I finished my last final of the year on Wednesday! I am beyond elated! Since I have the house all decorated for Christmas- tree’s up, stockings hung, presents wrapped and everything, I thought I would share with you guys some of our photos over Thanksgiving break including our Christmas card photos. Also, I want to share with you my new favorite holiday treat! Recipe and step by step photos and some extra sweetness below Holiday photos, enjoy 🙂

Now for the Holiday Sweet Fix:
Peppermint Cookies and Cream Milkshake (1 serving)
Ingredients and Utensils:
-Glass cup or Mason Jar
-Cup of warm water
-4 Scoops of Peppermint flavored ice-cream (I used Bluebell)
– 3/4 cup of milk
-Handful of Chocolate cookies with cream filling (Oreos will work)
-Whipped Cream and Cherry for topping
Step 1: Place handful of cookies into a ziplock bag. I used the bottom of my glass to crush the cookies in the bag.
Step 2: Set your ice-cream scoop into the cup of warm water.
Step 3: Scoop out 2 scoops of peppermint ice-cream and place in your glass.
Step 4: Sprinkle some of the cookie pieces on top of your icecream scoops.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4. Save a tiny bit of cookie crumbles for your topping.
Step 6: Pour in the 3/4 cup of milk.
Step 7: Gently mix all ingredients together in your glass with your long spoon until desired milkshake consistency is reached. Milkshake consistency should be thick and smooth and not too runny.
Step 8: Top with whipped cream, cherry, and leftover cookie crumbles if any!
Step 8: Enjoy! And share with your little ones, friends, and family… my little man sure enjoyed it, as if you couldn’t tell from the cookie on his face! 😉
Everyone have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and Happy and safe New Year!
