There is nothing like a warm cup of hot chocolate on a cool night. It literally gives me life. Considering, by the time I get home I’m freezing. However I’m tired of those same old instant packets you get at the store. So I took the plunge into coming up with my own recipe, and came up with this hot chocolate recipe to fill my craving. I like hot chocolate with a creamy texture but not too thick. I also want to be able to really taste the chocolate in it. This recipe hits all of that, and honestly I will never buy packaged hot chocolate again. I hope you enjoy this hot chocolate recipe as much as I do!
