Raspberry Hot Chocolate for a #SundaySupper Holiday Party

It’s that time of year when everyone gets together to see their loved ones for the holidays. Or even those fantastic work holiday parties that your company may hold, believe it or not I miss going to a company holiday party! Well why not host your own holiday gathering! Connie from The Foodie Army Wife is hosting this fabulous party and the #SundaySupper group has gotten together to provide you with some amazing appetizer and drink recipes for your next party!!

I decided to make a drink, as I was searching for what to make, I drooled over the holiday alcoholic ones, I then thought  maybe I’m better off making an appetizer because I can’t have alcohol this holiday season because of my little bambino, but there is always next year! Then I came across this awesome recipe for Raspberry Hot Cocoa, I knew this would be something my husband and I would enjoy some cold wintry night!

Our normal 7PM tweet chat has been canceled for this evening. I’d like to use this moment to say a special prayer for the victims of such a horrific tragedy that took place in CT on Friday, December 14th. A special thank you to the hero’s who risked their lives for those innocent children. I bow my head for those missing at their own Sunday Supper Dinner Table

We’d also love to feature your recipe for holiday parties on our #SundaySupper Pinterest board to share them with all of our followers, too.
