Almost every night for the last few weeks, I have indulged in a cup of sweet hot chocolate. I know…if I keep this up throughout the winter, I am going to be the size of Texas! And that won’t be so sweet.
But one night, while I was making my usual cup of cocoa, I started to wonder what was in the store bought mix I was using. After reading the ingredients, I was kinda shocked. It seems simple enough to make it naturally. I bet I could do that. And, if I am going to make a huge mix, why not go the extra mile and make a hot chocolate station with all the goodies.
So friends, that’s just what I did…
cup with hot water or milk. Top with your favorite fixin’.
Now that we have discussed how to make the sweet stuff, let me share the details of my decorations. When I was deciding how to make my labels I wanted something Christmas themed, but neutral as well. That way, I can have the station out all winter. And for my sign, I chose the lyrics from a famous winter song.

One last picture, a little holiday-ified. (yes, I totally just made up that word!)
Now, please excuse me. I must go and enjoy my nightly drink. But, before I go…I have to ask…what’s your favorite hot drink this time of year?
