One of my favourite things to do around the holiday season is to make cookies! While my parents are partial to my peppermint chocolate chip cookies, my absolute favourite Christmas cookies has always been cut-out cookies.
‘Tis the season for Candy Cane everything! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m in full Holiday mode, thanks to all those delightfully terrible made-for-TV Christmas movies. (I know, I know, super corny. But they are so bad they are good!) We had our very first snowfall today too!
As a result, all I want to do is wrap presents, stay in my onesie and work by our Christmas tree. I’m also craving everything chocolate-y and peppermint. So naturally, I started baking!
It’s no secret that I love everything related to fall. (See Exhibit A and Exhibit B here.) Naturally, with it being fall, I am craving pumpkin everything and I’m on a mission to do as many fall things as I can before it’s over.
Pumpkin bread, scones, cake, ice cream, candles, I love it all! And then I thought to myself, what is the one thing I like more than pumpkin? Tea of course, and then it hit me: Pumpkin Chai Cupcakes!!!
I have to admit that I was inspired by one of my favourite teas for this particular recipe… of course I’m referring to DAVIDsTea’s Pumpkin Chai! It is seriously the perfect tea for fall and warming the soul up after a crisp, fall day. I love the mix of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and chai spices. It’s the perfect balance and drink for fall.
I don’t know about you guys, but hot chocolate is kind of a staple in my house during the Holidays. I’ve seen some recipes like hot chocolate cookies, brownies cake, etc. before and one day I woke up craving hot chocolate and pancakes so I thought, hey why not!
