French Hot Chocolate

French Hot Chocolate

I started taking French in fifth grade, and I’m fairly certain it was right around that same time I first heard tales of le chocolat chaud from my French teacher. Hyped as a thick, decadent mug of melted chocolate, it was when I was sixteen and sitting at a little café in Paris that I first truly understood those tales. The hype was absolutely every bit legit. French hot chocolate is about as delicious a thing that has ever been created. It’s more …

(Can’t stop, won’t stop, guys. The love affair is real.) Needless to say, me and my sweet tooth were more than happy to jump on board when they asked me to share a little …

10 Best Summer Mocktails

10 Best Summer Mocktails

I make no secret of the fact that I love a good cocktail, but as it turns out I’m also terribly fond of yummy, refreshing mocktails, too. You know how sometimes during the hot summer months you just need something fruity and delicious that goes beyond basic lemonade or iced tea? That’s what I’m talking about. Also, I know there’s plenty of you out there who probably don’t drink at all, so today is my little salute to you. We’re …

Nutella Hot Chocolate + Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Nutella Hot Chocolate + Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I’ve never pretended to be a food blogger and there’s a pretty good reason why, my friends. That’s one heck of a tough job taking those impeccably styled and beautiful photos all the while trying to make sure your cocoa isn’t too cold and you don’t have whipped cream flying all over the place! On that note, I won’t lie. While putting together this post there was a bit of an explosion of chocolate and melting whipped cream in my …

Root Beer Floats with Hot Fudge

Root Beer Floats with Hot Fudge

Root beer floats are about as classic as it gets. They remind me of being a kid when my parents owned an ice cream stand. We loved going there on the weekends and “helping out” in exchange for quarters for rounds of pinball and oversized root beer floats which we giddily slurped down. Maybe that’s why these root beer floats with homemade hot fudge just sound so good to me. They’re nostalgic and a reminder of carefree childhood days, but …

Hi! It’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt with a yummy grown-up version of an ice cream float, lavender floats. They are easy, and with just a hint of lavender flavor, a perfect late summer treat. All you will need to get started is some vanilla ice cream and Lavender DRY Soda.

Fill your glass half way with the lavender soda, add two scoops of ice cream, and garnish with a fresh lavender sprig. Instant summer ambience…and you have instant sweet simpicity. Delicious.
