Hot Chocolate Mix recipe at the Parish House Inn still looks like winter here.  Unfortunately the back parking area has become a sheet of ice, so getting a car out is a challenge.  But...the good news is that February is almost over.  I am looking forward to March and hopefully warmer temperatures.
In the meantime, there is always something to do inside.  This recipe for a hot chocolate mix will warm you up and even help you sleep.  I hope you enjoy it. This makes a huge amount, so it is great for gift-giving as well.  Be sure to add the recipe!

               HOT CHOCOLATE MIX

1 8 quart box powdered milk
1 6 ounce jar non dairy coffee creamer
1 2 pound box Quik (chocolate drink mix)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Store in a tightly covered container.  To serve, add boiling water to 2 - 4 teaspoons of the mix.  Top with marshmallows or whipped cream.

Valentine's Day Ideas from the Parish House Inn bed and breakfast

Valentines Day celebration

Valentine's Day brings out the romance in all of us, doesn't it?  The grocery stores, candy shops, florists, jewelry stores and others are all out there with suggestions for you.  
Over the years we have had many couples spend their Valentine's Day in one of our guestrooms.  We always supply the chocolate dipped strawberries and sparking non-alcoholic beverages.  Of course we can always add additional items like roses and chocolates if desired.   We can make dinner reservations and always reccomend near-by Haab's for a quiet, romantic location.
Or maybe you just want to order a pizza and stay in your room to watch a movie from our DVD collection. We can arrange that as well. 
After a restful night's sleep, our special breakfast of heart shaped pancakes and bacon, coffee and fruit will be waiting for you. 
Can't get away right now? A gift certificate from the Parish House Inn will work.  You and your sweetheart can book your stay for a more convenient time.
Just call 734-480-4800 or book your room from our website
