We are finally getting our first proper snowstorm of the winter and the boys are super excited.  Snow day! 

This hot cocoa is the number one thing that the kids request when they go outside for a snow day in the wintertime. 

 

This is another recipe where it is easy to make a large batch and store the rest in the fridge for another day (or one hour later when you decide that you want another cup of steaming awesomeness!). 

 

Joe and I actually prefer to combine the hot cocoa with equal part coffee for a sort of homemade mocha pick-me-up.  In fact, I am enjoying a mug of it right now.  Yum…..

 

As with the Cinnamon Ginger Comfort Tea, this recipe contains cinnamon, ginger, and honey – all of which are super healthy for your immune system.  

[However, due to the risk of botulism, never give honey to a child under the age of one.]

  1. Maria, I usually put cinnamon in my coffee, but this afternoon, after reading your blog, I added some cocoa and ginger to my cup (we usually don’t have milk). It was a nice change, so thanks for the idea. There’s nothing better than warming up  with a hot beverage and a good book on a snow day…or with a hot beverage and three adorable boys as in your case. I love your snowy pics, too!
