With the majority of winter and lots of time cooped up at home still ahead of us, we’re staying cozy and having fun while whipping up some unicorn and narwhal hot cocoa. Watch the video below to see how we make it!
Did you watch long enough to see the “cutie” platter at the end? It’s my favorite way to feed a crowd without actually having to cook or clean!
Most of the fixings got eaten before I could snap a picture for this post, so I thought I would try and put one together today and share on Instagram Stories. Come say “HI!” if you get a chance! I’ll also add it to an “eat” collection below my bio for safe keeping. For now, here’s the hot cocoa recipe…
UNICORN or NARWHAL HOT COCOA
- whole milk (or milk of your choice)
- powdered white mocha powder and/or white mocha syrup (you can use both or just one)
- 1/4 teaspoon all natural powdered food coloring (I like this kind!), or a drop of liquid food coloring
- toppings of choice: whip cream, sprinkles, marshmallows, paper straws, etc.
Over the stove or in the microwave, heat your milk. Stir in powder mix and/or syrup. Add food coloring. Once the milk has cooled enough for little ones to drink, add your toppings and enjoy!
*If you’re having the kids help you, make sure the milk isn’t scolding… spills tend to happen when kids are involved and I would hate for someone to get a burn!
Don’t forget the marshmallows and whip… Even if just for entertainment value ;)
Extra props to Johan for figuring out how to piece together the video… it was not an easy one!
Are there any videos you’d like to see in the future?
PS — See you over on Instagram later today!
