The days are getting colder, and all we want is to stay home, watch Netflix, and get all curled up in a cozy blanket along with some delicious snacks.
And what is a better fit for such a winter pass-time than a hot cup of hot chocolate? Delicious, chocolatey, deep, and comforting, hot chocolate is not only a pleasant childhood memory but a legitimate exciting drink to end the day with.
There are many ways to make hot chocolate. Some people use real chocolate, some use excellent cocoa powder and sugar, and some simply buy ready-to-use instant chocolate powder and add milk.
Here is one recipe we especially like.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup high-quality milk chocolate or excellent dark chocolate
Boil the milk and sweet cream. After boiling, melt the chocolate into the mixture and filter.
Place marshmallows and chocolate cubes in the bottom of the cup, pour the hot chocolate over them, and garnish with whipped cream.
When your hot chocolate is all done, you can add an infinite number of toppings such as espresso, white chocolate, nougat and Nutella, cinnamon, or nutmeg, and some even add salt!
