Cozy coasters for your favorite beverage, Mug Rugs are sure to bring a smile to the “mug” of everyone you gift them to! Now available in FOUR volumes, we have designs for just about everyone, from music teachers and hair dressers to military families and more. And what is a Mug Rug without a warm drink to go with it? Please enjoy my favorite Homemade Cocoa recipe below. Note: this cocoa is more semi-sweet than super-sweet. But I like to think it’s a little healthier (plus dark chocolate always wins in my book). 🙂
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a saucepan, mix cocoa, sugar, and salt; add water. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, then stir in milk. Heat to boiling point (do not boil). Add vanilla; beat with rotary beater just before serving. Float dollops of whipped cream or marshmallow creme atop each serving (and if you’re like me, you’ll also add a dash of cinnamon). Yield: 4 cups cocoa.
