Today is our first recipe in our series Kids in the Kitchen: COOKBOOK ADVENTURES. To read the intro to this series, please click here.
The first recipe up is a much loved classic around our house- Cocoa! We have hot cocoa more than I would care to share during the winter time. I’m just as bad as the kids! Snow equals hot cocoa. ALWAYS! How much snow you ask? Just a single flake qualifies 😉
LittleChef3 chose this recipe and cooked it all by himself.

*LitteChef3 is our sugarholic! I’m scared his exotic pets would be too, LOL!
The little kids put the cocoa in their favorite mugs. LittleChef3 has a white alligator on his cup from the Zoo, and LittleChef4 has his name on it from The Great Smoky Mountains 😀
I’m not sure where those reindeer mugs even came from, but they fit the occasion 🙂
Here’s a full color version since it was hard to see in the comic sketch.
Stay tuned for next week’s adventure…..
