DIY 4-Ingredient Hot Cocoa Mix


With all of the freezing cold weather (and even snow days) we’ve been having around here lately, I’ve been absolutely relying on hot drinks! I leave for work each morning with a thermos full of tea (Republic of Tea is awesome), and I conclude my day with 1-2 more mugs of either chamomile tea or chai. 🙂
