No, I don’t have a tipsy Santa Claus. Instead of a cocktail recipe to round out our Twelve Days blog hop, I have something even better. CHOCOLATE! oh yeah!
How about Hot Chocolate by the Bowlful? Yep, forget that tiny cup of cocoa, let’s get the big bowl down to truly indulge in this warm confectionery treat. Just perfect for those blustery winter nights as you settle in to read all those books you ordered from our Soul Mate authors.
Hot Chocolate By the Bowlful
Start to finish time: 15 minutes Yields 8 servings.
4 Cups half-and-half, light cream or whole milk
3 to 4-oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 to 4-oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Yuumm. With all that terrible-for-us stuff, you know this just has to be great tasting. Right? And it’s quick and easy to make.
My final guest is Christi Barth and her book Tinsel My Heart.
Becca Huntley’s produced the Lyndale Park Player’s over-the-top Christmas pageant for ten years. The beloved Minneapolis tradition is the theatre’s main fundraiser. But this year’s production is almost canceled when their director disappears into rehab at the last minute. Good thing his directing partner steps in to save the day. Except for the minor fact that he hates everything about Christmas.
Jack Whittaker wiped the Twin Cities off his shoe with his graduation tassel and never looked back. But duty compels himto fulfill Tyler’s promise to direct the show. Even though it means working side-by-side with Becca, the girl he always wanted, lost to Ty, but never forgot. It’ll take more than a few handfuls of tinsel to soften Jack’s heart toward Becca’s favorite holiday. Steamy kisses that melt the snow right off his boots are a step in the right direction.
They’ll both discover that Christmas is about making each other’s dreams come true. But will doing so destroy their chance at a happily-ever-after together?
