Today in the late afternoon there was a pretty bad thunderstorm. It was one of those storms where the lighting bolts are defined and the roaring thunder makes you say "oh my" (at least I say that). The storm started when I was at work and continued while I picked up my brother from basketball camp and headed home. When we got settled in at my house, it seemed only natural that we enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. It was the perfect weather for this warm treat.
I love hot chocolate. It is one of my favorite things about winter. There is nothing I love more during the cold months than cuddling up by a fire and enjoying a warm cup of hot chocolate, and of course it's a bonus to have mini marshmallows too.
This past winter I got these awesome mugs, the hug mug, made by Max Brenner. They are so much fun. I also used his hot chocolate mix and marshmallows. Yummy!
