Snow Day Essentials

Play in the cold and then warm up inside with tips from DarlingSouth.com

Since we’re expecting more snow here this weekend, I wanted to share my essentials for a snow day. Of course there are a few things you need to really enjoy a good snow day: something for playing in the snow, and a few things to warm up with after you’ve enjoyed your time outside.

I gathered up a few fun toys for your time in the snow. From snowman kits to a classic sled, there’s a little something for everyone.

A snow day calls for hot cocoa, so I thought I would share my recipe. I mention using dark cocoa powder, but regular is fine to use if that’s what you have on hand.

 

Hot Cocoa

Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 8 oz milk
  • 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • assorted toppings optional

Instructions

  1. Heat milk in a saucepan over medium low heat. 

  2. Add in sugar, cocoa, and salt and stir with a whisk until the cocoa dissolves and the milk becomes frothy.

  3. Remove from heat and add in vanilla. 

  4. Pour into a mug and top with marshmallows and/or whipped cream. Caramel sauce, chocolate shavings, or crushed candy cane make great toppings, too.
