I thought the snowflake coaster really took this gift from cute to FABULOUS!  I just thought it made it a more “complete” gift.  And those Frosted Finishes Embellishments are the bling that really made it pop!

Want the recipe for the cocoa?

CONNIE’S GOURMET HOT COCOA

  • (1) Can of store brand Hot Cocoa Mix (don’t buy the good stuff)
  • (1) Small box of Chocolate or Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding Mix

Pour the hot cocoa mix into a large bowl.  Add the pudding and mix well.  The pudding just slightly thickens the hot cocoa and brings out more chocolate flavor.  Measure according to the directions on hot cocoa can.

CHOCOLATE COVERED

CHERRY HOT COCOA

  • (1) Can of store brand Hot Cocoa Mix (don’t buy the good stuff)
  • (1) Small box of Chocolate or Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding Mix
  • (1) packet Cherry Kool-Aid
  • 1/2 cup sugar

In a large bowl, mix the sugar, Kool-Aid, and pudding; mix well.  Add the can of hot cocoa mix and mix again.  Measure according to the directions on hot cocoa can.  You can use any flavor of Kool-Aid – Orange and Strawberry are good too!  If you want more “cherry” flavor, double the sugar and use 2 packages of Kool-Aid.

The best part about this cocoa is that you can make a big batch for under $3.00 and trust me when I tell you… your friends will think this is Godiva Hot cocoa!  It’s that rich and that good!

If you try my cocoa, leave me a comment and tell me what you think!  I will have the video for this project and supply list posted tomorrow so be sure to check back!

Also, just want to say THANK YOU for allowing me the Thanksgiving weekend off.  I had a GREAT week with out-of-state family and WAY too much food but OOOHHHH it was so good!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving as well.  It’s back to work and I have LOTS of cool things planned for the coming weeks!  Wahoo!

Have a WONDERFUL day, my friends!
