Caramel white hot chocolate cookies with toasted marshmallow and gooey salted caramel - www.yummycrumble.comJust like one of my favorite Christmas songs, It’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  The Perry Como version of course.  As soon as Target gets their Christmas goodies up in the back of the store,  my insides squeal like a little girl.  This time of year is absolutely perfect.  Except for one thing.  No snow here in Orlando.  Bummer.  No snow equals no toasty hot drinks made of dreams.  Also known as hot chocolate.  So…I did what any sugar fiend would do!  I made hot chocolate into a cookie!

Caramel white hot chocolate cookies with toasted marshmallow and gooey salted caramel - www.yummycrumble.comIn all the excitement of my bright (and original for sure) idea, I googled hot chocolate cookies just to check.  A bazillion different versions came up.  Boo.  This seems to happen a lot, but after reading a post over at Love From the Oven I said to myself, “To heck with originality!  If it tastes good make it and share it!”  But since I’m scared of the recipe blogging police, I shook things up a bit.

I love nothing more than taking my son Oliver Trick or Treating.  Seeing his eyes light up with every drop in his bucket, and hearing him proudly exclaim “I’m a clone trooper!” to every neighbor.  It makes my heart smile.  But with that fun filled night comes loads and loads of candy I end up hiding from his greedy little hands.  Not so fun.

October has been such a blur. I remember thinking about how little the kids were last Halloween.  Last year, Jovi was still a newborn in a stroller while we chased a three year old Oliver around to each house on the street.  We had to repeat, “Remember to say Thank you!” after each stop.  Tonight though, Mr. four year old Oliver had it down perfectly.  “Trick or Treat!” and promptly, “Thank you!” would follow.  That’s my little guy.

Chocolate English Toffee Cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese frosting and salted caramel buttercream frosting - www.yummycrumble.comAlthough he’s growing so fast, he still does little things that let me know his innocence in still intact.  For instance, one afternoon a ridiculously sexualized commercial for a fast food restaurant was on the television.  It was a young lady eating a rather large cheeseburger in a super sensual way. There’s my son, Oliver right in front of the T.V. (with his nose two inches from the screen), large eyes and mouth wide open.  He turns to my husband right after the commercial, and says, “Daddy…” . I think “Dear God, here it comes…”, but he finishes by saying,

“That’s a big sandwich!”

I just wonder how long that innocence will last.
