Last night, Courtney (one of my frogs) held a little get together at her house to have hot chocolate and walk around with the kids to see the neighborhood Christmas lights. It was a great excuse to get together! Courtney loves planning little events, and is always coming up with creative ideas. I saw these little cupcakes she made and had to share the idea.
Completely no bake, these hot chocolate cupcakes will take seconds to make. She bought chocolate mini-cupcakes at the store, added a candy cane for a handle, and a few marshmallows on top to finish up the little hot chocolate “mugs.” SO cute!! And so easy!!
And to go along with her “hot chocolate” theme, she had little Christmas gifts for all the kids who came. The cups were used for hot chocolate during our Christmas light stroll, and the little mittens meant to keep little hands warm while we were out in the cold — cold for Florida, that is! A single candy cane was in the cups (and we thank her for the lack of candy) and some other Christmas-themed activities. Her favor bags are always so thoughtful!
I couldn’t help but snap a few pictures of the holiday decorations she put up around the house…bulbs hung from the chandelier, a baby sock advent calendar, a tree of ornaments made from the kids’ pictures, and apothecaries filled with colorful bulbs on the counter and a cup full of candy canes. These details were easy to put up, and definitely made a great visual impact in her house. Thanks again for a lovely evening, Courtney!
