What a group….what a night…..nothing like bringing in the new year with loved ones and happy tummies….
The kiddos loved the hot cocoa bar

- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 6 cups of milk

cook on low for 2 hours and stir once in awhile
i also made my strawberry puree which can be added into moscato for adults or into 7 up with a twist of lime and whipped cream and sprinkles (fresh strawberry spritzer recipe HERE)
i made a 4 layer lemon cake (cake recipe HERE)
and fondue (which i found at world market)
- whole grain baguettes
- french baguettes
- tortilla chips
our new kitchen lights were installed just in time for the celebration and i absolutely adore them…i sent my hubby to lowes at about 2 in the afternoon….kissing him goodbye and letting him leave with 100% trust that he’ll pick out the best 3 pendants…i’d say he did really well…don’t you?
we laughed, ate, played games and brought in the new year with happiness and togetherness….2 of my favorite things……happy new year!
