Bits of Sweetness: And Glad Tidings to you

And Glad Tidings to you

One of my favorite things about Christmas are the sweet moments shared with family. After all, as wonderful as the presents are, what stands out are the cherished memories with my family and friends. A few nights ago, I changed plans (from homework) to spending time with my dad and brother. Sometimes a change of plans is a good thing. A very very good thing. We shared a meal, told stories, and slowly sipped hot cocoa by the twinkling lights of the tree. You can't get much more Christmas-y than that now, can you? (Much better than homework too, don't you think?!) I recently discovered the joy of making my own hot cocoa. It is delicious. See for yourself  :-)

Perfect Hot Cocoa
4 c. Milk
1/2 c. cocoa powder (the real stuff!)2 Tbs vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbs. chocolate syrup (opt.)
1 c. sugar

Bring all ingredients to a boil. Simmer for several minutes.
