This week I’ve been getting my home ready for the holidays. Brad and I are hosting Thanksgiving then my home becomes a winter wonderland as we get ready for Christmas. I’m looking forward to hosting people throughout the holiday season (including a cookie exchange party that should be lots of fun).
There are two things that are integral to a fun holiday party – delicious dessert, and delicious wine. Today, I’m sharing both of these with you.
Individual Peppermint Chocolate Pudding Dessert
- 2 cups milk
- 1 small package of instant chocolate pudding
- ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
- Whipped Cream & Mini Candy Cane for Garnish
- Whisk milk, pudding mix, and peppermint extract per pudding directions
- Pour into individual glasses
- Top with Whipped Cream & Candy Cane when ready to serve
The peppermint and chocolate flavors are perfect together. I even found some peppermint flavored whipped cream which was the perfect topping to this dessert.
Every good dessert and party also needs some delicious wine. Wente Vineyards features a variety of wines which are perfect for your parties this holiday season. I picked up some Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvingnon for Thanksgiving and they will go great with this delicious dessert. I’ve tried a couple of their wines in the past and was definitely a fan so I will be happy to serve them with our holiday meal. I’m not the only one who is a fan of these wines, the 2014 vintage of the Wente Vineyards Morning Fog Chardonnay scored an awesome 90 points from Wine Enthusiast!
How are you celebrating the holidays this year?
