St Nicholas Hot Chocolate

Just thinking about the fact that Advent is around the corner is really starting to get me moving on planning and preparation and then I thought about this post I had not posted last year on the Hot Chocolate we make especially for St Nicholas Day but also for other festive occasions as well.

I would like to share it with you now as you start your own Advent planning. Perhaps make up a jug while you sit down and do that planning!

This was before we went can sugar free but you can substitute as shown below if you wish!

St Nicholas Hot Chocolate~
This is our version of homemade hot chocolate made thus~
In a jug place :
Approx 6 heaped dessertspoons of instant full cream milk powder (we don't like skim)
Approx 8 heaped dessertspoons of Cadbury Drinking chocolate
(for the sugar free version use 3 heaped tablespoons of natural organic cacao powder - this is incredibly powerful stuff and probably 5 tablespoons of rapadura, panela or coconut sugar)
Add boiling water to 3/4 full of the jug and stir
add milk to fill the jug up

Then to make it St Nicholas Hot Chocolate we add marshmallows and a peppermint stick.
If you look to the left you can see Arwen reaching for the peppermint sticks .......again!

Blessings to you and your homes,
