This Winter there has been plenty of time for sledding. We have had a lot of snow (and cold, too, unfortunately). One of my favorite things to do while sledding is sneak inside and prepare a great treat for the kids for when they come inside. Sometimes, it is chicken noodle soup. Other times it might be cookies or brownies. No matter what food I whip up, there is always hot chocolate to warm up the cold fingers and toes of my family.

Recently, I warmed up some friends and family with some delicious Hot Cocoa Cookies and hot chocolate. These cookies were made with Truvia Baking Blend. I like using Truvia because it reduces the sugar content of recipes without sacrificing the sweetness that we all love.

I have baked with Truvia many times in the past and each recipe has turned out great. These Hot Cocoa Cookies are equally delicious. The original recipe called for 2 cups of sugar but I substituted 1 cup of Truvia Baking Blend. They turned out great and were perfect when paired with hot cocoa.

Truvia is a natural sweetener made from the leaf of the Stevia plant. It offers a great taste with zero calories. It’s a great ingredient to use if you are watching your weight or diabetic because it does not affect your glycemic index.

Living in Northwest Indiana during the Winter can be difficult. But today, the snow was perfect so we had a little fun.

Snow Angels were made in the freshly fallen snow. And yes, it was snowing on me during these pictures. We couldn’t have picked a better day!
