Hot Cocoa Season arrived today in case you werenâ€™t aware. It is the 1st of December and a gentle snow is washing over the landscape. Christmas music is everywhere on the radio and nothing sounds as good as fixing a cup of hot cocoa and reading a good book. Sure, Iâ€™ve been drinking hot cocoa since the first chill hit the air in October, but that didnâ€™t really count. The conditions must be just right for the official Hot Cocoa Season to begin. For one thing, there needs to be snow on the ground for the kids to play in. They will need a cup of hot chocolate to warm up with when they come back in the house dripping slush and shedding their layers of winter clothing.
I need to head out to the store today and pick up some more cocoa mix. I already went through my current supply. I suppose I could try out some different recipes for making your own cocoa mix that I have found on the internet. I am thinking about trying Lauraâ€™s Hot Cocoa Mix. Head on over to their site and check it out, maybe you will try it too.
Oh, donâ€™t forget â€“ if you truly want to celebrate opening day of Hot Cocoa Season you had better make sure you have a good supply of marshmallows and home baked cookies :)
