Incredibly Delicious-SIPPITY Chocolate Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/20/2016

One of the things I like most about winter is that my Mom gives me hot chocolate after school as a treat. She knows that I like Sippity hot chocolate mix and that the chocolate, chocolate marshmallow and chocolate peppermint hot chocolate flavors are my favorites. My friend Steven likes to come to my house after school because he knows my Mom will make him chocolate peppermint hot chocolate-his favorite, which she usually tops off with whipped cream.

Today we got out of school early because of the snow. Because it was Friday I asked Steven and Joey to come home with me so that we could play in the snow. No sooner did we get settled in the house than my Mom brought us three mugs of chocolate peppermint hot chocolate.

“My goodness Mrs. Ingle I must say thank you for the hot chocolate,” Joey stated to my Mom in a tone identical to that of Eddie Haskell thanking Mrs. Cleaver from the popular 1960’s television show “Leave It To Beaver”.

“You’re quite welcome, Joey,” Mom replied in a tone identicial to that of Mrs. Cleaver.

“And how is Mr. Ingle?” Joey asked, as he swung his hand towards the mug of peppermint hot chocolate and knocked it over onto the counter spilling its contents across the countertop and onto the floor.

“Quick, Mark!” my Mom called out to me. “Bring me that towel,” referring to the kitchen towel that was handing on the side of the cabinet.

A few minutes after Joey had spilled his peppermint hot chocolate, she was preparing another one for Joey. Upon handing it to Joey she stated, “Please be careful this time, Joey.”

“I will Mrs. Ingle,” Joey replied. “And thank you for making me a second cup of peppermint hot chocolate.”

“You’re welcome, ‘Eddie’” I heard my Mom say under her breath as she turned and walked out of the kitchen.
