Baby, it's cold outside!
It's been sunny and blue skies this week in Portland, Oregon, but frosty cold.
I decided it was time to set up a hot chocolate station for the grandkids...
and I enjoy a cup now and then myself!
It's as easy as gathering your supplies and finding a nice tray or tote to set them in.
In my vintage berry tote I put:
-6 of my favorite Christmas mugs
-some packets of instant hot chocolate, the kind that you simply add boiling water to
(our oldest granddaughter knows how to make it herself with these packets)
-a large jar filled with Nesquick chocolate milk powder that you add to hot milk
(I'm not fond of the packaged hot chocolate so I prefer this)
-some spoons for stirring
- a jar of mini marshmallows
-a jar of Bob's soft peppermint sticks
(these melt into the hot chocolate and add the best peppermint flavor!)
Then I made a little Christmas-y looking Hot Chocolate sign.
Here's a copy for you to download and print.
Now all that's left to do is top it off with a cute bow and enjoy!
