winter whites + hot chocolate recipe

The holidays are officially upon us and I can't wait to start decorating my house for the holidays . I am loving the creamy/wintery whites and neutrals for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. They are just gorgeous and keep the spirit light! Also I have a yummy hot chocolate recipe for you try. My family always makes this thanksgiving and christmas morning. Enjoy! 
Homemade Hot Chocolate...
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa
1 tablespoon table salt
whole milk for serving
whip cream

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Pour one cup whole milk in mug and microwave on high until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of mixture, stir and dissolve. For a larger batch warm the milk in saucepan set over medium-low heat. As it warms stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk. Add whip cream and cinnamon. 

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
