DIY ELF QUOTE MUGS + VEGAN HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE

Ok, let’s talk about Christmas movies for a second! What’s your favourite?! Which one really gives you all the Christmas feels?! For me, it’s Home Alone and Love Actually but maybe you’re more of a Elf kinda person? Or maybe you prefer the classics like It’s a Wonderful Life! There’s SO MANY good ones am I right?!

Here’s a fun fact for you though, Emily has never watched Home Alone or Elf!! Can we all just take a second to process that?! I mean WHAATT?! I know what you’re thinking, how are the two of you even friends right now?! Well, I’m going to have to kidnap her this Christmas and force her to watch them haha in fact, I might just whip up a batch of this vegan hot chocolate while I’m there and make a fun Christmas themed evening of it! Complete with Elf quote mugs of course! Here’s how you can make your own…

YOU WILL NEED: (SERVES 4)

  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk // 3 Tbsp cocoa powder // 1 tsp pure maple syrup // 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract // 1 pinch ground cinnamon // 1 pinch sea salt //
  • Plain white mugs // Elf quote vinyl stickers* //

* If you’d rather make the Elf quote vinyl stickers instead of buying them then of course you can! You just need a cutting machine like the Cricut Maker and vinyl in the colour of your choice, simply type in the quotes you want it cut out in the Cricut Design space and let the machine cut them out for you! Alternatively, if you’d like to cut this step out then you can just purchase the stickers here.
