Need a last minute gift? Homemade hot chocolate mix is fast, easy and delicious. I was inspired by my friend, Elise, who brought the mix to our bookclub secret santa exchange.
You can find the hot chocolate recipe at citrus blog. Package it up in a cute jar with ribbon and a label and you're good to go. :)
You can't have hot chocolate without marshmallows, and the homemade variety are SO good! I used a recipe from Your Heart Out (I've had the post saved in my bloglines for over a year - I wish I hadn't taken so long to try it out!). I omitted the candy canes because I forgot to buy them at the store. Instead I added clear sanding sugar to add a bit of sparkle, and loved it because it looks a lot like snow.
Makes a perfect gift for the hot chocolate-lover in your life, don't you think?
My sweet boy let me hang out in the kitchen all afternoon while he napped. Looks like he had sweet dreams ...
