Hot Chocolate Delight!

Hot Chocolate Delight!

Is there anything more fun in the wintertime than coming in after an afternoon of fun in the snow and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa?  It is definitely something we look forward to . . . especially if we are hosting family or close friends.  We have a delicious hot chocolate recipe we use that I would like to share.  Offering an assortment of fun additives to your cocoa makes it even more memorable!  You may also want to consider serving the hot chocolate outside.  A Lifetime adjustable-height folding table makes set-up quick and easy whether you are setting it up inside or out.  Most of us don’t have a thermal Airpot dispenser kicking around the house, so a large thermos or a crock-pot set to low will make sure that your cocoa will still stay warm so you won’t have to miss out on that last sled run down the hill. 

Creamy Hot Chocolate  

1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 gallon chocolate milk
½ pint whipping cream

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon in a large stockpot.  Add milk.  Use an electric hand mixer to make it frothy.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently to serving temperature.  Do not boil.  (The whipping cream is to bring the milk to whole milk.  If it happens to be whole milk, omit cream.)  Also, if you choose to offer an assortment of mix-ins with your hot chocolate, I would consider cutting back or eliminating the cinnamon.

Mix in ideas: whipped cream, crushed peppermint candy, chocolate shavings, crushed toffee bar, flavored creamers, marshmallows, chocolate-dipped marshmallows, candy canes, red hot candies, etc.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

The Winner of Our Biggest Giveaway of the Year is….
Wow! When we announced we were hosting our biggest giveaway of the year,your entries started rolling in fast! Not only did we give away our BIGGEST type of product we make, we also had the biggestnumber of entries to date. We asked you to simply tell us how you would use a Lifetime shed and, boy, did we get an earful. Lawn and gardenequipmenttopped the list as the most popular items people planned to keep in a Lifetime shed. However,storing outdoor toys and bikes, garage stuff and tools, extrakids' clothes, and holiday decorations were also frequently mentioned. We even had some creative plans including to use the shed for a workshop, a "man cave", a playhouse, storing boat equipment, storing pool equipment,hiding a water tank, and keeping firewood dry. Clearly, the uses for a Lifetime shed are limited only to your imaginatio...
How My Blog Posts Unfold
When Lifetime started this blognearly threeyears ago, it was with the intention of showing you how we all incorporate Lifetime products into our everyday lives. Today, this blog has grown into so much more. But, every once in a while, I still like to share just the normal, everyday stories about using Lifetime products.Sometimes I really have to think, ponder, and put on my creative hat to come up with my lifestyle blog post ideas. Other times, they just unfold right before my eyes - literally. Look at these photos. You probably think I purposely set up my Lifetime Card Table and Chairs just for a photo op. Nope. The other day I went to the grocery store while my husband stayed home with the kiddos. When I pulled in the driveway, I was welcomed by this absolute cutest scene adorning my sidewalk. It was a beautiful, sunny Fal...
Rich Snippets: Coming Soon to a Search Engine Near You!
Search engines not only display content, they spider web pages, gathering information from your pages, then re-work all that information into a listing that searchers see when they're looking for stuff -- and the cycle is complete. When a person goes to a search engine they have a good idea of what theyre looking for (otherwise they'll be on StumbleUpon, right?). With millions of search results being found and displayed, sometimes it's hard for people to find what they're looking for among all those results. To help combat that, Google is trying to show searchers more information about their search results. Information about information? That sounds a lot like meta-data! Yes, yes it does! Here at Lifetime, we're starting to roll out web pages that will take advantage of Google's "Rich Snippits" to get more information...
