Coping with the Holidays

I think we all need a little help getting through the craziness of the holidays.  Here are two things that I think will help you cope…

1.  Waffles

You can cope by adding a little crack cocaine to your waffle batter like the woman in this vintage advertisement or you can try this recipe…

Chocolate Peppermint Sundae

1 quart vanilla ice cream
Stonewall Kitchen Chocolate Peppermint Sauce
¼ cup crushed peppermint candy

Make 1 recipe Double Chocolate Waffle Mix according to canister directions.  Cut each waffle into quarters.  Warm Chocolate Peppermint Sauce in the microwave or over low heat in a small saucepan.  Make each serving by topping a waffle section with a scoop or two of ice cream.  Drizzle chocolate sauce over ice cream and sprinkle with peppermint candy.  Serve immediately.

2.  Booze

Booze will always help with the holiday hustle and bustle.  Give this a try.

Santa Shot

1 part grenadine syrup
1 part green crème de menthe
1 part peppermint schnapps

Pour grenadine to about 1/3 of your shot glass.  Carefully layer the crème de menthe, then the pepperming schnapps.
