Indulging with Cafe Escapes!

by Nicole on December 26, 2012

Hi! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! I enjoyed lots of family time with everyone and savored every moment. It was a very special day for our family of 3 and I frequently stopped to just look around and feel thankful for the day.

I had Christmas dinner at my house so I spent the morning getting everything prepared and together. I had a good amount of help so everything went well. I will be sharing some of the recipes I made soon because we had some pretty rave reviews. When dessert time came around I was excited to be able to share some of the Cafe Escapes coffees and hot chocolates with my guests. Cafe Escapes is a collection of hot flavored indulgent beverages that provide an everyday treat and a chance to relax and savor the moment. Each flavor is rich, satisfying, and decadent, but not TOO decadent that you can’t enjoy it everyday. (We all know this is a good thing for me, because I certainly drink coffee every day!)

Since Christmas is the perfect time to enjoy indulgences, I broke this out around dessert. We are some pretty serious coffee drinkers in my family, so we really don’t often use a keurig.  I have to admit that my mom and step dad wouldn’t try any because they aren’t into flavors/sweet tasting coffee. The younger crowd was more up for it. I ended up making dark chocolate hot chocolate, milk chocolate hot chocolate, cafe vanilla and cafe mocha.

My favorite was the cafe mocha which is describes as a “blissful balance between cocoa and coffee”. Everyone enjoyed all variations of the chocolate (dark chocolate & milk chocolate hot chocolate and cafe mocha.) I actually really liked the cafe vanilla, but my husband thought it was a little too sweet. It was a perfect way to indulge during dessert.

Yesterday was a day of indulgences. My sister and I spent some quality time together and went to Soul Cycle (which is definitely an indulgence because of it’s $$). After almost missing the class because we got lost on the way there we decided to doubly treat ourselves to some hot chocolate when we got home. A good workout and some chocolate is probably my number 1 way to indulge (besides a manicure & pedicure!)

Overall I really love the Cafe Escapes line. I think it’s a great way to treat yourself. I also love how QUICK and easy it is to enjoy a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. This is a must for me as a new mom! Not to mention it’s perfect for guests because everyone can have what they want and you don’t have to worry about making a whole pot of something that not everyone will love.
