It may be cold outside, but our home is full of love and warmth.

Because I'm thrilled to say that just a few short weeks ago ... 7 weeks ago yesterday, to be exact ... my husband and I welcomed a 5-year-old little girl into our family!!


Our homemade hot chocolate mix recipe is super easy to make.  It's based on the homemade hot chocolate mix my Mom used to make for me when I was growing up.

In those short 7 weeks, Little Miss H has already filled our home and our hearts with love.  Sure, life is way crazier, free time is non-existent, and a quiet house is something from a by-gone era ... but amazing bear-hugs are way more plentiful!

Would you like to know two of Little Miss H's loves?

Chocolate.  And helping me out in the kitchen.  A girl truly after my heart, right there!  

So of course, we had to combine those two loves ... and whip up a batch of homemade Hot Chocolate Mix together.

And of course, we've had to enjoy several mugfuls together, too!

Little Miss H enjoys hers best with marshmallows.  And I must admit, I do, too.

Our homemade hot chocolate mix recipe is super easy to make.  It's based on the homemade hot chocolate mix my Mom used to make for me when I was growing up.

At the start of every winter, Mom would make a huge batch of mix and store it in a big jar in our cupboard.  On countless days throughout the winter, we'd enjoy delicious mugfuls of hot chocolate after playing for hours on-end out in the cold Vermont snow.  There was just nothing better to thaw you out from that cold.

Now I feel as though I'm passing the hot chocolate love down to the next generation.  And that warms my heart ... almost as much as a big-old bear hug from Little Miss H.

To whip up a batch, simply place chocolate milk powder in a large container.  Then add instant nonfat dry milk, cocoa, confectioners' sugar, and coffee creamer.

Next, shake it up all up until it's well combined.  For our batch, the shaking was a job that Little Miss H took on ...
