Although we still have yet to see any December snow here in the Northeast, the nights are chilly and perfect for cuddling up with a cup of rich hot cocoa. After a long day’s work, wrapping all the presents and baking up a storm for the holiday party, I can’t think of anything prettier than a cup of cocoa topped off with marshmallows and a candy cane. Can you? I didn’t think so. I love the idea of giving hot cocoa as cute little gifts for friends, family and coworkers. Wrap them up with red and white striped bakers twine or package them in a pretty box with red and white striped tissue paper! Sending out some holiday cards and want a little extra magic on your envelope? Use some pretty striped Washi tape on the back for that special touch. Everyone loves the personal touches this time of year, especially when there’s chocolate inside!
