Guest Post: Hot Chocolate Floats from Keri at Shaken Together

Today we have another fun guest post! This one is from Keri at shaken together, and she’s made us a yummy treat:  Hot Chocolate Floats.  Take it away Keri!

Hi there, Simply Sweet Home friends!  My name is Keri and I blog over at shaken together!!

Shaken Together

It’s my home away from home where I share recipes, easy crafts/DIY projects, giveaways, a weekly link party and snippets of our life with 12 years of marriage and counting, two kids and two cats … you know, our life, shaken together!  I would love to connect with you at my blog, on FacebookTwitter or Pinterest!

Today, I am so excited that Jerri invited me to share one of our family’s favorite holiday treats …

There is nothing better than a rich mug of hot chocolate on a cold night, right?!  Well, unless it is topped with a scoop of ice cream, sprinkles and maybe a drizzle of hot fudge!

Whip up a batch of hot chocolate – you can use instant mix, I won’t judge – but there are tons of easy recipes for homemade hot chocolate that will probably rock your socks off 🙂  I am dying to try this hot chocolate mix from Something Swanky!

Anyway, gather your mugs and fill about 2/3 full with your hot chocolate.  Add a scoop of ice cream (we used peppermint!) and sprinkle on your favorite toppings.  I added a drizzle of warm hot fudge and festive holiday sprinkles!

This is seriously the best of both worlds … an ice cream sundae and a sweet steamy mug of hot chocolate!!

Jerri, thanks so much for the opportunity to share this sweet treat with your readers!  Hope to see you all again soon!  And happy, happy holidays!

Thanks again to Keri for posting here today!


I’m linking up at Tidy Mom and these parties.

    Yum! I’m making these tonight. My girls will think I am the best mom in the world. Sprinkles take it up to eleven. They will be beside themselves when I put the ice cream in. Thank you!

    That is genius! Why didn’t I think of that?!?!

  5. Yup! You can count me in for this one! Peppermint and chocolate are my favorites and a good old fashioned float always go over well in this household. Who am I kidding? I always love a good Keri recipe!
