Make. This. Today. {homemade cocoa}

It's Friday! Yippee Kai Yay! Happy dance. Fist pump. Woot woot!

Okay, moving on.

I know I've already posted about the amazing homemade hot cocoa & marshmallow recipes I ran across last year, but ya know what? I'm gonna post about it again. In fact, I'll probably post about it every single time the holidays roll around, because it is just that awesome. It would be an absolute crime if someone missed the memo on this stuff.

I'm only going to tell you once.

Make. This. Today.

HERE is the recipe for the hot cocoa
HERE is the recipe for the marshmallows
And HERE is where I posted about it last Christmas.

There's something really gratifying about making your very own homemade marshmallows. It's not a difficult process at all, but I'm tellin' ya-- you'll feel so accomplished. The next time you pass the bags of marshmallow in the grocery store, you'll totally roll your eyes, turn your nose up, & think to yourself, "I am so cool & my marshmallows are so much better than you." Trust me. I strut around for days after I make em'. No lie.

And please, for the love of all things merry, make some hot cocoa stirrers to swirl around in that rich, chocolatey, frothy, goodness. And while you're at it, go ahead & make em' super adorable, too.

**Notes from my kitchen--Peppermint sticks are from Hobby Lobby. I searched high & low & that was the only place I could find them. 

On melting white chocolate {it's not as easy as one might think}, follow these instructions. I used the microwave version & my chocolate turned out perfect.

Okay, I fibbed. I am going to say it more than once.

Make. This. Today.

Your weekend will be fabulous if you do!
