Hot Cocoa

Baby it’s cold outside!! What a perfect time to cozy up for a hot cup of cocoa. Our Ainsley Bug loves hot cocoa and it wouldn’t be complete without my Grandma Ruebushs recipe! This is a recipe that she’s had for years and I’m excited to get to share it. When I called my Grandma for the recipe – it’s another example of how they can bring us together. I enjoyed listening to her share about making the recipe and how sharing recipes has evolved over the years. So get your cocoa cups and fuzzy blankets ready! It’s time…
