Happy Christmas from the Bakeylicious kitchen

The Secret to a Bakeylicious Christmas Eve…


T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house

Children were trying to sleep.

They tossed and turned but could not settle.

Excitement was making them leap.

But Santa won’t come if children are up.

They need to be snug in their beds.

They need to have their eyes shut tight

With Christmas dreams in their heads.

To make this happen what can you do?

Warm up a pint of milk,

Stir in this powder and whisk it up

Until it’s smooth as silk.

Let it cool and share it out

And sprinkle with softness and stars.

If they drink it up and say goodnight

Their dreams will not be far.

When they wake up in the morning

Santa will have been.

He will have filled their sacks or stockings.

He will have done it while they dream.

He will then go back to his home

And there, what do you think?

He will want to go to sleep.

He will make this magic drink.

He will whisk it up and pour it out

And take it off to bed

Where dreams of happy children

Will drift into his head.


The magic powder is Jamie Oliver’s epic hot chocolate mix.  The recipe can be found at http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipe-print.php?url=epic-hot-chocolate.  The softness and stars are marshmallows and milkyway magic stars.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed that a nice cup of warm hot choc will send the bakeylicious babies off to sleep.  A shot of baileys in it may just do the job for me too later on.

So “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night” (hopefully).
