Hot Chocolate

Seriously, though, who doesn’t love hot chocolate? I mean, the whole concept of hot cocoa, next to the fire place, with cookies just screams Christmas!

December 12 was National Cocoa Day. I, therefore, made pancakes….

Marshmallows are a classic hot chocolate topper, so I tried adding a few mini marshmallows to the pancakes and found that the mallows melted when you flip them. SO, out came the fluff! I topped these chocolatey pancakes with some fluff, that melted over the cakes and added the perfect sweetness!

Heck! Hot Chocolate is so good, Tom Hanks sings a song about it!

Hope that made you smile  🙂
