No news today and an apology recipe

I’m very sorry, all – I had a death in my family and, as such, am unable to post today’s news.  I’ll be back tomorrow with our normal schedule of happy niceness.

As an apology, here is a recipe for Snowman Soup – also known as hot chocolate.  This will give you enough to package some up to give away.  If you Google “Snowman Soup,” there are a lot of very cute little poem cards that you can print out to include with your gift.



  • 2C confectioners’ sugar
  • 1C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-1/2C dry milk powder (can swap for malted milk powder if you want; just reduce the confectioners’ sugar by half)
  • 1t salt
  • 2t cornstarch
  • Hot milk or water, to serve


  • Combine the sugar, cocoa powder, milk powder, salt, and cornstarch.  To get out the lumps, do one of the following: 1) sift it together into a bowl; 2) put it in an airtight container and shake it up; or 3) blend it in the blender on a very low setting.
  • To serve, mix 2T of the dry ingredients in a mug with warm water or milk.
  • Stir to combine.  Top with marshmallows or candy canes, as so desired.
  • Enjoy!
