With the last few days of Christmas decorations still being up, I wanted to end the holiday season with a little cheer.  You may have seen my first post sharing this Sprout computer by HP, but I wanted to share the amazing scanning capabilities with you guys while also sharing a cute little cocoa recipe!

I was making some hot cocoa to enjoy a mug on our last night with our Christmas tree, and I wanted it to be extra festive because I mean… if it it looks cute it tastes better, right? Plus a tasty drink always helps me when I’m trying to be creative.  Preferably one with a little booze.  Just kidding.

Not kidding.

I thought I would sprinkle the rim of the mug and using honey and leftover Christmas sprinkles (you can also use corn syrup or melted chocolate = yum).  Simply dip the mug in honey, then dip in sprinkles.  I used a small baking funnel to pour the hot cocoa in the mug (as to not splash the sprinkles) and finished it off with a candy cane.  Voila!

How cute would this be with colorful sprinkles and coffee on a birthday?  Or is that just me?


So easy, so cute.  I’m not going to lie that I was sad to see our Christmas tree go, but it’s nice to have the space back again.  And let’s be honest, when the tree is dead and pine needles are everywhere, it makes letting go of the tree a little less painful.  What was more sad was going on a New Years Day jog with Christian and enjoying the Orange Circle Christmas decorations for what I knew would be the last time.  When they were putting them up I called Christian on the way to work to tell him they were PUTTING UP THE TREE IN THE CIRCLE, and I literally sounded like a 7-year-old with excitement.  Until next year!!

Thank y’all for reading – and tell me, who’s going to sprinkle their mug for their next cocoa?  C’mon, you know you want to.

    1. Ok THAT sounds amazing – must try. Thanks for the tip from the beer expert!!

  1. I seriously can’t believe you can just scan those items right on and they appear like that on the computer!! So cool!! The presentation is amazing, but I’m sure it tastes incredible!! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

  2. Your pictures are ALWAYS on point…Fabulous and Perfect!!!!

    I’ve been researching this and have been wondering (because CNET doesn’t speak on it) if you’re able to do ‘normal’ stuff with Sprout. I’ve only read about the fun, creative capabilities. Let me know!!!

    Beautiful photos!!!

    1. And you’re always the nicest! GREAT question. YES – this also functions as a normal computer. It has a touchscreen keyboard, and also comes with a normal wireless keyboard and mouse. It serves double duty!

    1. I’m so amazed with some of the posts too! I feel like I’m barely skimming the surface of what all this baby can do!

  3. Your pictures are always so great! How do you make them appear so large on the blog? Even when I make mine “X-large” they still seem small on my page. Any tips? Thanks!!

    1. Thanks Anna! I actually size the photos to a particular pixel size and then upload them to my blog in their original size so they’re all lined up in width if that makes sense!

  4. Oh, I just love this idea! Yes, perfect with alcohol, haha! Seriously though would be perfect for my little girl London. Thanks for sharing! Happy Hump Day!

  5. This is so pretty and festive!! I’d definitely try it for other celebrations too – like birthdays etc! Actually Ty’s birthday is this coming Monday so I’m gonna whip out the sprinkles then!

  6. This HP Sprout thing is amazing! I can’t believe that it can scan those things. What a cool idea and great post! The sprinkle idea is adorable, I only wish I’d known about it for Christmastime. But I’m seeing red, pink and white sprinkled hot chocolate in my future, maybe with a little Baileys!? Not kidding! 😉
