Right after Nico’s birthday weekend, our holiday traditions start by playing Peanuts (my forever favorite movie), wearing festive outfits, removing the dust of last year’s ornaments and baking lots and lots of cookies for Santa. We spent our Sunday afternoon smelling all things chocolate and cookie dough, with two of the messiest little helpers a mama can ask for, and I swear, our baking sessions are 10 times slower than any other but it’s priceless to see Olivia eating some dough and Nico trying to crack those eggs by himself.
I’ve learned that we, as moms, need to take a long deep breath and let them play, let them explore, and have all the fun in the kitchen and as much as they want, and even more when Chocolate is involved in the equation, because let’s be real, we all know magical things happen, instantly.
We discovered Chocolat Favoris’s new cooking line, and I cannot wait to show you what’s new, a fun recipe and our first magic moments with our little cuties.
|Proud Mini chocolatier, most precise measuring dude and the funniest 5-year-old boy who loved our baking afternoon was the master chef in charge, picking up our recipe, ingredients and even all the details of our cookies.
