Hot Chocolate AND cupcakes?! heaven.

Today Mal and I got our BAKE on!
Her friends all decided to do something small for each other.. and so Mallory found these delicious Hot Chocolate with Hershey Kiss Center Cupcakes from Picky Palate.
(click on picky palate to go to the recipe!)

We hit up Target and Walmart to get some cute coffee mugs, hot chocolate mix, nail polishes, and the ingredients to make the cupcakes.

She's going to give each of her friends a few cupcakes and then the mugs with some fun nail polish colors. They're going to LOVE it!

We got back from the store and set to work!

The batter was delicious!! I snuck some pics of Mal when she was test-tasting it!
While the cupcakes were in the oven we took some pics:
me, mama, & mallory
me and mal

And before we knew it, they were done!
I wish there was a way to send each of you a cupcake, because you really have to taste these!
They weren't hard to make.. so if you need a holiday dessert check out the recipe and try them for yourself!

While we were baking them I sent a tweet @pickypalate
(aka my blogging IDOL) and a few minutes later she replied to me.
Can I just tell you.. I am STILL on Cloud 9.

I'm dying to meet her. That tweet MADE my DAY!
It's the little things in life.. :)

Hope everyone's having a wonderful Wednesday before Christmas!!
