We have been reading books lately in which the characters come in from the cold and have hot chocolate and cookies to warm up. So of course Kiki has started asking for that when she comes in from playing outside.
This time I obliged with warm chocolate (hot chocolate is too hot) and pumpkin bread.
I rarely have on hand the instant hot chocolate mix so I make ours from scratch because I will always have those ingredients on hand. For those who are interested in the hot chocolate recipe:
Mix and melt together 1-2 Tbsp of white sugar, 1 Tbsp of cocoa, and 2 Tbsp of water. Add a cup of milk and heat to desired temperature. Optional is to add a tsp of vanilla extract.
