This would be a great gift for a neighbor or would be great for taking to a family get together. Stays warm for a long time and by the time you get to your family it will be nice and warm. I recommend using organic ingredients as much as possible. My cocoa was not organic but as soon as my cocoa is gone its in with the organic.
Note:I could not get a good picture of this no matter how I did it. I found this picture online from The Canadian Baker which is a great blog. Its packed full of amazing recipes.
