Skip the store brought mix and make your own Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix. Great to have on hand for those cold days.
I’m taking a little break from the healthier options I’ve been sharing lately to bring you this Homemade Cocoa Mix. Perhaps today the kiddos are home from school for Martin Luther King day, playing outside (well at least for my northern friends) and will need to warm up. Making your own mix is easy to do and this one is kicked up a notch with finely ground white chocolate.
I’m known to drink my cocoa too! Sometimes when I can’t fall asleep, I’ll make myself a small serving with some nice warm milk. Then I go to bed and count sheep – kidding – but a drink of cocoa tends me make me sleepy.
What do you think of the pink marshmallows? I found them a couple weeks ago on clearance and they are peppermint flavor! They compliment the cocoa perfectly.
Keep warm folks or pretend you want to! Have a great Monday!
