The best part of waking up is hot chocolate in my cup. Do you remember a commercial with a similar slogan? Yea, that’s good too, but there is nothing like the sweet taste of chocolate. Every year we buy boxes and boxes of different mixes…mini marshmallows, caramel flavored, dark chocolate. There are tons.
Well, this year I’m changing it up. One of the items on my Fall Food Bucket List is making my own hot chocolates from scratch. I did finally create a homemade mix and wanted to enjoy it with my kiddies. But what goes better with hot chocolate than books. So I picked up a few selections from Amazon and surprised the littles with a sweet night snuggled on the couch.
