Toasty Warmth-SIPPITY Chocolate Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Mix

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/5/2016

“I’ll tell you, Monica, it sure is cold out tonight,” my husband, Kurt, stated after he returned home from a boy scout meeting with our son, Roger on a cold, 13-degree, night in early April. “Roger and I are freezing,” he added. “Do you have any of that Sippity chocolate marshmallow hot cocoa mix left?”

“Actually, I do,” I replied, as I started to walk towards my kitchen pantry. “Here it is,” I stated aloud as I reached in and pulled the box of Sippity chocolate marshmallow mix from the pantry.

“Oh, good, Mom,” Roger stated with enthusiasm. “I’ll be down in five minutes. I’m going to put on my PJ’s.”

“Perfect, Roger. Your chocolate marshmallow hot cocoa should be ready by then.”

For the next five minutes Kurt filled me in on the subjects discussed at the boy scouts meeting, while I prepared the chocolate marshmallow hot cocoa. The big issue was should the troop continue as planned with its overnight camping trip this weekend since the rather unusual cold spell we are currently experiencing is forecasted to continue into early next week. Living in Englewood’s Cliffs, New Jersey it is exceptionally rare that we get a cold spell this late in the early spring, let alone two snow storms in the past week. “So, Kurt, what did the troop decide? Are you going on the overnight this weekend?”

“Yeah, we’re going,” Kurt replied, as I handed him a toasty warm mug of Sippity chocolate marshmallow hot cocoa. “This is a guy thing, Monica. Guys love it when they’re faced with harsh environmental conditions.”

“Oh, I get it Kurt. And to show the boy scouts just how macho you and the other fathers are, I bet you’re going to show them how you chop wood in ten-degree weather with just a T-shirt on. For the next minute Kurt sat quiet drinking his marshmallow hot cocoa.

“So Roger,” I began as I handed my son his mug of marshmallow hot cocoa. “Your father tells me that the troop is still planning it overnight this weekend despite the cold weather.”

“Yeah, I’ll really looking forward to it. And you know what else, Mom, Mr. Sullivan and dad are going to teach us how to chop wood.”

Upon hearing Rogers statement, I burst out with laughter.

“What’s so funny, Mom?”

“Nothing Roger. Nothing. I hope you and your father have a wonderful weekend together. I’ll be here sitting in my recliner next to the fire drinking the rest of this delicious chocolate marshmallow hot cocoa.”
