This has been a strange winter for us. We just moved to the state that claims to have “The Greatest Snow on Earth” and yet we have had barely any snow. So instead of making snowmen outside, we are making marshmallow snowman hot chocolate! This is the perfect way to warm up on a cold snowy (or not so snowy) day. Marshmallow Snowman Hot Chocolate Everyday after school my boys come running through the door looking for something to snack on. On cold days, they go straight for the hot chocolate. We decided to mix things up a bit and add some marshmallow snowmen. My boys think it is so funny to watch them as they melt away to nothing. […]

When you are living with 4 boys, you get used to having some really strange requests for their birthday. Halloween has always been my favorite time to make fun food creations with my boys so when my son requested an Eyeball Cake for his birthday, we needed something spooky-fun to take to his class at school as well. These Eyeball Donuts made the cut and were the perfect and easy Halloween treat. Eyeball Donuts We love Halloween around here! My youngest boys have been busy decorating the entire house and making decorations such as Balloon Ghosts. We end up making these Eyeball Donuts every year because they are so simple to make! No baking required. 😉 […]

It’s cold outside! This Star Wars Hot Chocolate is just the thing to make while snuggling under a blanket and watching your favorite Star Wars episode. Star Wars Hot Chocolate We just returned from visiting our family “up North” and freezing in the process. We desert rats don’t really do cold. Much of the country is buried in snow, and while we are enjoying slightly warmer temps outside, it still feels cold! And what do my boys want when it is cold? Cup after cup of hot chocolate. I thought it would be fun to put a twist on traditional hot chocolate and make Star Wars Hot Chocolate! We just saw Rogue One in the theater so we have Star Wars on the mind. (I’m pretty sure my boys always have Star Wars on their mind!) What could be more fun than floating Storm Trooper heads in your hot chocolate? This Star Wars hot chocolate is fun to drink at home or package it up to give as a gift to a neighbor or teacher. How to Make Star Wars Hot Chocolate Supplies needed: 16 ounce Wide Mouth Mason Jar -I like the Kerr brand because they are blank on one side Large Marshmallows Black Wilton Candy Decorating Pen White Acrylic Paint Black Acrylic Paint Paint Brushes-the small brush is #18 and the medium is #6 Rubbing Alcohol Pencil Paper Scissors 1-1/3 cup hot chocolate powder Directions: 1. Wipe the outside of a mason jar with rubbing alcohol and let dry. 2. Print out the Storm Trooper Templatewith a pencil and paper. 3.Place it onto the face of the jar and paint a white outline around the pattern. 4.Fill in the center of the storm trooper with white paint. Let dry for one hour. Paint a second and possibly third coat of white paint, letting dry an hour between each coat. 5. Lightly draw in pencil on the storm trooper to create the rest of the face. Paint the items with black paint and let dry completely. 6. If you’d like to cure the jars so the paint stays on, place the jar on a cookie sheet in a cool oven. Heat to 350 and bake for 30 minutes. Let cool in oven. Do not allow paint to come in contact with food (these directions are on the back of the paint, so each paint may vary). 7.To make marshmallows, use the black decorating pen to draw a Storm Trooper head on each marshmallow. 8. Once jar is cooled, fill it with hot cocoa powder and place marshmallows on top. 9.Screw the top on and give as a gift or enjoy as a family. Who do you know that would love this Star Wars Hot Chocolate? Make sure you share it with them!
