Christmas Hot Cocoa

Pin It Now!

Every December my kids look forward to this festive treat!! Really it's just hot chocolate with Christmas flair.

In December it is finally cool enough to actually enjoy a hot drink here in the desert. Notice I didn't say cold enough, though!!

Okay, so here's what I do to make it extra special during the holiday season:
  • First, I just make the hot cocoa, homemade is best!
  • Next, top with fluffy whipped cream.
  •  Sprinkle red and green sugar crystals on top of whipped cream.
  •  Last, I adorn the side of the Christmas mug with a small red and white candy cane. This not only adds a beautiful touch but a hint of minty taste as well.
 Oh, so festive and yummy!

Of course everyone has to have a Christmasy mug, and Tamra just so you know, I still use that elegant Christmas mug from Starbucks you gave me a few Christmases ago. I absolutely love it to pieces, and I use it on a regular basis in the month of December. In fact, it is sitting here on my night stand, empty of course!! Yes, I sneaked myself some Christmas cocoa during the kids' rest time!!!

Christmas cheers to everyone!
