Mint Hot Chocolate for Two!
The best thing about the holidays is the act of giving. I think the best kind of gifts are the ones that are made with love and homemade. I love making small tokens for neighbours, secretaries, tellers–basically anyone who makes a difference in my daily life something small but, special.
I thought I’d share one of my favorite gifts to give that not only provides a warm and delicious treat but, the invitation to share it with someone else. My Mint Hot Chocolate in a jar is always a hit and I don’t mean to toot my own horn but, it’s extra creamy and perfectly sweet. One of the best parts is that you can make it all at home. All you need is ingredients you may already have in your pantry, paper, and an HP printer.
Share the Experience.
This Mint Hot Chocolate recipe for two is an invitation for the receiver to enjoy a warm cup of chocolate goodness on a cold winter’s day with someone special. To me, I think that connecting with someone one on one is super important in this world’s digital-age.
So, drop the smartphone and invite a friend over or share it with your significant other or take some time to sit down with your child and really have a great conversation. You’ll be glad you did!
Never Run Out.
To make this gift, you will need to print out my Mint Hot Chocolate label printable and the Ingredient and Instructions label printable. That means you will need to make sure you have enough ink for your printer. What is more frustrating than running out of ink when you need it the most? Especially when you want to make a quick gift for someone and want to print off a cool printable and it’s too late to get more ink. We’ve all been there, trust me.
So, the only solution is to NEVER run out! Yes, that’s totally a thing! With an HP Instant Ink subscription, you’ll never have the issue of running out of ink while you are tacking a project or the inconvenience of having to run out to the store to get more.
How Does It Work?
Your printer will let HP know when you’re running out of ink and then HP will send ink cartridges right to your door. So forget running out to get more, it’ll be there when you need it. Plus, you can save up to 50% off in comparison to HP Original Ink. The HP plans start at $3.99/month for occasional printing (50 pages per month) and go up to $10.99/month for frequent printing which is about 300 pages per month. It’s simple!
