Time to warm up with some hot chocolate. Whether you make your own from scratch or mix it from a can, invite over a few friends to join the hot cocoa fun. Here are just a few of the ways you can mix up your winter treat!
I kinda wish it was snowing right now here in Seattle ;) Makes hot chocolate that much better!
Basic supplies to have on hand:
- hot chocolate mix
- hot water
Really, that’s all you need. But we like to make things interesting, right?!
Extras to make things a party:
- marshmallows – mini are the best or giant homemade marshmallows are fun too
- milk or cream
- whipped cream
- chocolate chips or chocolate shavings
- peppermint powder
- peanut butter
- candy spoons
- cookies to dip
- cookies to crush and sprinkle
- Pocky biscuit sticks for stirring – yum!
** Optional for adults: add a scoop or two of instant coffee to mix in and it’s a mocha! Or add a splash or two of Peppermint Schnapps, Kahlua or Bailey’s!
There are loads of ways to make and sip your hot cocoa. Get creative!
We scooped a spoonful of peanut butter and added sprinkles. It was really good in the chocolate. Creamy peanut butter and chocolate with a colorful crunch! Dip it in your hot chocolate and it’s heaven. Although these are pretty good just as the spoon too, fun for a special snack :)
Hooray for hot chocolate!
