How are you? Are you getting ready for CHRISTMAS this week? I can’t believe it, really. 

Let’s chat about this deliciousness in a glass. It’s the perfect treat, in my opinion!

When I was young, my dad would take us to Serendipity in the city which is famous for their frozen hot chocolate. It was double the size of my head and so delicious. Today I’ve partnered with Pacific Foods to bring you back to those days of a frozen hot chocolate the size of me, minus the stomach ache! Plus, sea salt because chocolate and sea salt makes the greatest combo ever.

      Recipe Notes

      • *Can top with a piece of unbleached parchment paper while cooling in the refrigerator (this prevents the pudding from forming a skin)

      Coffee Fudge Chunk Ice Cream

      Happy Monday, my friends! This weekend was nice and relaxing, with some fun LCK events added to the mix. On Friday, the two winners from my Chestnut Hill Square giveaway (Ali and Dana) and I took a spin class at SoulCycle, had lunch at SweetGreen, picked out earrings at Francesca’s, got a gluten-free cupcake from Sweet, and for out last stop, went over to Athleta where we got some brand new yoga mats! What an awesome day with two awesome local Boston ladies!

      THEN, on Saturday I took a fitness class at The Street in Chestnut Hill followed by me serving up some goodies at Lululemon! I brought with me my Watermelon Basil Salad, Cookie Bars, and Sea Salt Almond Butter Cups and hung out in the store meeting awesome readers and local shoppers! It was a great day. Mike and I went out to dinner at our local favorite spot, Tempo later that night, and then had a productive rainy Sunday (and Jax had a little puppy play date)!
