Who loves Andes Mints? I am obsessed. Literally, I count down the days until December 1st to open up the first box and lose all self-control. I know that they make these all year round but I hold off until Christmas season to eat, no devour these little chocolates of minty joy. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a homemade hot chocolate lover. Like a venti cup a day. And I look forward to it every morning. I honestly can’t believe that I didn’t make this hot chocolate until recently.
We have a family tradition each year of putting up our Christmas tree, decorating it with ornaments galore (we have 5 kids!) and then sitting around it singing some of our favorite Christmas tunes and drinking hot chocolate. This year I wanted to do something extra special. First, because it is our first Christmas in our newly built home and second, my niece Eleanor was coming and she just loves Christmas. So I decorated the table all nice, made a batch of this Slow Cooker Andes Mint Hot Chocolate and had the music set and we have the most amazing night around the tree. My mom came over and gave all the kids their traditional Christmas jammies and I, of course, had everyone say what they are grateful for….it was magical.
Not only am I grateful for this Slow Cooker Andes Mint Hot Chocolate and my family, but I am grateful getting to do what I love.
