Real Hot Chocolate.

My motherly obligation has been fulfilled. We went outside today in this "feels like 5 degrees" weather and played until their little hearts were content, which was about 9 minutes. Jackson even sat on the patio and cried, which I totally understood, because I, too, hate the snow and cold.

We made snow angels and tried to make a snowman, had a snowball fight and a few races around the house (which I won, by the way). And I took a few pictures to stash away as proof that I do things I don't want to do, too. 

The best part came at the end: Hot Chocolate. I am fancy and use a CocoMotion, but this recipe works just as well on the stove with a whisk. And just so you know, once you make this hot chocolate, Swiss Miss will never do the trick again.

4 c. milk
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla
shake of salt

Place all ingredients in medium sauce pan and start whisking over medium heat. The cocoa powder can be tricky because it will clump a little, but if you take the time to really whisk it while its on the stove, it will blend in nice and smooth. Once it is of desired hotness, you can pour it in a mug and drink it up.
