Ultra creamy hot cocoa! Perfect for a cold day!!  Little Dairy on the Prairie

Yup, that’s why winter days were made. I love, love, love it when my boys come in the house, gather around the bar and visit. Nothing keeps them there and visiting quite as long as when they have a really yummy treat. 
Hot cocoa floats with peppermint ice cream!! Add whatever flavor of ice cream you are craving!! - Little Dairy on the Prairie

You may know that some boys aren’t the greatest at talking. Since I have four of them, I need all the “get them talking” help I can get. Food unlocks the talking in them. As long as I keep shoveling it to them they keep staying!

Hot Cocoa Floats!!  Little Dairy on the PrairieThis happens to be one of their favorites. I only give it to them if they promise to tell me secrets. Just kidding, maybe! It’s one of my favorites too because I can whip it together in no time.

Dreamy and creamy hot cocoa floats!!

Make a batch of your favorite commercial hot cocoa. Or make your own if you are really ambitious. Add a few scoops of ice cream to each glass. Pour that piping hot cocoa over the ice cream in each mug. Add a straw, a spoon and there you have it.

Of course you can make all different combinations of hot cocoa floats. This one happens to be milk chocolate hot cocoa and peppermint stick ice cream. Have fun playing experimenting and coming up with your favorite combinations!

Big Brother Big Helper

First of all I have to say that it melts me to see my oldest help his little brother. The thing is, he is always helpful like this. Carson is one of the kindest people I know.  He gets it from his Dad. Love him!! (The kid and his Dad)

Family Cross Country Skiing

My mother in law has cross country skis and my boys decided to borrow them. They had been begging me to come ski with them. Don’t get me wrong, I love to go ski with them. My hang up was the temperature. It was a nippy 18 degrees when we left. We probably only went two miles. By the time we got back it was 13 degrees. I’m such a pansy when it comes to cold weather. I had so much fun with them that I didn’t even notice that it was so cold. Maybe because I am out of shape. Although I must admit that I kicked their trash! I was ahead of them the whole time! Loved it!!
