A Cinnamon and Chocolate Christmas ~ Song-Inspired Recipes (vol. 1)
One of my favorite Christmas songs is Butterfly Boucher’s Cinnamon and Chocolate. We discovered this song last year when Teddy was a wee babe. He’s my baby bird. My heart leapt when I first heard this again a few days ago. My mind turned to making cinnamon and chocolate desserts for Christmas. I tried them. Here they are, along with a few lyrics to Butterfly’s sweet song. It’s available at iTunes .
Hush, little baby bird,
nest in my arms,
I’ll keep you warm.
In the night the stars will watch
and guide your spirit.
Underneath the whipped cream lies a heart of cinnamon & chocolate goodness
We still have cinnamon and chocolate,
Holly and pine
Hearts will warm when fire’s burning
Patience there’s time
Chocolate-Cinnamon Bread is super-delicious. One of my fave quick breads, ever.
In the still before the dawn
There’s the whisper, there’s a song
When the morning comes
And night has gone, there is joy
There is joy
