Well, if winter hadn’t made her presence known before, she sure has now! Am I right? It is downright chilly out there and all that cool air has me craving hot cocoa…but not just any hot cocoa. No, no. I’m talking about a fun twist on traditional hot chocolate. Behold…Strawberry hot chocolate! Not only is this mix the perfect treat to whip up for your family on a cold winter’s day, but it makes for a fun Valentine’s Day gift too! Pair that with a fun travel mug and maybe a gift card to your kiddo’s teacher’s favorite java joint for a day when she doesn’t want to make something herself and you have yourself a teacher Valentine!
Frankly, any hot chocolate lovin’ soul would be thrilled to receive this on heart day. At least this girl would! Quick, someone tell my Valentine. I jest. Something tells me he’s not going the DIY route. Haha!
¼ cup Hot Chocolate Mix
¼ cup Strawberry Milk Mix
¼ cup Vanilla White Chocolate Chips
Layer all ingredients together in a small treat bag starting with the hot chocolate mix, add the strawberry milk mix on top of that, and finally add the vanilla chips to the very top. Tie the bag closed with a ribbon and give as a gift. Each bag makes 2 to 3 cups of Strawberry Hot Chocolate.
To make your hot chocolate simply shake the bag so all of the ingredients come together and add half or 1/3 of the bag to a mug filled with hot milk. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Add whipped cream on the top if desired.
That’s all there is to it! Enjoy and stay warm lovelies! And if warm drinks are your jam, check out this fun DIY peppermint latte. Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean that our peppermint drinks have to be!
