Hot Cocoa Recipe, Gift Tags, Jingle Bells, and Coloring Page

2012 November 12

From Our Home To Yours


It’s that time of year when the weather is getting colder and in some places its even snowing. It’s also right about now I start looking for food gifts to make and give to family and friends during the holiday season.

My daughter and I came up with this recipe for rich and creamy hot cocoa a couple of years ago. The recipe makes a big batch, so its perfect to make for gift giving or large gatherings.

We also love listening to holiday music while we are cooking in the kitchen, and
Jingle Bells is one of our favorite festive songs.

Here is a clip of  Billy Gorilly’s Piano version of Jingle Bells.

    Whoa. That’s a serious recipe. Way bigger than just putting the hot cholocate pouch in the hot water, haha. Maybe I’ll see if I can give it to my wife to whip up for me. 🙂 Got here from the Blog Hop!

      Hi TB, Thanks for stopping by my blog. It does make a lot of cocoa mix. I gave it away as part of gift baskets; everyone said they loved it.
