Happy National Cocoa Day!

Yep.  It's a real thing.  National Cocoa Day. As events would have it, it was just the two little ones and I tonight.  And what better thing to do then have some hot chocolate?  But you can't have just hot chocolate for dinner.  Sadly.  So we decided some fish and chips were in order!


Seriously, every time I get the camera out, this is the smile she gives me!  I can't get her to open her eyes...at least it's probably just a phase ;)


At least we ended up with some tasty, homemade fries!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate


  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream/heavy cream
  • 6 tbs unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tbs peppermint extract
  • Shaved chocolate or crushed candy cane for garnish
  1. Combine all ingredients in saucepan on low heat, stir until all the cocoa is dissolved.
  2. Pour into cups, top with whipped cream (home made is the best!), Garnish with something fun and enjoy!

Oh look...she's closing her eyes ;)
