier & cranberry juice! Tastes & looks festive, and super simple!

    A non-alcoholic drink/dessert I'll be trying this season is a Candy Cane Latte - a double shot of espresso over a bit of candy cane crackle ice cream, & maybe some crushed candy canes to sprinkle on top of the whipped cream...definitely more of a dessert now that I've written out my plans!

  3. Oh my gosh Lisa, the dessert sounds so good! I have a few other things I was to try out but not sure if I'll get to them or not...
