This holiday season is filled with opportunities to really shine as a hostess. I absolutely LOVE entertaining people in my home as well as planning large parties at off site locations (btw you’re invited). I also love doing fun twists to the usual treats. But what I don’t love is spending ALL of my time in the kitchen away from my friends. You know, the ones I invited over so we can spend time together?
What’s a hostess to do to keep things fresh but not tear your finely quaffed hair our? Make one pot of coffee for your after dinner dessert and let the guests make their own holiday flavored coffees! How do these sound: caramel almond, dark chocolate raspberry, coconut, peppermint perfection, chili chocolate, caramel apple delight, white chocolate, marshmallow caramel candy! You make ONE pot of coffee and the guests add Christmas candies to the bottoms of their cups before pouring.
How fantastically easy and super yummy. You could have a coffee urn set out with all of the ingredients displayed around it. Recipe cards could be placed with the different candies, but you could just let guests build their own. THIS WILL BE at my next event, for certain! I cannot wait.
Thank you to our friends at Eight O’Clock Coffee for the recipes!
