There was still a value sized box of Snickers Ice Cream Bars!! woot woot!

Long story short, our store was out of food!! I was going to buy hot chocolate but the only containers left were “no sugar added” … no thanks!!

So while the kids were outside playing this morning, I was in the kitchen whipping up some delicious Homemade Hot Chocolate!
