Sparkling Christmas Cocktail, Mocktail, Lemon Berry Punch

Kid Friendly Christmas Mocktail

Oh my gosh its Christmas Eve! When did that happen? The Christmas season has gone by so far with everything we’ve had going on – but I look forward to a weekend full of fun and family!

We all know the holidays are a time for get togethers with friends, families and kids. Everyone always has festive drinks to serve and the kids are left out, but there are so many drink ideas for “mocktails” that are great for kids or anyone who doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages. This Christmas I made Lemon Berry Christmas Mocktails!

Sparkling Christmas Cocktail, Mocktail, Lemon Berry Punch

Sparkling Lemon Berry Punch Recipe


  • DASANI Sparkling Water – Lemon Flavor
  • Simply Fruit Punch
  • Sugar
  • Food Coloring
  • Ice


To make this drink, I used DASANI Sparkling Water in the Lemon flavor. They are available at Walmart in 12 packs and a great alternative to have in the fridge year round.


Just pour your favorite flavor (I used Lemon) of Dasani Sparkling Water over ice. Add a few splashes of Simply Fruit Punch.


To add something more to the drink, garnish with a candy cane or even dip the glass in Red and Green Pixie Stix powder!


DASANI Sparkling Water comes in 4 different flavors, Lemon, Lime, Berry and Black Cherry. DASANI Sparkling Water is also the perfect mixer for all your holiday drinks. It is zero calories, unsweetened, zero artificial colors, and it’s caffeine-free!

One Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate cake

1 Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

In September I told you about Lonestar Eggs and how good they were. They are a Texan company that is proud to be part of Texas and providing us Texans with a quality product. Since trying them, we haven’t purchased any other type of eggs. They really do have more flavor than your generic supermarket egg and the price is very similar.


A few days ago I gave a new recipe a shot, that was a little different from the regular egg recipe, so I decided on trying a mug cake recipe. The one I made was delicious and was one of my favorite combinations of flavors – peanut butter and chocolate.

This recipe couldn’t be any easier and you don’t have to make a big mess in your kitchen because it’s all made in a mug! This peanut butter mug cake uses just four ingredients and takes only 1 minute to bake. Here is what you need to do.


1-Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake


  • 1 Egg (I used Lonestar Eggs)
  • 3 Tablespoons Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Mini Chocolate Chip
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar

How to make:

STEP ONE: Crack 1 egg into a large microwave safe mug. Wisk well.

STEP TWO: Add in 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips. Mix very well.


STEP THREE: Microwave on high for 1 minute. Let sit and cool for 2-3 minutes and then enjoy!

peanut-butter-mug-cake-02Easy, right? This is the perfect dessert for those evenings when you want a sweet treat but don’t have the time or energy to make something bigger! So grab some Lonestar Eggs next time you are shopping for your groceries and try making a mug cake of your own!


What is your favorite dessert to make that includes eggs?

Halloween is such a fun time of the year, and there are so many unique snacks you can make. Some of them are much more complicated than others, and, honestly, we don’t have time to get involved in those right now. We are in the process of moving, so we are busy all the time. I still want to make sure Lennox has a happy October and Halloween, so this weekend, in between packing, I put together some fun Halloween Zombie Pudding Cups for her!

Halloween Zombie Pudding Cups

What you will need:

  • Snack Pack® pudding (chocolate, vanilla or butterscotch)
  • Chocolate cookie sandwiches (crumbled)
  • Gummy zombie hands (found with the holiday edible candies and cake decorations)

How to Make:

STEP 1: While preparing, place the Snack Packs® in the fridge or freezer for a few moments to stiffen up the pudding a little bit.

STEP 2: Place two cookie sandwiches (minus the cream filling – you can eat it, I won’t judge!) in a small bag.


STEP 3: Using a rolling pin, crumble the cookie sandwich pieces into cookie crumbs. This will be the dirt for our zombie’s grave!

STEP 4: Take out your pudding packs and open.

STEP 5: Sprinkle a layer of cookie crumbs on top of each pudding pack to create a layer of “dirt.”

STEP 6: Insert the zombie hands into the pudding cup. This will create the appearance that a zombie is coming out of the ground! How fun!

Serve and Enjoy!

If you enjoyed this snack idea, there are plenty of other ones you can make, including cookie black cats that I shared last year – easy and fun as well!
