It is time for Christmas recipe Number 2! This year Starbucks has brought a new Red Cup flavor: Honey & Almond Hot Chocolate. It is an indulgent drink that will definitely satisfy your chocolate craving and is also a bit more festive for the holiday season. If you would rather eat this chocolate treat than sip it, I have an easy recipe for you! ;)
Maybe you have already guessed from my previous post what this year’s Christmas recipes could be? Starbucks brought back four Christmas beverages this season and I wanted to create a cake recipe for each Red Cup flavor. To make it more fun and festive, I created a cake ball recipe so you can eat and enjoy your favorite Starbucks flavor with your coffee at home.
Are you already feeling festive? I’m enjoying the pre-Christmas season in New York right now. Yesterday was the lightning event of the huge Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. I didn’t see it live (I don’t do well with crowds of people) but for me it is the symbol that Christmas is just around the corner. I can’t wait to start decorating when I get home!
This is my go-to rum ball recipe, enriched with gingerbread spice for the holiday season. The gingerbread rum balls have a creamy, cocoa taste, while the apricot jam gives it a tartish flavor and the dark rum flavor makes it a favorite among adults.
