Winter warmer

It's officially cold here; the cars were covered in frost and we all had icy breath as we walked back from school today. Hats, scarves, earmuffs and mittens are most definitely required.

What better way to warm us up when we get home than with a mug of hot chocolate. Here's how we make it chez Deering - Buddy and Daisy in charge of proceedings of course.

1. Measure out desired milk quantities in mugs of choice.

2. Transfer milk into microwaveable jug and heat up for about 1 min 30s.

3. Meanwhile mix 1 tsp of cocoa with a little milk in each mug to form a thick chocolatey paste.

4. Add 1 tsp of sugar to each mug.

5. Pour in warmed milk and stir, stir, stir until the chocolate paste has melted into the creamy liquid, and there you have it - comfort in a cup.


  1. Yum, looks like they enjoyed it. I love all the craft ideas you have on your blog - will def try some out, thank you for the inspiration. V sweet blog!

  2. My friend wanted to see the 'after' photo, showing their chocolatey moustaches; they certainly had them!
    Thanks for commenting and for your kind words about Adventures At Home. Have been checking out BPC just now - it's fab. And I'll definitely be visiting again soon. x

  3. Awww, thank you. I do love it when I stumble upon a new blog and yours is really inspiring with all the craft you do - love the crocodile and the car-run into the paddling pool. I'll def be trying some of your ideas out with my three.
