Peanut Butter Cup Cocoa 

This peanut butter cup cocoa is a peanut butter and chocolate lover's delight. It's indulgent and sweet and the Nutella and the cream combine to make the cocoa very silky and smooth. For extra sweetness, I've piled on whipped cream and a few drizzles of toffee sauce. Yeah, I went there.

The really special thing about this cocoa though, is the whimsical mug it's served in! The mug and tea towel pictured in these photos are products from Gone Crabbing, a British range of coastal inspired clothing and giftware. I absolutely adore these products; they're beautiful and fun. The vibrant and bright colors are eye-catching and the soap is great! It lathers really well and it smells fantastic!

So this soap is really "Totally Clawsome". It smells amazing and it's so creamy and smooth! Check out all of the soap Gone Crabbing has to offer! They've got a bar called Mussel Man that would make a perfect stocking stuffer for the man in your life! I've got my eye on the Beauty on the Beach soap for my mom and the Crab on a Rope for my brother's Christmas stocking.

And just look at those cute crabs! :) One of the things I love most about the Gone Crabbing products is that they're so fun and beachy! I always associate the beach with good times and fun. There's nothing better than relaxing at a beach. Living in Manchester's busy city center, we're miles away from the beach, but that mug and tea towel bring an unexpected brightness to my kitchen. Perfect for boosting the spirits during dreary winter weather. Gone Crabbing has loads of items: from beach towels to kitchen goodies, clothes for children and adults to stationery. If you need a gift for someone who loves the beach, then Gone Crabbing has got you covered this year.
