This hot cocoa station sits on my kitchen counter and my boys and all their friends love it! Nothing beats a warm cup of hot chocolate on a cold winters day! The fact that is not as cold here in our first Tennessee winter has not really affected their hot cocoa habit much:) My boys like to top it with marshmellows and a peppermint candy! I have to admit that this is Steven’s Hot Cocoa pictured,because I have a lot of it in my food storage room. But, to make your own, I wanted to share my Grandma’s Hot Chocolate mix recipe with you. It is great…just like everything that sweet woman makes!
*Also a great gift idea to make with your kids for their friends:
put about a 1/2 cup in a sandwich bag sprinkle on chocolate chips and marshmellows (you could even throw in a peppermint ball or two) tie with a cute ribbon and a little Merry Christmas tag!
