As you all know, we’re about to travel to Alaska aboard the beautiful Disney Wonder. And if you’ve been reading my blog long, you will have guessed that we’re going to be participating–once again–in the fish extender gift exchange. If so, you’d have have guessed correctly. This go ’round, I came up with a gift themed specifically to our destination. That is: hot chocolate mix-ins to jazz up a plain old mug of cocoa.
On deck nine of the Disney Wonder there is a beverage station. One of the beverages available to each and every guest for 24/7 dispensing is hot chocolate. Considering the cool climate to which we’re traveling, I assume that the vast majority of guests will visit the hot chocolate dispenser at least once or twice. Hopefully, our tasty mix-ins will add precisely the right touch of fun and fancy to a each cup.
Here’s what we came up with:
We chose a variety of mix-ins for kids and adults alike (ahem, peppermint schnapps). Here’s a close look at what’s in the bag.
It includes: mini marshmallows, Peppermint Schnapps, Nutella spread, cinnamon chips, butterscotch chips, tiny peanut butter cups (we found them at Trader Joe’s), white chocolate chips, chocolate dipped spoons (we made those) and a sugar/chocolate/coffee bean grinder we found at Trader Joe’s.
We also tucked a little note into each bag, letting the recipient know where to find the hot chocolate dispenser aboard the ship.
