A little hot cocoa

Pin It Now!


Sometimes it's the little things that you don't normally do everyday that can make you happy!  I don't remember the last time I had hot cocoa with whipped cream on it but for some reason last Saturday morning I just had a craving for it!  Occasionally at work I will have the instant hot chocolate in the packets that you add hot water to but I much prefer to make it with unsweetened cocoa and add my own sugar and real milk and real vanilla!  I also sprinkle some cinnamon in the dry mixture before I stir int he milk! It's so yummy!

I'm usually a coffee drinker but it's been so cold here I think that must be the reason I had a craving for hot cocoa! I hope you are all staying warm!

Cindy- a perfect warm up to a cold day. The cup is very pretty. Is it old? What pattern??

I love the idea of adding vanilla, and the sprinkles on top are GREAT! I'm going to give it a try. I LOVE hot chocolate.
Happy Holidays!

Hot cocoa is so comforting this time of year. Next time I make I'm going to use your tip and put some cinnamon in the mix : )
Love your mug too ♥
