Nothing Like Hot Chocolate & Homemade Marshmallows


Today was the perfect day to relax, take leisurely baths, play with gifts, and eat leftovers. We just took it easy, came down slowly from the holiday high, and had the same friends over for leftovers that were here yesterday for Christmas dinner. In the late afternoon, Quin & I needed a cocoa break. I am a bit of a cocoa snob, and have been known to make it from scratch with no powdered anything involved. But, I bought a bunch of fair trade organic Cocoa Camino products from friends who were selling them for fund raising, and one of the items was Instant DARK Hot Chocolate Mix! I have been dying to try it and since we had a few homemade marshmallows we made last weekend we needed to eat, we dove right in. The mix was delicious with organic milk, heavenly to say the least. I can't wait to do it again tomorrow. We hope you had a heavenly hot chocolate sort of day...

Shhhh, don't tell anyone, we had it again today, and I made a really big one and ate it too close to dinner, and spoiled my appetite! My three year old was still able to eat dinner, she can always eat, and usually so can I, but I used too many marshmallows :)

Hi K! Yes, you SHOULD make that today, although I hear you have been having rain not snow. Andre is on Ottawa right now, for his grandma's funeral :( He left last night and will be back tonight... How were your holidays?
