Sibling rivalry. It’s making me crazy people. I love those two kids of mine, but why they insist on arguing about everything that ever existed is beyond me. I remember my mother telling my brother and I when we were little that someday we would have kids that would fight, and we too, would go crazy. Well guess what, she wasn’t wrong. I may have to lock them in separate rooms until….14 years from now.
Hot cocoa is one of my kids’ favorite winter treats, and instant cocoa mix is so simple to make. Just a few ingredients and you have a large batch of mix ready to get you through the colder months. I love hot cocoa because it’s so easily customized. Add a pinch of cayenne and cinnamon, caramel sauce, peppermint schnapps, peanut butter. Something for everyone, and hopefully, no arguments included!
