hot chocolate

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?”

    Having just discovered the joys of marshmallows in hot chocolate, extra chocolate chips could send me over the edge. Yummy.
