The best part of snow days is the no school part (obvs), but the excuse to stay inside and cozy up with delicious snacks is half the fun. Here are three recipes that will have you melting away those snowflakes in no time. These snacks work equally as great on rainy days. (Or any days.)

HOT CHOCOLATE with MARSHMALLOW SNOWMAN

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any type of milk)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened (can use raw cacao powder)
  • 3 tsp coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (can sub stevia)
  • 1 scoop vital proteins, optional
  • 1/2 tsp maca powder, optional

Directions

  1. Mix dry ingredients in a mug.
  2. Pour warm milk over mixture, mixing thoroughly. Add more sweetener as desired.
  3. For marshmallow, cut a large marshmallow in half. With melted chocolate and a toothpick, create a face. Use half of an orange jelly bean for the nose.

SNOWBALL PIZZA

Ingredients

  • refrigerated biscuit dough
  • marinara sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese or string cheese cut into discs
  • optional toppings
  • melted butter with chopped garlic
  • parmesan cheese for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Open biscuits and separate. Flatten each biscuit with your fingers. Lay a bit of sauce, cheese and toppings, being careful not to get close to the edge.
  2. Pinch up the edges of the biscuit to form a ball. Lie seam-side down on the tray. Brush with garlic butter. Bake at 475 for about 15 minutes. 3. Dust with parmesan cheese.

SNOWFLAKE TORTILLAS

Ingredients

  • flour tortillas
  • melted butter
  • sugar and cinnamon mixture

Directions

  1. Fold tortilla in half and in half again. Using clean kitchen scissors cut a snowflake just as you would with paper.
  2. Toast lightly in toaster or oven. Brush with melted butter and dust with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
