It’s that time of year. Once the first snow falls, we here at the Child’s Play household usher in the ‘Hot Chocolate’ season. We get the supersized Hot Chocolate mix from Costco, a bunch of super secret ingredients, and then prepare ourselves for some of the best drinks around town.
Want to join our happy group, sitting around the table sipping our cocoa together? Here’s what you do:
First: get any generic mix. That’s not the special part…it’s what you put into it that makes the difference.
Second: if you are really wanting something indulgent, heat up a cupful of milk with a bite size dove chocolate at the bottom. Heat, mix, and voila! Fancy hot cocoa.
Third: Add a layer of marshmallows.
Fourth: Add a scattering of chocolate chips (this is The Naturalist’s idea).
Fifth: Spray a generous amount of whipped cream from a can into your mouth.
Sixth: Spray a generous amount of whipped cream from a can into the cup of cocoa.
Seventh: Sprinkle with colored sugar crystals (this is The Golfer’s idea.)
Eighth: Drop in a peppermint stick (this is my idea).Yum.
Its the perfect thing to have first thing in the morning, or after a brisk walk outside to watch the sun set.
