With the days turning chilly, walks on the beach or in the forest are being finished with flasks filled with hot chocolate or coffee. Over the years I have created for the children chocolaty goodness topped with marshmallows, squirty cream and even a sprinkling of tiny gingerbread men. Hands wrapped around a steaming mug to warm them from a walk on a cold winters day or after school, snuggled under a blanket watching cartoons. There is definitely something warm and cosy about a mug of hot chocolate don't you think? And remember to put the marshmallows under the cream so they can melt in to the hot chocolate. Here are a couple of great hot chocolate recipes if you fancy making your own instead of an instant one.
