Or, Count Your Blessings, However Small They Might Be 🙂

I just made my own mint hot chocolate!!! I saw some in the grocery store the other day, and stopped myself from buying a box. “Wait,” I told myself, “I have a mint plant at home, and hot chocolate mix – this can work!”

So, in while the water was coming up to a boil, I picked maybe 1/2 Tbsp (loose, not packed tight) of mint leaves. Gave them a rinse, a good bruising, and put them in the bottom of one of my big mugs. Once the water boiled, I poured it into the mug, and let steep about 5-7 minutes, fished the mint leaves out, then added my two packets of hot chocolate mix and mini-marshmallows! YUM 😀
