I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Hood Cream. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The holiday season is my favorite time of year as a mommy.  As soon as November 1st is upon us, we put away our apple cider and start enjoying hot chocolate as often as possible.
This year is unlike most, with each day this week being in the high sixties.  Usually living in New England means that by November we have already pulled out our winter coats and snow boots, and on most years we have already had at least one snow storm.  So as you can imagine, a great hot chocolate recipe is a must!

For me there is nothing better than sipping on hot chocolate with the kids while decorating, wrapping Christmas gifts, and watching movies at night.
We are thrilled to have this easy and delicious new hot chocolate recipe thanks to the free Hood Cream eCookbook!
The Peppermint Hot Chocolate is a must try!

This recipe was super easy to make, it only took about 10 minutes, so I loved it.
It tasted amazing and was perfectly sweet so the kids loved it more!
I have always been a fan of Hood Cream, It was what my Nana kept stocked in her fridge so the brand loyalty goes through generations in my family.  Now, knowing that it is also the brand choice of top restaurant chef’s, makes me feel like a better cooker every time I reach for it.
Now my recipe collection including Hood Cream has grown thanks to the Hood Cream E-Cookbook that launched on September 28th!  I am obsessed with all the delicious recipes it includes using Hood Cream by renowned Chef Chris Coombs!
