Baby It's Cold Outside...

Actually it's 85 degrees here in Florida, but with the air conditioning turned down to 60 degrees it should be quite frosty in here soon enough.

When it's cold, I love to cuddle up with a cup of hot cocoa and my man.  Our kids are so grossed out when Pete and I cuddle, smooch, and stuff.  I love watching their faces contort into "oh gross" expressions! Ha!  Take that you hooligans!

To make all that cuddle time a little more bearable for the monkeys, we have started a new tradition - The Hot Cocoa Bar!

In addition to our homemade hot cocoa mix, we like to set out a variety of toppings to garnish, embellish and lavish our cocoa with.

Salted caramel dark chocolates and cookies to sip and dip with.

Coconut, chocolate chips, peppermint bits to season the cocoa nicely.

A dollop of homemade whipped cream, Dolce de Leche, and chocolate sauce to drizzle on top.

The most amazing cup of cocoa ever.
There you have it!  The Hot Cocoa Bar!  It can be personalized to fit your family's palate.  Just don't forget mounds of marshmallows and lots of smooches, hugs and cuddles with your loves.  This would be perfect for Valentine's Day, or tonight, or right now.
