Hot drinks for cold nights!

Eventhough I only have a miniscule role to play, I love being a part of the blogging community. How amazing is it that you get to connect with all these awsome and inspirational people from all over the world and be allowed to take a peek into their lives? It's really an endless ocean of information and inspiration that I just love to dive into. I have alot of different blogs on my readinglist and whenever I find a spare minute I love catching up on them. A little while ago I read a post about homemade chocolatemix here and I really fell in love with the idea. It was love at first sight but unfortunately the recipe was't really me. So I decided to throw in the stuff I like and make my own hot chocolatemix! I love how it turned out, I've already had 3 cups! :)

Here's what I used to make it. I used a high quality organic cacoa by Australian Homemade (but you can use any high quality brand) a low fat powdered milk, mini marshmallows, coffee creamer, chocolate fondue, ground cinnamon, jars, a bow and a tag (which you can find here).
Adding a tag comes in handy if you are planning to share your chocolate love with others.

I used mini marshmallows in different colors, which gives it such a playful look! I used glass jars so you can really see the sweet little pop of color it gives. So cute!

The recipe
8 tablespoons of low fat powdered milk
4 tablespoons of high-quality cocao
2 tablespoons of coffee creamer
2 tablespoons of chocolate fondue chips
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons of mini marshmallows

I didn't add any sugar to the recipe because the marshmallows already add some sweetness to the drink and I didn't want to make it unnecessary unhealthy. But if you happen to have a sweet tooth, you can throw two teaspoons of sugar into the mixture! :) Mix all the ingredients together (except the mini marshmallows, you add those later) and you have your hot chocolatemix. You can chop up the chocolate chips, but I like the fact that it doesn't look like a perfect fine mixture. Its homemade and it's allowed to look the part! The chocolate fondue chips are made to melt easily, so it's not really necassary to chop them up anyway. Throw 3 tablespoons of mixture into a cup, poor hot water on it and stir well. This batch should be enough for about 5 cups. Finish it off by throwing a tablespoon of mini marshmallows on top. Voilá and enjoy!
