this is a little post i put together a couple weeks ago for Lacee over at mommas like me.& i just wanted to share with all of you as I know everyone is getting ready or has already started to bake & put things together for the holidays. enjoy!
i dont know about all of you, but with the holiday season approaching i know i am looking for creative things to be putting out for this years christmas party. i found this idea the other day & thought that this would be perfect – so here it is a lil recipe for entertaining this holiday season.
i love a good warm mug of hot chocolate this time of year & that is exactly why i wanted to share this with you today:
home-made scrumptious hot chocolate & white-chocolate peppermint marshmallow dippers.
white-chocolate peppermint marshmallow dippers.
1 package marshmallows
1 container sprinkles
1 bag of melting chocolate or chocolate chips
15 peppermint sticks
melt the chocolate then dip the peppermint stick into the chocolate & stick into the marshmallow. set aside to dry. after it is dry dip the marshmallows in chocolate & roll the end of the marshmallow in the sprinkles.
you can then either use these as hot chocolate stirrers or eat them all by themselves. I personally love them melted into my hot chocolate :) the peppermint taste so good with the warm hot chocolate :)
home-made scrumptious hot chocolate
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. water
1 c. milk
a bit of vanilla
Combine cocoa, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Heat it on low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the paste from sticking to the pan. After about 1 to 2 minutes, add milk and vanilla. Mix it all together until it reaches your preferred temperature & bam! you have an amazing cup of hot chocolatey deliciousness.
hope you all enjoy & let me know if you try this out. It is really simple & tasty!
