The gentle ting, ting, ting of the angel chimes and the hiss and spit of a log fire……..the heat making me drowsy, whilst carols play in the background……the smell of hot wax mingles with spiced mince pies baking in the oven. A cold wind howls outside and the overwhelming feeling of gathering the family in under one roof is overwhelming ~ if only we were all together for Christmas this year.
Mulled wine or hot chocolate? I feel like a hot and comforting drink…..laced with cinnamon and topped off with a mob cap of whipped cream…..so hot chocolate it is then. This recipe is the last in my Trio of Festive Beverages and part of my Gifts in a Jar series…..a real hug in a mug.
Christmas Eve Hot Chocolate
4 tea cups dried milk powder
½ tea cup caster sugar
½ tea cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine all the ingredients together and store in an attractive jar or container. Add a label to say:
“Add 2 to 3 tablespoons to hot but not boiling water, mix well and add sugar to taste. Whipped cream and a tot of brandy can be added for a festive touch!”
That’s all for today, see you later with more Advent treats……
