The Real Reason Kids Love Snow

I've come to the conclusion that the kids (all 3 of mine pictured below) don't go outside to play in the snow because of the actual's because mommy makes the best hot chocolate in the whole world and I'm ok with that :)

The secret? Hershey bars melted slowly into the milk and hot chocolate mix over the stove.  I swear, makes all the difference in the world.  P.S. Don't forget the whipped cream (marshmellows are for the birds)!



  1. Yum! I've always made my mix with semi-sweet chocolate chips/chunks thrown in (but I do cheat and throw everything into the CocoMotion...I'm too impatient to watch it over the stove!). Do you have a from-scratch mix you use? I stole the recipe from Real Simple and haven't found another I like better...yet :)

  2. oh wow!! This looks so yummy and seeing your man with whipped cream on his mustache makes me laugh!
