Strawberry hot chocolate is perfect for a cold day. You can also serve it cold for a decadent treat on a hot day or add a little Grand Marnier or Limoncello for a fun adult treat. I’m having Green’s homestyle Rugelach and Babka with mine!
I’m still using up older strawberries. The joys of Costco. Larger sizes and just me at home sometimes means I need to freeze my fruit or use it in baked goods. I used some of my strawberries in the strawberry marshmallow mousse tarts but I still have quite a few left.
Strawberry sauce is great to have in your fridge. You can top so many things with it – pancakes, waffles, ice-cream, pound cake. The list goes on. It’s so easy and quick to make too. Just 5 minutes.
It’s a glorious day here in Austin, Texas – around 80° F and sunny. This morning, my daughter called me from Purdue (Indiana) where it’s snowing heavily. Strawberry hot chocolate is perfect for both of us because it’s great hot or cold.
Green’s Bakery asked me to try their babka and rugelach. I’m never one to turn down chocolate baked goods. These are amazing! All the buttery, chocolaty goodness I put in my own baked goods delivered straight to my door. Now if the UPS man was just a bit cuter (and single), my Valentine’s Day would be made!
Did I mention their prices? They’re quite reasonable. Babka is a bit labor intensive (It’s a yeast bread) so if you want to make your own, you’ll need to set aside an afternoon to let it rise (3.5 hours). So $8.50 for a loaf is not a bad price especially for babka as rich and chocolaty as this one.
They also have drool-worthy cookies and cakes. If you’re still looking for a Valentine’s gift, order one of their gift baskets. Your Valentine will be in heaven.
Their baked products stay fresh for 6-8 weeks and you can freeze them if you want to order a bunch to save on shipping costs.
If you want to make your own babka, we have a recipe.
