The Perfect Hot Chocolate

Now that the winter season is upon us, I wanted to share my recipe for the perfect hot chocolate. This is great for those cold nights alone or for a hot chocolate bar at a holiday party. I had a friend comment on how this hot chocolate "looked like something you would pay $3 at some fancy cafe." I consider that a win. I know that when I was a kid, I always felt like I was kinda missing out on a "special drink" at holiday parties. All the adults would be drinking alcoholic drinks and the kids didn't have much variety beyond juice. Not only is hot chocolate a festive and exciting alternative, creating a make-it-yourself hot chocolate bar will also entertain the young ones.

Here is what I used:

1 packet of Starbucks hot chocolate per cup (This makes a large cup in my opinion and can be shared)
1 cup of milk per packet of Starbucks hot chocolate 
1 can of whipped cream
1 packet of marshmallows
peppermint sticks

How to Make It:

Heat the milk in the microwave until hot. Then add the hot chocolate mix. Stir. Get crazy with the toppings!

I am working on my own special recipe for the hot chocolate and will post it as soon as it is ready. Until then you guys can enjoy this one.
