How fun are the holidays?! I definitely try to do as much as I can as far as getting in my holiday baking. Today's post is just that! Ideas for decorating cupcakes, a delicious hot chocolate recipe, AND you can enter a giveaway to win one of eight KitchenAid® mixers! All you have to do is vote on your favorite photo of recipes that haven't been entered.



I went out to my local Walmart to pick up these great products from my baking needs. I grabbed a gallon of 2% Great Value milk, M&M's® Hot Chocolate, M&M's® Holiday Milk Chocolate, Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix, and, Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Vanilla Flavored Frosting. Here is a COUPON to save $1.00 on ANY TWO (2) M&M's® Chocolate Candies, 8 oz or larger. I'm so excited to share these ideas with you because everything was just so yummy!



I first followed the instructions to make cupcakes with the Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix. One of my favorite smells is when cake is baking in the oven. Mmmm.


I got everything out and ready to start decorating!


Here are three ideas to decorate your cupcakes. I've got a Christmas tree, an ornament, and a wreath.

Now for the HOT CHOCOLATE! I love sitting on the couch curled up with a blanket, watching a Christmas movie, and sipping on a cup of hot chocolate! They have a limited kind M&M's® Hot Chocolate that I used to make the hot chocolate.
I first put 1/2 cup of them in a food processor to grind them down as much as I could. It's ok if there are some larger pieces.

I added 1 cup of milk and added the M&M's® Hot Chocolate and let it heat up and melt down the rest of the larger pieces. Stir often.

Pour into your favorite mug! This hot chocolate was so good. I will honestly be making it this way again. It was very rich which I really enjoy.

Recipe

-1/2 cup  M&M's® Hot Chocolate
-1 cup 2% Great Value milk

Part of this season is to give back. When you purchas2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz bags or larger) up to a gallon of milk will be donated to The Great American Milk Drive. When I think of  donating to a food drive I think of giving canned or boxed items, but one of the most asked for items is milk. A lot of children and families are missing out on the essential nutrients that's in milk. You can also make a small donation HERE.




What would you make with these items?! Here are some more ideas and also HERE is an idea for a M&M's® Holiday Snowflake Cookies recipe.
