The Romantic's Guide to Hot Cocoa

What's so romantic about hot cocoa, you ask?

What's not romantic about hot cocoa? Just the very thought of cuddling up with my hubby on a cold winter day with a cup of hot cocoa is enough to make me wish for a winter storm to blow in that shuts everything down!

Hopefully it won't take a winter storm to make you sit down and enjoy talking with your spouse over a cup of hot chocolate one evening during the winter. Here are some ideas to help inspire this mini-date of sorts...

How About Orange posted a DIY tutorial for this clever cocoa dusting.

Martha Stewart tells her secret for making these cute heart-shaped marshmallows!





LollyChops provides the idea, recipe, and free downloads to make both of these hot cocoa packages! I especially like the first. I'd attach a tag that says, "You make me Hot! Hot! Hot!"


Kellie Fortin created these fun "Hot Cocoa for Two" cones...this could make a fun gift for any other couples you are friends with, too.


Personalization Mall offers some creative inspiration for the serious hot cocoa lover who would appreciate their own mug!

Our Best Bites has the Ultimate Hot Chocolate recipe...with all sorts of possible variations (Mint, Peppermint, Hazelnut, Mexican Hot Chocolate....) Yum!


Don't think I've forgotten about those of you in a long-distance relationship! No matter the distance, hot cocoa can still bring you closer together this winter!


This would be a really light-weight item to ship to your hunny and no doubt it'd leave a warm spot in their heart for you!

Or, send a couple of individual cocoa packs along with a tag that says:


Ha.Ha.

If you want the kiddos to help you make a little surprise for mom or dad, this would be a fun and easy little project. (Of course...I'd write something cute on that mug...like any of the above sentiments)

(I found this by doing a google search...so I have no idea where it's from)

One of Love, Actually's readers submitted a link to her blog where she posted about a "Hot Chocolate Date" her and her hubby had just a while ago.

She writes,
"After putting up our AWESOME tree we finished our night with a Hot Cocoa date. Jonathan found this HUGE mug. Even bigger than the soup mugs.. and he made a big cup of Hot Cocoa, we went and sat in front of our tree while sharing our GIANT cup of Hot Cocoa. Definitely a fun little date to share a warm cup this time of year. I would recommend it to anyone!"

I swear--I didn't tell her to post that! :) Thanks for sharing, Chelsea!

Last week we took our son to check out the Festival of Lights (he loves Christmas lights) and since it was nice and cold, afterwards, we picked up a couple of donuts and had hot cocoa! My son loved it and it was great to have spent it together!

I don't usually post other people's big blog graphics on my newbie blog because I don't want to typeset my blog too soon before really getting it off the ground. But, I couldn't resist your blog and having a link to you from mine. Your posts are so creative!
