seeing your breath, snow that's too hard to break when you walk on it, coffee, beanies, the red tint that the cold makes your nose and cheeks, extra dramatic eye makeup, dark red lipstick, combat boots, trench coats, staying indoors
hot cocoa, candy canes, christmas music, catching snowflakes on your tongue, snow angels, still eating ice cream, fluffy scarves, extra warm jackets, mittens, fireplaces, fuzzy socks, extra large sweaters, messy buns, decorating the tree
snowball fights, sledding, coffee dates, christmas puns, sneaking out at night, advent calanders, converse even in the snow, ice skating, icicles, curled hair, earmuffs, smores, onesie pajamas, putting ridiculous things on their christmas list, changing their social media names to a pun
baking cookies, painting ornaments, reading by a fireplace, marshmallows in their hot cocoa, full-out winter gear, experimenting with makeup, fresh snow, family gatherings, watching the snow fall through a window, taking pictures of the early sunrise
In a saucepan, heat milk until hot, but not boiling. Whisk in the chocolate and the crushed peppermint candies until melted and smooth. Pour hot cocoa into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream. Serve each with a candy cane stirring stick.
