Hot Cocoa Oatmeal

Is it just me or does hot cocoa sound amazing right now?! I pretty much want hot cocoa around the clock from now until March. I was planning out what I wanted to do for #FloatMyOatsFriday but I kept being distracted by my desire for Hot cocoa. Then BAM, the two ideas converged. How have I never thought of this before? Delicate, creamy, chocolate oats topped with fluffy marshmallows and whip. So dreamy! And since my Husband Juice is always talking about how he doesn’t want to “drink his calories” this little gem makes that hot cocoa bender a little less disastrous for the waist line. You are welcome!
