Lay back in your favorite seat and watch the snow fall as you sip on a hot chocolate leaving the holiday hectics behind you. You and bae reconnect and talk about your favorite next goals or finally planning that vacation you’ve been waiting for! There’s nothing quite like cuddling up on the couch with a warm mug of delicious hot chocolate and enjoying each other’s company.
One fun way to switch up your hot chocolate game is by trying a twist on the classic recipe: Mexican hot chocolate. This traditional Mexican drink is made by mixing together cocoa powder, sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. The result is a rich, chocolatey drink that has a subtle kick of heat from the cayenne. It’s the perfect way to warm up on a chilly evening.
To make things a bit easier and more cultural, we received a box from Bespoke Post called Dulce. It comes with a Chocolatera jug, Molinillo Chocolate Whisk and red ceramic mugs from red terracotta. It also comes with Mexican spiced hot chocolate discs.
You can garnish your hot chocolate with whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder or cinnamon. Or you could add a shot of your favorite liqueur, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for some extra indulgence.
With the warm, delicious flavors of Mexican hot chocolate and the cozy ambiance of a winter wonderland, your hot chocolate date night at home is sure to be a hit. It’s the perfect way to spend a cold winter evening with your loved one, enjoying each other’s company and indulging in some delicious treats
What was it like when you first met? Maybe it was the day you’ve made him/her laugh, or the first time you’ve realized you were falling for them. Why not try recreating a favorite past date? This is a great way to relive fond memories and create new ones at the same time.
One of the key elements of a successful date is setting the right atmosphere. Think about the ambiance of the original date and try to recreate it at home. For example, if you went to a fancy restaurant, try setting the table with nice dishes and candles. If you went to a concert or show, put on some music and dim the lights.
Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you have to dress down. Make an effort to dress up as you would for a night out on the town. You’ll both feel more special and it will make the date feel more special too.
At the end of the date, take a moment to reflect on the memories you made together on the original date and the new ones you just created. It’s a nice way to end the evening on a positive note and give you both something to look forward to.
Fondue is a fun and delicious way to spend an evening with bae. Not only is it a great way to bond and socialize, but it’s also an easy and affordable way to entertain. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can host your own fondue night at home and enjoy all the flavors and fun of this classic party food.
To start, you’ll need to gather the right equipment. For cheese fondue, you’ll need a fondue pot or a heavy-bottomed pot that can be heated over a stove or a heat source. A long-handled fork or skewer is also necessary for dipping the food into the cheese. For chocolate fondue, you’ll need a smaller pot or a fondue pot specifically made for chocolate. You will also need skewers or forks for dipping fruits, cookies or cake.
When it comes to ingredients, cheese fondue is best made with a blend of different cheeses, such as Gruyere, Emmental, and Appenzeller. You can also add garlic, white wine, and a touch of nutmeg for added flavor. For chocolate fondue, you’ll need some good-quality chocolate and heavy cream. You can also add some flavorings like vanilla or liqueur for an added kick.
Next, decide on some dipping items for cheese and chocolate fondue. Some classic options include bread, crackers, and vegetables for cheese fondue, and fruits, cookies, and cake for chocolate fondue. Experiment with different options to find what you like best.
Once you’ve got your ingredients and equipment ready, it’s time to set the scene. Set the table with small plates and skewers or forks for dipping. Light some candles, put on some music and you’re ready to go!
If you live in the Chicago area, you can give the Geja at home kit a try. They will provide the cheese or chocolate base along with the foods that would go with them. We had a date there last month and it was a fantastic experience!
Are you looking for a new way to spend quality time with your significant other? One fun and intimate way to do so is by starting a date night book club at home.
The idea is simple: choose a book, set a schedule to read it, and then come together to discuss it. This not only allows you to share your thoughts and insights on the book, but also gives you the opportunity to learn more about your partner ‘s perspective and interests. Plus, it can also be a great way to explore new genres and authors that you may not have read otherwise.
Next, set a date for your book club discussion. This could be a regular weekly or monthly date night. Make it special by setting the scene, maybe light some candles or make some snacks, put on background music and dress up for the occasion. Once you are ready to discuss, take turns sharing your thoughts and observations about the book.
The key is to find something that you both will enjoy reading and discussing. Once you have chosen a book, set a schedule for reading. This could be a certain number of chapters or pages per week, or even a set date to finish the book by.
Having a date night book club at home is a fun and intimate way to spend time together. Not only will it give you the opportunity to bond over literature, but it can also be a great way to learn more about each other and grow your relationship. So why not give it a try and start your own date night book club?
