Roasted Peeps in Hot Chocolate

Halloween Peeps!
This totally isn't a recipe, but it's just a fun way to change up hot chocolate. And I may have mentioned it before in a couple of other posts, but I thought it deserved it's own post too--it's just that yummy and fun.

So on our honeymoon Eric and I made peep smores and I had the thought to put a roasted Peep in a cup of hot cocoa. (A regular roasted marshmallow would be fabulous too!)

Halloween Peep Smores!

I highly recommend making your own hot chocolate mix. You'll never go back to the store-bought stuff, trust me.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Pour about half of the mix into a good processor and pulse until the chocolate chips become finely ground. Pour into an airtight container. Repeat with the other half of the mix.

To make a cup of hot chocolate: heat up 1 cup milk or water, pour in 1/3 cup hot cocoa mix, and stir.

And you might just want to put a pumpkin Peep in your pumpkin hot cocoa!
