Christmas Countdown 2012: Day 8

Yesterday we made peppermint marshmallows so tonight we put them to good use in our cocoa. It was cocoa and movie night!
Our cocoa mix is ridiculously easy, all it is is unsweetened cocoa and sugar with a pinch of salt (if desired) we use about 1-2 tbsp with a cup of warm milk and voila! Hot cocoa without all the added junk of whatever is in prepackaged cocoa.
These are the girls' cocoa mugs, I picked them up last year at Walmart for a few bucks. I just love the Santa but he is a bit hard to drink out of.
The best thing about homemade marshmallows is how they melt. They leave a frothy sweet coating on the top of the cocoa, it is so delicious!
The girls drinking their cocoa and watching Home Alone for the first time. They didn't really get into it until the very end when all the good stuff happens, maybe in a few more years...
Now on to the joke
What do you get when you cross a snowman and a vampire?


  1. I may have to try this. Marshmallow always gave me a horrible tummy ache as a kid so I have never been one for hot cocoa. Maybe homemade ones will be easy on my belly. LOL.

    1. Try them Jiza! The peppermint taste is so good, maybe it'll help keep the tummy aching away
