Hot Chocolate How-Tos

 

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…

1 Make Delicious Hot Chocolate

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.

2 Add In Some Marshmallows

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?

3 Decorate Your Mug

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.

4 Stitch a Personalised Cosy

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.

5 ...Or Crochet One Instead
