IT’S DECEMBER GUYS!!!!!

Alright, so besides all this snow mumbo-jumbo that comes with thinking about the month of December, we also think about Christmas, Santa, reindeer, Ham dinner, presents, and dropping temperatures.

With dropping temperatures, the first thing that comes to mind is hot chocolate! There is NOTHING like a big ole’ cup of hot chocolate to help get the chills out of your spin on a below Floridian-blood cold day.

Problem is this: Florida is Florida. If anyone knows ANYTHING about Florida, or wants to know anything, it’s this: Florida’s weather is as bipolar as Jessica Lange in American Horror Story.

Here’s what I really mean: one day it can be 27 degrees out with a freeze warning, and within a 24-hour period, it’s back into the 80’s where the humidity literally chokes you.

Just from this sheer fact, it’s kind of hard to really get into a “hot chocolate” mood. You don’t want to burn up, but you want to really enjoy that cup o’chocolate.

I got the perfect solution!

Feast your eyes on this recipe here!

Rice krispies are fool-proof. That is, that they are easily transferred and enjoyed in any type of weather: hot as hell or Frozen cold.

This recipe allows you to enjoy that flavor and feels of hot chocolate without having to sweat your gahones off! Sounds perfect to me!

{Results}: EPIC WIN!

*Trust me when I say this, {you can} make these, too.
