Caramel Hot Chocolate with a Hershey's Kiss recipe with a free printable

The weather outside is pretty chilly. Sweaters, jackets, gloves and scarfs are out of storage and being worn to keep from freezing. This holiday season stay warm with this tasty beverage that will make you smile.
All you need is some delicious ingredients from your pantry. I used caramel from Mrs. Calls, because I had that on hand, but you may use any caramel candy that is at your local grocery store such as Brach's, Smucker's or Bequet Caramel ( adjust cooking time for the softer caramel). Click on the image below to get your free printable. (Thank you Jill from Sandy Toes and Popsicles for making this beautiful printable.)

Printable Recipe

Directions: Unwrap the caramel candy and pour into the cup you will be using for the final product.  Melt the caramel in the microwave by heating it for 5 seconds (time may vary depending on the caramel. Less time for Soft Caramel and for a more thick caramel add 5 seconds.) Then  pour the milk over the caramel and add the Hershey Cocoa mix. Stir all ingredients together until it is mixed well. One last time in the microwave for an additional 35 seconds to warm the milk. Take out and stir to mix the ingredients. Taste it  to make sure it is warm enough for you. Add additional time if needed, but not too much. Add the 2 kisses to make it sweet and mix well. Finish by adding your favorite dairy cream such as Cool Whip or Reddi Whip.  If you have extra Hershey kisses add one on top just because. 

Each kitchen is different and cooking times may vary.  I enjoy a hot beverage that does not burn my mouth. I have taken that into consideration in this recipe. Use your creative side when making this yummy treat.  Tip: Using bright and seasonal coffee cups can make it a little more fun. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

State Testing and a letter of encouragement

State Testing CCSS SBAC is starting next week for our area.  This semester, my son's fourth grade teacher has asked that I write him a letter of encouragement.  She gave us a few weeks notice. I have, in the past few days, written a few handwritten notes of encouragement. Then, I would wake up the next day realizing that it was not loving enough and second guessing myself. This task has been a little hard for me.  Then, the final email reminder came from the teacher. It read as follow: "This is just a friendly reminder to please send a letter of encouragement to your student to be opened this coming Monday, May 1. Students will be given the letters prior to taking their first test."  Oh my goodness, I have to get it done!!! So, I put on my big girl pants and re-wrote the letter for the 5th time. This time, I made it classroom friendly and left out lots of the I love you's and all the mushy stuff I had written before. The letter went something like this:  Dea

How to make a California Mission Model.

Learn how to make a California Mission Model at home or in the classroom. We made this project as part of the California Public School Fourth grade requirement in a group setting. Continue to read on to get the supply list and instructions for a successful mission model. On an ordinary day, I was reminded how amazing kids really are when there are no limits. Just as equally amazing are the teachers who guide them and teach them everyday.  I am very thankful for the opportunity that I was given as a parent volunteer.  The day was like a beautiful dance where parents, teachers and students came together for a common goal. The goal was to make models of California Missions from a simple picture and lots of cardboard.  I can honestly say the goal was reached and everyone deserved an "A".
