Welcome to winter! This time of year is one of my favorites. Warm sweaters, boots, fire in the wood stove, and lots of cuddles. And trying new hot chocolate recipes too! One of the best things!
You already know how much I adore coffee. It’s no secret. Lattes and fair trade coffee from around the world are some of my favorite ways to warm up during freezing winter nights.
But there is just something magical about a hot cup of cocoa. Did you realize there are actually more than a few ways to make hot chocolate? You have to try a few of these recipes. Maybe even do a hot cocoa recipe contest at your next holiday party.
You’ll be so happy you tried them!
