And because I like doing cute fun things I made some peppermint marshmallows. Now if I were really good I would have made marshmallows but I didn't and this was a fun and pretty alternative.
- marshmallows I used big ones
- chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
- candy canes
- about a table spoon of oil to mix into chocolate if you want it soft
Pretty simple really, dip your marshmallows into chocolate then into peppermint pieces. Place upright to set up. I put them into a pretty dish along with plain one's so people could choose. It was fun!
Homemade Hot chocolate
(In a crock pot, and way better than a mix! YUMMY YUMMY!)
recipe courtesy of MrsHappyHomemaker.com
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 6 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups of milk chocolate chips
Stir together the whipping cream, milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips in a crockpot.
Cover and cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot and chocolate chips are melted. Stir again before serving. Garnish as desired.
Ok, she also said to replace a 1/2 cup cream with sweetened condensed milk to make it even richer! Woah! PRINTABLE
