Erik and I are taking a little trip up north to Grand Marais soon. We are staying in a cabin on Lake Superior and are going to have a few days of total relaxation, good food, coziness, etc.

Since I can’t enjoy wine by the fireplace in the evenings I’m planning on making homemade hot cocoa that I can sip and enjoy, maybe even as much as a glass of wine.

Here are a few delicious looking recipes I found:

Mexican hot chocolate
Hot white chocolate with ginger
Peppermint stick hot chocolate
Hot chocolate with ginger

I think the peppermint stick hot chocolate looks the best.  Yum.

In addition to sitting around and drinking hot cocoa, we’re planning on going into town for a couple good dinners, going on some walks/hikes (if it isn’t too cold), sitting around a bonfire near the lake and hopefully getting lots of sleep.  I can’t wait!

If you’ve been to Grand Marais and have any recommendations please comment and share!
