i have been getting a heap of emails recently (thank you so much i absolutely LOVE getting them) and i want to respond to you all with measurements, know-how, and detailed instructions in some cases! i promise i will reply to you all next week! unfortunately i have torn my hamstring and the pain is making me really tired ... my doctor told today it was a good thing we were going away for the weekend so i would stop trying to move around so much and just relax ... i'm an active relaxer, what can i say. so to those people still waiting i am so sorry, i will get to you very soon :)
day 230 and i reckon camping and hot chocolates are synonymous :) we are off camping this weekend as our last major getaway for this summer. we are going to the tippety top of the coromandel with amazing friends who are good at camping and have all the things that you need ... we don't but we try~! we always come home with the best camping stories, mostly because we camp sporadically and generally go with a "she'll be right" attitude that fails to live up to its promise somewhere along the way! sometimes i look back at our camping adventures and wonder why our two peeps still trust us :)
anyway, i wanted to make sure we pitched in with the things we could provide, mostly food options~! this hot chocolate mix, i figured would be the perfect start. it is on the camping cafe website and they have some awesome looking recipes for campers, so of which i will be trying during our trip away for pinterest. the recipe, along with a whole host of other ones, is pinned to my summer loving board.
this hot chocolate mix will save buying the ready made sachets, and i figured as the nights cool down, this would be a perfect drink for peeps and adults alike to warm up with. the camping cafe then has suggestions on how to make this mix into the worlds best hot cocoa ... which we will definitely also be using while away.
|notice the choc bits bag has already been opened.....and some are missing......Steve?|
you simply mix powdered sugar, salt, cocoa, powdered milk, and milk chocolate drops together. then when you want to use the mix you add 3 heaped tablespoons to the mug with hot water ... sounds GOOD!
outcome: well it was completely easy to make, seriously grab a big plastic container and add ingredients according to instructions. put the lid on and shake ... really, really hard to see anyone finding this difficult! the mix smells amazing and i think this would fantastic gifts just by putting it in a cute jar, adding a label with the instructions and some marshmallows ... great idea for gifting during the winter, don't you think?
