Many of my winter childhood memories are about sledding, Cupcake (our dog) stealing our mittens, and hot chocolate. I’m a traditional hot chocolate with mini marshmallows kind of girl. So tasty when the marshmallows start to melt into the hot chocolate. I have created a hot chocolate bar all from Aldis for under $15.

They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!

I have young children so I knew they would love adding chips/morsels to their hot chocolate. I found all of the ingredients at Aldis except for the peppermint chips, I bought them in the bulk department of our local grocery store.

I created homemade signs, found these adorable buckets at the dollar store to put the delicious chips in, and kid friendly mugs for the hot chocolate (also from the dollar store). The tiered tray works perfectly for the mugs and buckets. I found this cute Christmas tablecloth at Wegmans.
