Who doesn’t like a nice cup of hot chocolate?! It’s probably my favorite thing to drink during Christmas time…I prefer it over eggnog, apple cider, mulled wine, etc. I also love to put candy canes, whipped cream, and marshmallows in my cup of hot chocolate because why not?! Gotta live it up during the holidays. Sometimes, if I’m feeling adventurous, instead of using the pre-made packs of hot chocolate in, I will make my own.

Classic Pumpkin Bread

When I think of Fall and Winter I think of pumpkin bread. For as long as I can remember I’ve always (or my mom has always) made pumpkin bread during this time of year. Some years I make pumpkin bread almost every other week. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m obsessed with pumpkin bread…well no, actually I would go as far as to say that. In fact, for my college essay I compared myself to pumpkin bread… Now, I’ve tried a few different recipes and this one that’s listed below is by far my favorite. This recipe makes bread that is (excuse this word) moist, and full of sweetness and fall spices. What could be better?! You only need one bowl for this entire recipe and it takes all of 8 minutes to whip together. I did halve the recipe so it usually makes 2 loaves. Full condensed recipe will be at the end of this post!
