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.
First up we’re going to make our Elf mugs! So grab your plain white mugs and your stickers and simply adhere them using the transfer tape provided, you’ll want to make sure that they’re central on the mug, then rub hard onto the sticker and pull away the tape leaving behind the sticker on your mug. Repeat with however many mugs you need!
Heat up the almond milk over medium heat in a saucepan. Then add the remaining ingredients and bring to a low boil. Simmer for 2 minutes and then season to taste with cinnamon and salt!
Serve in your new, fun Elf quote mugs and enjoy! I decided to pop some Soy Whip Spray Cream on top too, just to make it extra indulgent!
Enjoy getting cosy and watching your festive films guys! Also, wouldn’t these just make the cutest Christmas presents?! Especially wrapped up with a hot chocolate kit inside! For more Christmas DIYS click here! xx
