There’s something so wonderful about settling down with a good book and a cosy blanket on the sofa, slurping on a delicious mug of hot chocolate. The sweet, warming drink is great company on a winter’s night, no? To celebrate this seasonal tradition, we thought we’d share some hot chocolate-themed projects with you, from a recipe itself to fabulous mug accessories.
Prepare to get a craving for cocoa…
We reach for this recipe again and again. It’s seriously yummy and surprisingly filling, as it’s got oatmeal as one of the ingredients. Find out how you can make it here.
A true hot chocolate treat calls for marshmallows. With help from this Martha Stewart recipe, you can discover how to make your very own from scratch. Why not toast them for an even more scrumptious taste?
PaperCrafter magazine share just how easy it is to embellish a mug using the Cricut Explore. Isn’t the pink heart design darling? Alternatively, choose a different motif on the software that’s more to your liking.
Who knew you could turn your children’s drawings into embroidered fabric to be cherished? We’re smitten with this tutorial from Sew magazine – mug cosies don’t get much more personalised than this.
If you prefer, there’s also this mug cosy crochet pattern from our friends at Top Crochet Patterns. We love the abundance of coloured stripes – they’re perfect for brightening up a dreary winter’s evening.
This set by our very own Helen Fitzjohn is seriously lovely. Make up the set from various papers and colour in her illustrations with your favourite colouring pens, then invite your friends round for a hot chocolate get-together!
Just looking at this card makes you feel all festive and cosy, doesn’t it? Discover the full tutorial and templates by Colette Smith here.
