Homemade Hot Chocolate

Who likes hot chocolate? 

Me too. 

Let’s face it. There’s just no better way to warm up a frosty winter’s day than to wrap your hands (and mouth) around a cup of pipping hot chocolate.  

Absolute bliss. 

But I have a question for you… have you ever made your own hot chocolate? 

Me either.

Until recently.

You see my sister has this dear friend Amy, who happens to be a fabulous cook, and who was sweet enough to send me some of her scrumptious homemade goodies last year including a lovely jar of homemade hot chocolate.

I couldn’t believe that one scoop of this unassuming powdered hot chocolate, added to a cup of hot water, could be so incredibly glorious.

Needless to say I needed the recipe.

And let me just tell you that isn’t very often my hand holds the cup of anything but my beloved coffee. But after putting my lips up to this sweet and creamy, velvety and chocolaty, decadent hot chocolate, I simply can’t help myself.

Indulging in this deliciousness seems almost criminal.

Sometimes I even plop a dollop of marshmallow fluff on top.

And you know what? Before the fluff even has time to melt, my mind has forgotten all about the cold and dreary, and finds itself enveloped in the sweet and creamy dreamy.

And that’s what a cold winter’s day should be all about anyway, dontcha think?

(Please don’t tell my coffee.)

Here’s the yummy recipe…

Adding a skosh of cayenne pepper to the mix adds just a hint of spice that is sure to warm things up. It’s delish. I’ve been making this recipe for years … sometimes we add bitty chocolate morsels to the mix just for kicks … decadent I’m telling you!

Marshmallow fluff in a steaming mug of hot chocolate! Why is it that no one has thought of that before? Brilliant! :>)
