I made ours extra special with the use of my handy cuisinart smart stick hand blender and some heavy whipping cream. Pretty sure the mr. had no idea that was how whipped cream was made. If you choose to make homemade whipped cream, skip the sugar, I think you will find the cocoa mix is sweet enough.
This may just become my go-to-gift for the holidays. Maybe coupled with some cute mugs and homemade marshmallows?!
