Fight the Cold with Nutella Hot Chocolate

12:30 PM

Food Temperatures are really starting to drop here on the East Coast and I'm not exactly the happiest camper. Normally, the cold doesn't bother me but this season I've been feeling like my toes are going to fall off and my hands are constantly the equivalent to icicles.

Since I can't rip my fireplace out of my living room wall and carry it with my everywhere, hot chocolate is my next best option to keeping me warm. Hot chocolate is the best when it's creamy and super chocolatey, so when I found this Nutella Hot Chocolate recipe from Kirbie's Cravings, I had to immediately share it.

It's super easy and doesn't require a lot of ingredients, so what could be better? Spend a day this weekend snuggled up on the couch for a movie marathon with tons of blankets and a big mug of Nutella hot chocolate. Sounds good to me.

Do you have any easy hot chocolate recipes?

A Look Back on 2012 Through YouTube

1:08 PM

I came across this emotional video on Mashable. Two days ago, Jean-Louis Nguyen posted this video montage on his YouTube Channel. Set to the song of “The Might Rio Grande” by This Will Destroy You, it includes moments of happiness and sadness. He put together clips of important and impacting events like Hurricane Sandy, the London Olympics, the suicide of Amanda Todd and many more that occurred in 2012.

This video doesn't seem any more appropriate to surface the web than now, considering all the speculation the world is coming to end December 21, according to the Mayan calendar. (more…)

United States of Pop 2012 – “Shine Brighter”

1:41 PM

Every year DJ Earworm releases a mashup in his series “United States of Pop,” which began in 2007. This year's mashup is called “Shine Brighter” and consists of the top 25 songs based on Billboard rankings.

This year's mashup is definitely cool, but in previous years they have sounded much better. Maybe the selection of songs didn't fit as well together than the one's previously? Kesha's “Die Young” is the major backing track.

What do you think of this year's mashup?
