I participated in Mom Blog Tour Winter Fancy Food Show (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Two Rivers Coffee products to facilitate my review, but my opinions and the recipe are my own.
Just when we thought we were going to escape winter without a major snow storm, we get hit! Instead of breaking out the short-sleeve tees and flip flops, I was pulling out hot chocolate to warm up the boys after playing in the snow.
I love that they equate snow days to hot chocolate because it’s a childhood memory that I have myself. I always make sure I have some hot chocolate waiting for them when they finally come in from sledding.
Since they have been asking for hot chocolate a lot this week, I decided to take their favorite drink and turn it into a warm and gooey dessert. Yup, I’m talking Hot Chocolate Dump Cake.
You can whip this up while the kids are outside sledding and have it ready with a cup of hot chocolate. It’s super simple to make and I think we are going to have a new favorite snow day snack.
The best part? You can use any flavor hot chocolate to change this up. Thanks to Two Rivers Coffee line of Tootsie Roll Hot Chocolates, you can make just about any flavor cake. Take the classic route and use Tootsie Roll for a super chocolaty taste. Or use Junior Mints for a Mint Chocolate Chip Cake.
Hot Chocolate Dump Cake
Now, there’s another way to enjoy the perfectly chocolaty treats from the entire Tootsie Roll family of candies which include Junior Mints, Charleston Chew, Sugar Babies, and Andes Mints.

I am still processing our family Disney trip from a few a weeks ago. We did so many things and there are so many things I want to share with you! Tips and tricks I picked up during our first trip to Disney.
But first, I want to share with you what was probably the highlight of my boys’ trip: Jedi Training at Hollywood Studios.
When we were planning our trip, this was the #1 thing they wanted to do. In fact, they have been dreaming of doing this for a while now. And it truly was an amazing experience for everyone.
Watch our video below to get a glimpse what Jedi Training is all about and then read on for our tips for a successful training.
Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple
Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple (previously known as Jedi Training Academy) is a guest experience based on the Jedi teachings found in the Star Wars series, located next to Star Tours–The Adventures Continue in the Echo Lake area at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Get there early!
Availability is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. So you want to make sure you get to Hollywood Studios before it opens. We were there by 8:30 and immediately got in line for Jedi Training. The sign up location is next to the Indiana Jones themed gift shop neighboring 50’s Prime Time Cafe. Slots for this show fill up FAST (usually within the first hour), and it’s easier to guarantee your little ones a show spot the earlier you are to sign up.
We waiting maybe 15 minutes and got a 1:45 time slot.
Keep the Kids in Line
Whoever wants to complete the Jedi Training needs to be in line. Kids ages 4 through 12 can participate in the training. When you get to the front of the line, they will ask each child their age and also a series of questions like “Can you follow directions?” “Will you follow the rules?” and “Are you ready to be a Jedi?”
Be Early for Traning
When you receive your time slot, you will be told to report back 30 minutes prior. This allows cast members to get the kids lined, hand out Jedi robes, and go over the rules. Parents should stay with their children. However…
Have Someone Save a Seat
Only one parent needs to stay with your child so send the other over to the stage to grab a great seat!
Get the PhotoPass
Photographers are all around the stage taking photos of each child. You will be given a PhotoPass card to view your photos. If you are using the Disney App, you can skip waiting in line to view your photos and pull them right up on your phone.
Normally, I frown upon appliances as a present. But there are times when I make some exceptions. Like when my husband surprised me with a KitchenAid Mixer for Christmas! I have been longing for a KitchenAid Mixer for years but we never really had the room for it.
Yes, I have been baking with a hand mixer all these years. And it’s worked out fine. But I was ready for the jump in mixers.
I couldn’t just stop at the Stand Mixer when I got it. I knew there were a ton of attachments for the mixer. I knew I could turn my mixer into an ice cream machine, a pasta machine, a food processor, and so on and so on. I was gonna take full advantage of that puppy!
In the past few months, I have been adding to my KitchenAid Attachment collection. I couldn’t just keep them to myself so here are my 10 Must-Have KitchenAid Mixer Attachments! (I even threw in a bonus at the end!)
