Today’s clue was:

There is nothing better than The Polar Express, except maybe the hot chocolate that we like the best.

We had an early movie night, watched The Polar Express, ate S’Mores, and drank hot chocolate.

We kicked off the Christmas break a day early, and the night was good and perfect in every way.

This Polar Express Hot Chocolate is delicious with some marshmallows or whipped cream.  And, it is even better while watching the movie by the fire with your littles while eating some yummy s’mores.

Why, yes, we do believe.

      Whipped Cream
      1 pint heavy whipping cream
      1/4 cup sugar
      1 teaspoon vanilla
      Add the heaving whipping cream to a bowl.
      Beat with an electric mixer on low speed.
      Slowly add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
      Continue to beat for 8-12 minutes, until stiff, fluffy peaks start to form.

      Enjoy!
