December always reminds me of holidays and celebrations. Though the month starts off with the half-yearly exams, the kids look forward to the ten long days of vacation and the parents join the fun too. Even at work, it normally ends up being a fun-filled and holidaying mood. I remember the many Christmas based events and games we always had during December and this year too, we decided that we should do something similar.
The ingredients required for making the entire quantity was mind blowing! We custom ordered 8 kilos of Potato Wafers. The wafers had to be thin and crispy. I am sure listing out the other ingredients in their whole quantity will not surely work out. So I will scale down to a smaller measurement.
Of course, when it comes to chat there is never enough!
Since the other two recipes were already blogged, I requested my colleague to click pictures while I was preparing it.
Chocolate Milkshake is always a winner and it can never go wrong in pleasing. Since I had made it previously, there was a common demand for it to be made again.

15 liters of milk was used, 2 big Hershey's chocolate syrup with 10 20 gm chocolate bars along with 2 huge vanilla family packs. There was an unlimited supply flow and I have never seen such content faces before this.
