Sugar Plum Hot Chocolate
There's nothing quite like a good cup of hot chocolate when it's chilly out. Just a sip can take you back to your childhood, to when hot chocolate was basically your coffee. You didn't need the caffeine boost you need today as an adult, but you wanted to feel cool drink a hot drink in the wintertime. Don't you miss those days?
More often than not hot chocolate is made with some cocoa powder and milk, but our hot chocolate is the real deal. If you enjoy a thick, creamy cup of chocolate, this is the recipe for you. Make a pot of this for your friends or family and snuggle up with a nice movie, or try pairing it with our recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cake!
6 cups milk
8oz dark chocolate
1t cinnamon, cayenne, or Sugar Plum Sriracha Powder (try it!)
1t vanilla extract
1. Chop the chocolate finely, and place it in a metal bowl over a double boiler. Melt it slowly so you don't scorch it!
2. Heat the milk over low heat in a small pot. Add spices and vanilla.
3. When the chocolate is fully melted, whisk it into the warm milk until it's completely dissolved.
4. Serve hot! Top with whipped cream or marshmallows like we did. This recipe prepares 4 servings.
