It sure is cold here in the North Pole! I like to stay wrapped in my nice, warm red coat. Even then, I get the shivers at times. Would you like to hear a way I stay toasty warm?
Well, Mrs. Claus found a great way to fix my shivers! Nothing warms me up like a nice hot cup of cocoa. Yum! Hot cocoa is a great way to get warm!
This Christmas, my hot cocoa is a little bit different though, thanks to Clumsy.
Yes, Clumsy the Elf invented a wonderful new kind of hot cocoa!
How did that happen? Well, Clumsy the Elf came in for a visit one day. He saw that Mrs. Claus was making me a big pot of hot cocoa. He got very excited.
“Yum! Hot Cocoa!” he said, jumping up and down. Jump! Jump! Bump! Oops! Splash!
Clumsy bumped a jar of peppermints that was sitting on the shelf. The peppermints fell right into Mrs. Claus’s pot and melted!
“Oh no!” I said. I thought the hot cocoa was ruined.
Then I tasted it.
It was the best hot cocoa ever! Who ever thought that melted mints would taste so good in my hot cocoa?
Nice work, Clumsy!
