5 Ingredient Hot Chocolate For Two

To greet a new year, I thought of a great recipe for the winter, HOT CHOCOLATE!☕

This hot chocolate serves two and only has five ingredients!

I got this idea from my little sister, except I changed a few things to make it my own. Her recipe is called, “White Hot Chocolate“.

Fun Fact: It is believed that hot chocolate was first made by the Mayan people about 2,000 years ago.

Wow! Interesting🤔

Anyway, here are the ingredients to this delightful drink!

serves 2

Ingredients

2 cups milk (of your choice)

7-13 drops of stevia

1/8 tsp sea salt

4 Tbsp chocolate chips

1 tsp coconut sugar

Instructions

Make sure you use room temperature chocolate (it will melt easier!).

Place sauce pan on stove, and set at low heat.

Pour the 2 cups of milk in.

Add in salt, stevia, sugar, and chocolate chips, then whisk vigorously. Don’t stop till all the little chocolate bits are melted.

Once done, pour into a cup. Add the marshmallows and whip cream, now you can ENJOY!🤩

Rainbow Leaf Drawing

When I made this, I had no idea what I was doing.

Since I am home-schooled, my mom sends us work on the computer.

For one of my assignments, I had to copy drawings of plants from a link my mom sent me, then I had to color them. I made all different kinds of plants on different pieces of paper. This also was for fun, I have much harder work than this. Anyway, I started to outline a plain leaf rainbow colors over and over again. In the end it was a beautiful piece of artwork! That is why I am sharing it with all of you!

I will be doing a step by step “presentation”.

STEP ONE

Draw a plant in the center. Press the word LINK to see where I got my leaf from. If you don’t like any of those plants, you can draw your own shape or plant!

STEP TWO

With markers, outline the plant red, then orange, then yellow, green, blue, and purple.

STEP THREE

Repeat the pattern over and over and over again until it fills the page.

Once it fills the page, you’re done! Easy peasy! Hope you like it!

MERRY CHRISTMAS Snowman!

I can’t believe it! 2 more days till Christmas! The holidays go by so fast!

Hope this Christmas is snowy. I love snow! In Arizona, we don’t get much snow, because it’s the hottest state in the USA! At least to me it is. When we get snow, I try to make snowmen, but we don’t have that “good snow” in order to make one. I love to paint snowmen though! That’s what this painting’s about.

The instructions are down there, not up here!

Instructions

Paint the background a light blue.

On the left corner of the painting, paint a big white ball for the bottom half of the snowman.

On top paint a smaller ball for the head.

Paint a big, black top hat on the head.

Paint the eyes, mouth, and the nose (a carrot) on the face.

Paint the buttons on the bottom half.

Paint a brown hand on the side of his body.

Next to the snowman, paint, with black paint, MERRY CHRISTMAS. If you’d like, you can add a red ornament on the writing like I did.

I hope you like it! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah!

Merry Christmas Tree Painting

Gather ’round everyone! It’s time to celebrate the birth of our Lord.

Today, I have painted a beautiful Christmas tree. I feel like this is a very creative painting, and I hope you do too!

On the other hand, since it’s Christmas, my family and I have a tradition! Every year, after Thanksgiving, an elf arrives to watch us till Christmas time. It’s fun for the little ones. I help out a lot😉.

I love opening presents, and eating a bunch of food. Yum, yum!

If you want to know how to paint this tree, scroll down!

Instructions

Paint the background a light blue.

CAUTION: Let dry before you do anything else!

In the center of the of the canvas, paint a long, brown vertical line. It should be about 4 inches.

Next, paint brown branches from the sides of the trunk.

Add light green, green, sea green, and dark green leaves all over the branches. (Pretty much any type of green you can think of).

On the edge of the branches, paint a bit of white on each one for the snow.

Add tiny yellow dots for the Christmas lights all over the tree. NOT TOO MANY THOUGH!

Paint red and white ornaments on the tree as well.

Paint a big, bright yellow star on the top of the tree.

Take a bit of white paint on to your paint brush and dab it at the bottom of the tree. This makes it look like snow, you could even pretend it was floating on a cloud!

HERE ARE THE THINGS THAT ARE OPTIONAL: you can paint snowflakes in the back, presents at the bottom of the tree, Christmas lights on the top of the canvas, etc.

ENJOY, and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Single Served Pumpkin Pie Mug Cake

Sorry this post came out after Thanksgiving, my mom forgot to send me my picture of the mug cake. At least now I can share it with you all!

Abstract Turkey

10 more days till Thanksgiving (and 10 more days till I turn 12)! Turning 12 isn’t very special, because you’re waiting to turn 13 next year!

Today, I have made a very cool😎 looking abstract turkey! It has got so many different colors.

Here are the complicated (but not too complicated) directions!

Instructions

Paint background a yellow-brown color.

Let it dry.

First, paint the beak. Dab colors: red, yellow, and orange, with paint brush. Don’t use a tiny paintbrush.

I finally figured out what it’s called! Paint the wattle (click on the link so you know what it is) red, pink, and just a bit of white. Try not to mix the colors.

Paint the turkey’s body. By doing that, dab different colors like red , brown, light blue, dark blue, dark green, orange, yellow, pink, and a bit of white. Dab into the shape of a turkey.

Paint 8 back feathers of the turkey. Paint them red, orange, yellow, and a dark brown.

Now your all done! Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving Turkey Painting

I can’t believe Halloween is over, but more holidays are coming up, like Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving!

The thing that sucks this year is……. my birthday is on Thanksgiving!! That’s right. I can’t have my birthday and Thanksgiving on the same day, so we are celebrating my birthday on Thanksgiving, and then we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving the next day.

My 2 favorite foods to have on Thanksgiving are pumpkin pie and turkey! YUM!! Not together of course.

My favorite thing to do on Thanksgiving is EAT!

That’s pretty much all you do on Thanksgiving! Once you sit down after those 4 hours of cooking, it feels pretty darn good.

Today, I have painted a painting. I had no idea what I was going to do at first, but then it hit me! A turkey…….(angels singing). LOL.

Here are the instructions on how to paint this painting!

Instructions

Paint whole canvas a light yellow. Leave it to dry.

Paint a light brown bird shape in the center of the canvas.

Paint yellow beak on the birds face, including the red thingy down his face. Sorry, I don’t know what it’s called.

Paint a white oval at the side of the face for the eye.

Next, paint the iris (whatever color you please. I used green).

Then, the pupil on top of the iris.

Last but not least, a tiny white circle on the pupil.

Paint 8 of the back feathers. Red, yellow, orange, and brown.

Create a little pilgrim hat on the head of the Turkey.

On the body of the Turkey, paint with a darker brown for the wing.

Paint 2 long orange legs.

On the top of the canvas, write HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

For decoration, paint pumpkins, leaves, and whatever else you’d like to add!

Now that you are done, ENJOY! 🙂
