Who doesn’t love a cup of warm hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day? Our most favorite winter beverage is easier than ever to make from scratch right in your kitchen. And trust us, this will taste far better than any store bought mix. Plus, it is SO easy! So easy, you probably already have all the ingredients in your home! Let’s get started!

Supplies:

  1. 3-3.5 cups of sugar
  2. 1.5 tablespoons of salt
  3. 2 1/4 cups of cocoa powder
  4. Milk per serving
  5. Your favorite mug
  6. Friends to share it with ūüôā

We used a big mason jar to store our mix in.

Start by adding in a cup of sugar. Then a cup of cocoa. Then, your next cup of sugar and so on. We made a pattern with the cups of sugar and cocoa just for looks, however you can just dump it all in together if you’d like.

Next comes the salt.

And now for the marshmallows to top it off!

If you want a peppermint spin to it, simply drop one into your mixture.

Mix the ingredients together. Scoop 1.5 spoon fulls into a cup of milk. Warm the milk on the stovetop or in the microwave. Enjoy!

Toasted Coconut Crunch Granola

It’s no secret that we LOVE coconut. Add some excitement to morning routine with our Toasted Coconut Crunch Granola. Perfect on top of oatmeal, smoothie bowls and yogurt parfaits or on it’s own with some coconut milk. We can’t get enough!

Ingredients:
3 C. Rolled Oats (not instant)
1/3 C Honey
1/4 C Coconut Oil (melted)
1 C Shredded Coconut (preferably fresh, but dried works too)

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 C Chopped Nuts or Seeds

Directions
1) Preheat oven to 350¬įF. Mix the rolled oats, shredded coconut and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the coconut oil, honey and vanilla. Pour this wet mixture into the¬†dry mixture of oats until everything is coated.


2) Spread mixture evenly onto a large baking sheet and place on the middle rack of your oven. Bake for 20 minutes, stir and bake some more until golden brown (usually 5-15 minutes more). You’ll want to keep watch of your precious granola as the coconut can burn easily!

3) By now, your kitchen is probably hugging you with the nutty smell of toasted coconut and warm scent of vanilla. Cool the granola to room temperature and stir occasionally. As it cools, this is when the crunch gets crunchier. Yummy!

 

4) Store the cooled mixture in a container for up to 2 weeks, but we doubt it’ll stick around for¬†that long once you’ve taste it.
