All About the The Naptime Chef for JMcLaughlin Westport Party!

Peppermint Hot Fudge Sauce

Introducing The Naptime Chef for JMcLaughlin Westport! The grand opening of the JMcLaughlin store in Westport on Sunday December 12th was a blast. I was so pleased to introduce my limited edition Peppermint Hot Fudge line and chat with all of the fantastic customers. I also racked up quite a wish list which I promptly handed over to my husband. How I hope that faux-fur vest is under our tree this year!

I snapped lots of photos before the party started, so enjoy this visual tour of the event. And remember, I am catering their cafe all December so you can swing by for some fun nibbles any time. Also, the hot fudge went over so well that a few jars are available for sale in the New York City JMcLaughlin stores at 72nd Street & Lexington Avenue, as well as 93rd Street and Madison Avenue. If you are in the New York City area swing by and pick some up!

the Bar The bar was all set with nibbles like Spiced Pecans and Parmesan Cheese Straws. We served wine, seasonal ales and spiked mulled cider as well as sparkling water and cold spiced cider.

Apple Spiced Bundt Cake Apple Spiced Bundt Cake with Maple Sugar Glaze was a crowd pleaser at the coffee bar. My daughter helped me decorate it before I left the house, dousing it in red sanding sugar!

Spiced Pecans Man those Spiced Pecans were good. We also had Cheddar Pecan Biscuits, Chocolate Almond Crackles and Peanut Butter Hershey Kiss Cookies!

Holiday Recipe Book A Naptime Chef holiday recipe book was handed out to customers as a complimentary gift. They are still available while supplies last!

Candy Canes Santa came and handed out candy canes to all the children attending. A good time was had by all.
