Lavender Honey Posset: The Easiest Entertaining Dessert You’ve Never Heard Of

This honey posset recipe is my go to entertaining dessert because they require no special ingredients, can be made ahead and they look so fancy! We won’t tell anyone how insanely simple they are.

Up until about a year ago, I had never heard of a posset before. A sweet friend shared her recipe with me as her most made dessert and I was immediately so intrigued…just 4 ingredients and no tempering eggs or messing with gelatin?!

My interest had been thoroughly piqued and I made it that week for a dinner party. I now consider this one of my greatest entertaining skill sets too!

Today I’m sharing with you my favorite version of this dish….lavender honey posset. My guests are always a little thrown off by lavender showing up in their dessert but as soon as they taste it, all things are right again in the world.

The flavors here are delicate, creamy, intricate, refreshingly different to the palate. The dish is thick and custardy but not in the way an egg custard is and nothing like a gelatin based dessert. Its simplicity is a thing of beauty.

Boozy Irish Cream Chai Latte

This boozy irish cream chai latte is the perfect marriage of warm and cozy flavors. Top it with whipped cream, cinnamon and homemade chocolate sauce if you are feeling extra indulgent.

My all time favorite drink to get while we are out and about is a chai latte with extra whipped cream and lots of cinnamon on top. It just screams winter to me and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Well this boozy irish cream chai latte literally will make you warm and fuzzy inside! We paired a shot of whiskey and a shot of irish cream with our drink base to bump up the warming sensations.

If you have been around here for long you know we are all about the kale salad, avocado toast breakfasts and making stir fry sauces out of real ingredients for our family. You also know that we aren’t afraid to break out the pie and cocktails and pour chocolate over everything. It’s all about balance in our house.

Some days are for celebrations. Some days are for jumping up and down with excitement and grinning from ear to ear. Some days are for picking yourself up again and dusting yourself off again and pushing forward. And some days still are for curling up in bed and having a good cry. And some weeks each day can be one of those in rapid repeat fire order.

It’s been an incredibly packed last few weeks on our front. I may write about some of the events that have transpired these past few weeks and I may not. Some things are just best left on their own instead of sharing with the world.

But what cannot wait to be shared with the world are these jalapeno popper turnovers! This is basically my favorite appetizer ever (bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers) mashed up in a creamy cheesy mixture and wrapped in a warm pillow of light crunchy cheese baked goodness.
