From hence forth this week shall be known as hot chocolate week! Hip hip hooray! As I run around the house decorating for Christmas, there are two things that MUST be present.
Matt only appreciates one of these things, and it's not the music! Too bad for him. While the tree is being trimmed either an old classic Christmas movie must be on, or the music. I don't care which one it is, but it has to be one. It's not an option. Not even a little bit.
This hot chocolate recipe is perfect for having on hand when the feeling strikes. It is also great as a gift. MiMi, Jax and I made a few batches the other day and put it in jars. That way each of my siblings can have some homemade hot chocolate as they get their houses ready for Christmas as well!
The cocoa only takes a minute or two to make. A quick buzz in the food processor and you are ready to package it! When it is time to enjoy it, all you have to do is measure out a few tablespoons full and add boiling water. We did the taste tester mug with the Keurig, just put the cocoa mix in the cup and add the hot water. Jax was the official taste tester and he approved!
