Gourmet Hot Cocoa and Daddy's Special Touch

About 10 years ago, one of my sister's-in-law changed my life forever. Toddler baby Sebastian and I were visiting her house on a winter vacation. She offered us all (my mom and I think my little bro were there too) some hot cocoa. This was to be no ordinary hot cocoa. She pulled out these big, round cocoa mugs and some flavoring syrups. I chose Irish Creme syrup for was soooooooooo yummy!! I did not grow up drinking hot cocoa on a regular basis during the soon as I got home from this trip I went and bought some hot cocoa, flavoring syrup and used our BIG soup mugs for Dave and I to enjoy this special treat at our house! :)
Dave has added his own special touch to our gourmet hot cocoa experience...he has taken it a step further by adding whipped cream, chocolate syrup and sprinkles!

Everything is more special with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and sprinkles! Suddenly your pancakes are happy to see you! Your hot cocoa makes you feel pampered! Your ice cream is restaurant worthy! Add whipped cream, holiday sprinkles and a little lemon-lime soda to egg nog and you have a festive holiday treat! Daddy's special touch makes everything a little bit better! :)

  1. we've since added scoops of ice cream and/or whipped cream (but only at Christmas time!) and still love the flavored syrups. :)
    Those are beautiful photos of the cocoa.
    The sprinkles are cute!!!
