Disclosure: I received some really cool items from Oriental Trading to facilitate this post.

Winter is quickly approaching, and for some, snow is already falling.

I love nothing more in the cooler weather than to curl up on the couch in front of the fire surrounded by the people I love, drink hot chocolate, and watch a movie. But, give everyone a treat and kick up movie night a notch with these ideas.

My winter hot chocolate recipe is pretty simple.

I heat 50/50 2% reduced fat milk with half & half on the stove (enough per cup), stirring so that a skin doesn't form on top.

Tip: if you have oversized mugs (like we do), fill it with water, and then pour it into a measuring jug to determine how much milk and half & half you need to heat.

In a mug I add a couple of tablespoons of hot cocoa mix (or strawberry Nesquick for my daughter who doesn't like milk chocolate), with 2 teaspoons of sugar, and then pour the warm milk over the top.

I then top with mini marshmallows and whipped cream.

As you can see they are quite large, but that didn't stop a certain little girl from asking for a second pink 'hot chocolate'.

Don't forget to put out some festive wooden stirrers (which are just wood stirrers with wood snow flakes glued to the top of each), extra marshmallows, and fill a jug with hot chocolate for anyone who wants refills.
