Hot Cocoa Tasting
We tried a total of 18 cocoas over the course of two days in a blind tasting. Swiss Miss, we could spot you from the first sip.
Cocoa tastings mean many cocoa-crusted mugs to wash after. (Thanks, Hannah!)
SE Holiday Party
We hosted a cookie swap this week. What's a cookie swap? You bake cookies, then swap them. Sugar-induced merriness ensues. Stay tuned next week for a roundup of all the recipes, including mini chocolate-peanut butter whoopie pies, Momofuku's compost cookies, and whoops-the-whiskey-fell-into-my-Tollhouse-batter.
Dumpling, Meet Dumpling
And I couldn't help but bake Dumpling-shaped gingerbread cookies. Please note the crazy eyes on both (one is made of chocolate chips).
Dumpling Eats Dumpling
He went for the ears first (smart move). Don't worry we picked off the chocolate chips to avoid poisoning his little dog body.
