How can you you go wrong with a name like Cinnamon Bun White Hot Chocolate? Everything about it sounds absolutely delicious! This new spin on an already great treat will be sure to warm your toes on these cold fall nights. Try this recipe from sugarhero.com for your next relaxing night in!

Cinnamon Bun White Hot Chocolate
yields: 2 servings

2 cups whole milk
2 cinnamon sticks, coarsely broken
4 ounces good-quality white chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract pinch salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Optional garnishes:
2 tablespoons lightly whipped cream
2 tablespoons toasted pecans or candied pecans, chopped
1 tablespoon caramel sauce

Combine the milk and the broken cinnamon sticks in a saucepan and bring the milk to a simmer. Once simmering, remove the pan from the heat, cover it with a lid, and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to infuse the milk with cinnamon flavor.

After 30 minutes, remove the cinnamon sticks and return the saucepan of milk to medium heat. Add the chopped white chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla bean paste, salt, and ground cinnamon. Heat, whisking frequently, until the milk is hot and the white chocolate is completely melted.

Pour into two mugs to serve. Garnish with your choice of whipped cream, additional cinnamon, toasted or candied pecans, or a drizzle of caramel sauce. (Or all of the above!)

Branding Classy & Sassy for our Followers


Classy&Sassy_LogoDesign
The idea behind the name of our brand is to target women and encourage them to be “classy & sassy” in all that they do by devoting more time to themselves – basically empower all women. Our blog offers women, typically between the ages of 18-30, advice on various things such as, fashion, food, health, and beauty. A few words that would represent the qualities of our blog are, friendly, encouraging, trendy, healthy, fashion forward, and inspiring.

It was a fun and challenging project to come up with the concept for our Classy & Sassy logo. We wanted to keep the idea simple, yet elegant, so we used the “CS” to create an image that our followers could easily associate with Classy & Sassy, and that also corresponds to the already established look and feel of our blog. We feel that the colors that would best represent our blog would be neutral colors such as grays, tans, gold, nudes, and possibly even pastels. These colors give off a more high-end feel in which we hope will target a more sophisticated audience.

In the end, we chose to use the gray and white CS because it was simple, yet very easy to identify. We think that it is the perfect combo of Classy & Sassy!
