Hot Chocolate-delicious, fun, festive!

You can buy hot chocolate and spend a lot of money-or you can make it yourself at home, save money, and have fun with the family.  My family makes hot chocolate using plain chocolate syrup, or those hot chocolate powdered packages.  (I've tried melting chocolate and doing it from scratch...honestly, like brownies, the store bought stuff is pretty good, cheaper, quicker)
The using milk.  Forget using water-you'll never get that rich, creamy, and delicious taste without milk.  We like to use 1% or 2% milk.  Warm the milk in a pot on the stove, or simply pop it into the microwave for 1.5 minutes.  Stir in the chocolate.  Here's the clincher...adding the whipped cream makes it AMAZING.  There's just something about the milk and the cream that just can't be beat. We use the whipped cream from Costco. I put out different candy sprinkles-different colors, shapes, etc. for the different holidays.  The kids have fun decorating their hot chocolate.  It looks as good as it tastes!
