Can you believe that Thanksgiving will be here in less than two weeks?!? After that it is Christmas and poof, the years is done. I seriously don’t know where the year has gone.
Last year, one of our family resolutions was to give back as much as possible. It has been an amazing experience and has opened us up to so much more. We have done things such as beach cleanings, volunteering at the retirement home and participated in numerous food drives. Did you know that essential items such as milk are not typically donated to food banks, despite being in such high demand? Since we have a food bank close to our home, every time we are at the store we pick up a couple of extra gallons of milk and drop them off for someone in need.
If you do not have a food bank near you but you still want to help, for a small donation at pourmilklove.com, The Great American Milk Drive will deliver a gallon of milk. Or, if you are like me and like to create a holiday themed candy bar with M&M’s®, you can simply purchase 2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz bags or larger) and up to a gallon of milk will be donated to the drive! There is even a coupon available to save $1.00 off of two packages of M&M’s® Chocolate Candies, 8 oz or larger.
My kids decided this year that Santa must be tired of cookies and that we should leave him something else. I think that they are thinking that this may add them some bonus points. So we decided to test out a few recipes and these Hot Chocolate Rolls were the winner!
This roll recipe is super easy to make and tastes just like a cake due to the box of Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix we added. We then coated the dough with melted butter, cocoa powder, and M&M’s® Hot Chocolate.
Once baked, we coated them with a chocolate glaze and of course more M&M’s®! We decided that we will serve Santa a big plate of these rolls and a cup of hot chocolate. To be honest, if I were Santa I think that I may just give them those bonus points 😉
