Santa's Cookie Tester

He's a big jolly guy, so he gets the big blue mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream and a teeny sprinkle of cinnamon on top.  Cinnamon is good for blood sugar and with all of those cookies, Santa needs a little faux ho ho dieting here and there.

He won't notice the sugar free hot cocoa as long as there is some dreamily melting low fat whipped cream forming a hazy oasis on the top.  Too much milk will make him sleepy and he has to finish all those deliveries before daybreak!

I've tested the hot beverage and a small selection of cookies.  I think it passes Santa's dietary standard requirements.  The reindeer's carrots and apples are going to be fresh when Santa stops at my house.  Dee, there is a Santa stop for me!

What will  you put out for Santa and his reindeer?

When we had little ones in the house we always left cookies and milk and a big carrot for the reindeer ( just one though they would share it) wink. xo

Gingerbread cookies with royal icing and spiced apple cider ... I know, way too much sugar! LOL!

And "Danny Boy" (our miniature pinscher) leaves out some of his special treats for the reindeer! Carob coated doggie cookies....

Katherine, right, the reindeer had so many carrot snacks that night, but then burned off all the calories inflight - unlike us. ha ha

Brady, I'd like some of that cider, please! And just how long do the carob cookies stay before Danny Boy finds them? ha ha

You know, I think it's a good thing that Santa's not lactose intolerant.
