Friday Favorites + Hot Cocoa Stirers

We have a Valentines Party at school today, some other activities, and then I’m coming home and crashing. I just could not get it together this week. I’m glad it’s Friday. ๐Ÿ™‚

One.Him. Not just this week, but I’m feeling extra thankful this week for what we have. You can read more about that, here.

Two.Because who doesn’t love a good pasta dish!?


Eric and I took a short getaway and it was perfect-o!

Four.They were calling for snow but who knew if it would actually happen. Well, what do you know? We woke up to this. ๐Ÿ™‚ It made our time away even more fun and beautiful!

Five. All this snow had me craving these Hot Cocoaย Stirers. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • One Dark Chocolate Bar per stirer
  • Milk
  • Whipped cream or other toppings

What to do:

You will need one chocolate bar per stirer. (I used Dove Dark Chocolate Bars). In a small sauce pan, break the chocolate bars into smaller pieces and melt on medium low to low heat. Stir occasionally to avoid burning and until fully melted. Pour or spoon the melted chocolate into a one inch tray. Place in the refrigerator for about 40 minutes or until firm. Stick a popsicle stick into the center of the cube. Return to the refrigerator for an additional 20 minutes or so.

Place stirer into a mug of heated milk and stir until melted. Top with your favorite toppings! xo

Psstt… I used thisย one inch Silicone cube tray and it worked great! This and this also look like they would work well!
