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.

Scrapping old Memories; Making New
Scrapbooking for 3 days straight maysound like a weird form of torture... but even after the paper cuts, late nights, and reeeeally early mornings,I look forward toittwice a year. My familys crazy little tradition is called "Scrapbook Weekend". If youre anything like me; you have a busy schedule, a suffering photo album, talkative friends and family, and an endlessappetite for good cooking. Scrapbook Weekend givesme the chance to learn new layouts, trade materials, or just catch-up on all my photos. Twice a year, all my aunts and cousins (about 18-20 people total) drive to my moms house with cars full photos, paper supplies, and the fixin's for some great food. We load all the food in the fridge, spread out our cutters, paper, pictures and embellishments on about 6 or 7 Lifetime tables, and camp out for 3 days stacking page...

Dear Family – a Letter from Dad
Bill Cosby had it right. Yes, many of us dads are the fun ones, the jokesters, and the dress up dolls. There are fathers all over the world who get things they cant use and . . . dont want. With Fathers Day coming up I wanted to offer some suggestions for things that Dad actually wants: Want Deck Box. Give dad a Lifetime Deck Box so he has somewhere to quickly put away all of the kids toys left on the lawn. Keep them safe so he doesn't hit them with the lawn mower anymore. So, really . . . its a gift that keeps giving. Dont Want Another light-up, pink, paisley, or superhero tie. Its just another burp rag for the baby to spit up on.
