It’s November. It’s almost Thanksgiving. And it’s been 90 degrees at Plush Puffs HQ the last couple days. What the what?! I know it’s Southern California, but it’s not usually THAT hot here this time of year. Luckily, the nights are cool and temps will drop significantly this weekend. Meanwhile, the rest of the country is bundling up and trying to warm their toes.
And there is no better way to warm up than with some favorite creature comforts, like hot chocolate & marshmallows, a romantic moment, your favorite person, and maybe a nip of something.
Peppermint Hot Cocoa with Peppimint Plush Puffs marshmallows and Peppermint Schnapps
Don’t skimp on the hot cocoa. Make it rich and dreamy. We recommend the Ticket Kitchen French Dark Truffle hot chocolate on a stick or the Double Dark Cocoa drinking chocolate from Eclipse Chocolate. Both of these are silky and decadent. To make them pepperminty, top off with a couple of Plush Puffs Peppimint peppermint marshmallows, made with real peppermint extract and nothing artificial. They will melt perfectly into the cocoa to create a flavor that will bring you back to your favorite winters of your memories.
To make it more romantic, add a tablespoon of Peppermint Schnapps and a share the moment with a loved one. Turn a simple hot cocoa into a romantic, thoughtful dessert by serving it on a table with a table cloth and gorgeous candlesticks like these from Red Envelope.
