Today was Day #10 of Chocolate Beverage Theme Week.

It was a little cool and cloudy out, and I was feeling lethargic. So, a mug of instant hot cocoa with mini marshmallows hit the spot.  I added boiling water, and I had the whole hot chocolate experience in less than 1 minute.

This "Indulge" set, designed and distributed by Coastal Cocktails (Irvine, CA), came complete with one mug, one packet of marshmallows, and two packets of hot cocoa mix. (It's always good to have a spare or share packet on hand.)
