The other day, I posted a picture of my hot cocoa set up on instagram and you guys went crazy for those little marshmallow snowman. Honestly I don’t blame you, the little guys are soooooo cute, I actually avoided eating them because they were just thattttttt cute.
Anyway so after the instagram went live I got sooooo many questions from you all asking about which hot cocoa mix I prefer, where I found those little marshmallow man and if I had any ideas for a hot cocoa bar. & oh boy do I have some ideas for you.
I’ve always loved Christmas break because I get to spend time seeing friends, that I literally never see (it’s a tad depressing I admit). I lived in San Diego, now Dallas and yet when I have the chance to be back in New England I’m always thinking of fun ways to meet up with friends and cousins (have I mentioned I have 25 cousins!). Basically the holidays are a time for me to finally catch up with the people I love and rarely see.
In college I was all about heading out to meet friends for coffee, but if you think you’re broke in college, just wait till after college when you have to pay bills (LOL). So with the chilly months of December upon, I save money and skip the coffee shops and instead, invite friends over to my home for some classic hot chocolate, and a marathon of Parks & Recreation.
What better way to catch up than over some cute gingerbread man, Parks & Recreation and holiday gifts. I loveeeeeee buying gifts for my friends, it’s literally on my top of favorite holiday traditions.
Okay, so if you’re going to host your hometown homies over for some hot chocolate this is what you’ll need: hot chocolate mix, Marshmallow Snowman, Gingerbread House Mug Topper, Marble Tray (for serving) & a Classic Plaid Throw.
Oh & obviously you can’t forget to get your TCC Mugs to sip that hot cocoa out of! A little self promotion never hurt anyone right, kidding! In all serious though, I use my TCC mugs everyday, just as Matt, so if you’re in the market for a great gift item, get yours just in time for Christmas here.
Okay guys, Matt & I are off to pack! We had back to New England this week, can you believe it! xx Aubrey
