Santa's Stiff Hot Chocolate

It's that time of year again! And no, I'm (sadly) not talking about Christmas. 

It's exam time, folks! The time when all I WANT to be doing is Christmas shopping, and decorating the house, and baking, and listening to holiday music, but instead I'm curled up in a stress-ball in my bed trying to cram all the information I've learned from the last three months into my head and hoping at least some of it sticks...

This weekend, I decided I needed a little de-stressified night-cap, so I dug into my bag of recipes and found this gem. Making fancy drinks is a lot of fun, and if they can also be Christmas-themed, then it's even better!

Plus, hot chocolate just makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside so who wouldn't want to sit back and relax with a nice hot mugful?

Making food and drinks is all I have to help me get in the holiday spirit during exam time. What do you do to help you get in the holiday spirit?
