hot chocolate

1.19.2011


The other day I stumbled upon the blog Creature Comforts again and saw she had made her own hot chocolate mix and marshmallows.  It looked like a fun and easy project and although I didn't try a marshmallow recipe yet, we had fun putting a hot chocolate mix together.


I dug through our cupboard and found an empty jar to store it in.  Made a little label for the jar...



We even got to use our mini snowman hot chocolate cups that we got for Christmas.


I decided to add mini chocolate chips to the mix.  It adds a little more chocolate kick at the end of your cup!

And now it's way more difficult to say no to "hot chocolate please?"
