The holiday chaos is in full swing and I find myself trying to find time for baking, shopping, kids school parties, and an assortment of other responsibilities.  I am up early, eating meals on the fly, and still up working after everyone else has gone to bed.  This is my busiest week due to all the holiday baking I like to do.  Today was an easy day because I made my homemade peanut brittle.  I have been making it for over 15 years and since it is made in the microwave and takes less than 10 minutes to make it is one of my favorite recipes!  Since the chef (ME!) is the one doing all the work, today I decided that I deserved a little treat.  I sat down with a plate of homemade peanut brittle and some Caza Trail Donut Shop coffee and had a nice little break!

I love the smell of a hot cup of coffee and the single serve Caza Trail Kcups come in very handy when it is just me at home alone in the afternoon.  I got even more festive by adding a splash of eggnog to my cup of coffee this afternoon.  Mainly because I have been so busy I haven’t had time to run to the store to buy more milk!  Rest assured, eggnog in coffee tastes delicious and with a few pieces of crunchy homemade peanut brittle I was in seventh heaven for about 15 minutes.  Then, back to the chaos of holiday chores!  If you would like to relax with your own cup of Caza Trail Donut Shop coffee you can head over to their Amazon page and buy some.  Hope you enjoy this peanut brittle recipe.  And there is no reason to tell anyone it only took you 10 minutes to make!

caza trail coffee

Every afternoon I try to steal 5 quick minutes to myself to enjoy a warm cup of coffee. There is something relaxing about a quiet moment, especially during the holiday season, sipping a warm beverage. The Caza Trail’s single serve Donut Shop blend is delicious! Not only did I enjoy the Donut Shop blend but there are 24 other Caza Trail varieties I am looking forward to trying . I love that they come in single size servings as I’m always on the go, especially this time of year!
