Sparkle #182: Rainbow Recipes for a Lucky Day!

I like it when…

Sparkle #161: Homemade Hot Chocolate Mixes

A rich cup of hot chocolate can warm the coldest winter night and bring a smile on everyone’s face in the family. I love hot chocolate and it is probably the only dessert/drink where I indulge guilt free without wondering if healthy and fat free versions exist! Which is why, I am delighted to have stumbled upon these amazing hot chocolate mix recipes. They sound way better than the store brought versions, are easy to whip up and can be made ahead to store and use during the cold winter months. Check out two of my favorite recipes here, and share your favorite recipes via comments…
