DIY Christmas // with a c.h.

Hello, A Creative Day readers! I'm Christin from with a C.H. and I'm so excited to be participating in the DIY Christmas Gift series. I won't lie, when Eileen asked me to be a part of this I sort of freaked out. Okay, I freaked out a lot. You see, I don't really "make" things a lot per se. I bake and I cook but I don't give it as gifts and I surely don't craft. Cannot craft to save my life. But then I sat down and thought about something I could make that people would want that wouldn't only last for a few days. Enter homemade hot chocolate.
This is so easy and it's delicious and you will wonder why you ever bought those packets of Swiss Miss. Really, you will. You might even cry tears of joy because this, my friends, tastes like liquid chocolate. Much like my chocolate ice cream base. Trust me, it's delicious. I had set out to follow a recipe because I didn't want to lead you astray, but I couldn't find one that didn't add a disgusting amount of sugar. So I had to make one up. Yep, I'm awesome like that. And it's good. Chocolatey, not too sweet and goes great with some peppermint liqueur or Baileys. What? We're all adults here. HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate 1/4 cup milk chocolate 1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa 1/4 cup sugar Combine semi-sweet and milk chocolate in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until you have small grounds but pay attention! You could end up with a chocolatey paste, which is delicious, but not what we're going for here. Transfer chocolate to a mixing bowl and add cocoa and sugar. Mix to combine and put in the cutest little jars you can find and tie those suckers up with twine! To make hot chocolate: Simmer 2 cups of milk to 1/3 cup mix. I like to warm the milk and add the chocolate off the heat and whisk until combined. Also amazing with peppermint liqueur and baileys. Start with two shots, one is a waste of time. You're welcome.

Hmmmm, I'm thinking I'll be making a big batch of this while my nieces and nephew are visiting this weekend. You better believe my glass will be getting more than a few shots of baileys!
