Like most of the United States, Va is having mild winter temperatures. We do not always expect snow but my daffodils are starting to emerge. We have had few requests for hot chocolate so far this winter but I am not sure I want to say that too loudly.
When my Family Fun Magazine came yesterday I browsed through it before going to bed. I fell in love with these Melted Frosties that I made them first thing in the morning for my kids.
We adapted the recipe slightly as we have some Torani Syrups left over from a review. My kids enjoyed Hot milk with toasted marshmallow and white chocolate flavoring instead of the flavors in the magazine.
I must admit I was surprised I had some candy corn still from the Fall. I bag left over candy and put it in my “cookie” jar for such occasions. You can still find these in the bagged candy aisles of most grocery and drugstores. The kids loved doing this kid friendly activity.
Family Fun Recipe:
Warm some milk adding 2 tsps of sugar per cup. Pour the mixture into mugs, stir 1/2 tsp. of Vanilla extract into each , then topwith a dollop of whipped cream. Float a candy corn nose and chocolate chips for the smile and eyes.
