Saturday Morning Roundup – Hot Chocolate

Whether you live in the frozen tundra or in the hot desert or somewhere in between, when it comes to winter time everyone enjoys a little hot chocolate.

There are so many great ways to make your hot chocolate special. You can make your own marshmallows, cook it slowly, bake it, freeze it, and of course… you can drink it!

It’s that lovely combination of sweet chocolate and milk that can warm you to the bone on a chilly night. So I went ahead and gathered a bunch of fun ways to mix up your cocoa this year! Be sure to click on the links to find the full recipes!

It was 84 degrees here on Black Friday, so instead of bundling up in cute scarfs and mittens I was wearing short sleeves and flip flops. This Frozen Hot Chocolate from Dine and Dish has my name written all over it.

    After walking home from school each day, my kids ask for a mug of hot chocolate. I need to surprise them with one of these variations!
