I am one of the room moms for our twins’ 5th grade class, and this Friday is their Christmas party.
My kids are lucky, they still get Christmas parties… I have talked to many friends, and their kids have “winter” parties. I LOVE singing Christmas Carols and singing the kids all dressed in their Sunday best at their programs.
I am thankful my kids go to a Catholic school.
We are doing this cute craft I found on Pinterest
and having a hot cocoa bar!
My daughter and I made these cute Chocolate Peppermint Stir Spoons!
They couldn’t be easier to make and so good in hot cocoa!!
Want to make your own cocoa mix?
Chocolate Peppermint Stirring Spoons
48 plastic spoons
6 candy canes crushed
2 cups chocolate chips
2 teaspoons crisco
Crush your candy canes.
Line cookie sheets with waxed paper. Rest spoons on edge of cookie sheet.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave for about 1 minute and then 30 second intervals until you can stir them smooth, add crisco and stir until incorporated.
**I used a glass 2 cup measuring cup … worked great to pour the chocolate into the spoons!**
Pour chocolate into spoon well, and tap the spoon to make the chocolate pool evenly in the spoon.
Add crushed peppermints and place in the refrigerator to set up.
Swirl it through some hot cocoa and Relax….
