hot cocoa s'more mugs

you lucky freezing people you.
oh how i envy you!

10 degrees?
lemme have it.
7 layers of clothing?
lemme have it.
get up 3 hours before you have to be at work so you can defrost your car window or shovel your driveway?
lemme have it.

i am seriously serious.
i grew up in that kinda weather for 21 years and 
oh how i miss it so!
i have the BEST memories of playing in the snow...

right now living in florida in the heat is soooooo old it has fried my brain and caused me to go into brain blockage that i couldn't think of what to make.
thus my lack of posts lately.

luckily a nice cup of cocoa helped.
what's that you say?
that's not the cocoa you were thinking of?

oh goodie!
let's make this one then.
darn home goods. 
i walk in there all innocent only to leave with a bag of stuff i never realized i couldn't live without.
normal people would use these cutters for cookies but since i'm not normal and would rather freeze to death than bask in the sun, we'll move on.
careful cutting that hole!
you don't wanna crack the cracker.
i used a hand sized paring knife and it worked :)
let's add some yummies.

i didn't have any stacker marshmallows thus the use of the fluff which actually worked out better.

yup, these suckers actually stand alone.

and if that wasn't enough, 
i added a little personality.
did you ever think a cup of cocoa would have eyelashes?
i realize the cutter may be hard to find so i tried cutting it myself and it worked.
not perfect but good enough :)

but here's a cutter that could work too i think, you'll just have to use a regular size graham cracker though.
did you notice the different versions?
keep 'em in the freezer until you're ready to munch on them since the fluff can ooze and get kinda melty. 
i added the heart nose so you can make a lovin' cup of cocoa for this upcoming valentine's day for your sweetie too.



and there you have it.
now if you'll excuse me, 
i'm gonna go have a hot cocoa s'more mug with a cup of hot cocoa in this 80 degree humidity heat while i dream of 
fluffy snow and icicles, 
which by the way, you can send me any day.

  9. You've done it again - such a funny, sweet idea! I feel for you in all that heat - you poor thing! We're kind of mild here in the UK, a bit windy but I think a cold snap is on it's way for us. I guess we all just need to be careful what we wish for though!
