Hot Chocolate...mmm!'s cold outside! I think it's time for a nice cup of hot chocolate.
My daughter, Madison, has decided it's the time of year to have hot chocolate for breakfast, every morning. So, every morning we are pulling the chocolate mix can out of the cupboard, finding a spoon in the drawer, pulling a straw out of a jar, getting a mug from another cupboard, filling the mug with half water and half milk (I like the combination), then mixing up a nice cup of bliss (sometimes I join Madison!). How many steps in that process? Yesterday I thought long and hard about that and decided that there had to be a more efficient way. So I came up with the idea of a hot chocolate station that will sit on the counter for the winter. It eliminates several steps, making the hot chocolate making process more convenient and quick. It was so nice this morning to simply grab a mug from the cupboard, fill the mug, go to the station, then mix the cup of morning bliss. It helped to make my day a little brighter!

Items in the hot chocolate station:
  • Hot chocolate powder mix
  • straws
  • mini stirrers
  • mini marshmellows
  • cinnamon grinder
What things have you done to help your own mornings to be more
efficient or convenient?
