Today I redeemed my free birthday drink at Starbucks. What that means is that I carefully calculated the most expensive drink on the menu and ordered that. What I came up with was a Tall Almond Milk Chai Tea Latte w/ 2 Shots of Espresso. I know, I could have gotten the grande but seriously who can drink 14 gallons of almond milk? I got the drink and took a swig. It was… AMAZING. It tasted like winter and Christmas with ginger, clove and nutmeg. Only thing missing was Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and fuzzy Santa slippers to make this the ultimate Christmas experience (I have both back the apartment).
My Chai Tea Latte inspired a new Nibble recipe and I’m sure you’ve guessed it by now… Chai Nibble: Chai Spiced Cake w/ Vanilla Chai Spiced Frosting Topped with Crystalized Ginger. It’s the closest I can get to baking the flavors of Christmas into a Nibble. The crystalized ginger puts this Nibble over the top. I LOVE ginger because it has bite and spice.
I couldn’t possibly hog these Chai Nibbles so I decided to bake special Christmas Nibble Variety Boxes. You can purchase the boxes by the dozen or 1/2 dozen. Since it’s the Christmas season I’ve decided to wave all delivery charges and will do drop-offs in the Lake Country / Waukesha area. I’ll be making two different variety boxes on three different days. $7.00 for a 1/2 dozen and $14 for a dozen. Check out the schedule & details below:
- Tuesday, December 19: Mocha & Lime in the Coconut
- Dozen and 1/2 dozen orders will be 1/2 Mocha and 1/2 Lime in the Coconut
- Orders must be requested by Monday, December 18th at noon
- Nibbles can be dropped off on Tuesday, December 19th
- Wednesday, December 20 & Thursday, Thursday, December 21: Chai & Red Velvet
- Dozen and 1/2 dozen orders will be 1/2 Chai and 1/2 Red Velvet
- Orders must be requested by Tuesday, December 19th at noon
- Nibbles can be dropped off on Dec 20 or Dec 21
Please note that if you order Nibbles by the dozen they will be delivered in the classic Nibbles pink box. If you order by the 1/2 dozen they will be delivered in a cool 6-pack egg carton decorated with a holiday Nibbles sticker on top. It’s a win-win for whatever you choose!
Order your Christmas Nibble Variety Boxes today for your boss, favorite hairdresser, kid’s teacher and mailman (my mailman, Glen, doesn’t know it yet but he’ll be getting a Nibble Box next week… lucky dude)! To request an order click HERE.
Wishing you hope, joy and lots of love. Merry Christmas oxoxo Meg
