Gourmet Hot Chocolate
When the weather gets cold, I love cuddling up on the couch with a blanket and enjoying a yummy hot beverage like hot chocolate. Places like Starbucks make some delicious drinks, but can drain your wallet. You can make your own “gourmet” drink right at home! Here are some things you will need:
– hot chocolate mix
– flavored creamer or milk
– whipped cream
– chocolate syrup
You don’t have to buy name brand mix. I suggest finding a dark chocolate mix. I do not prefer dark chocolate in bar form, but as a hot chocolate flavor it is soooo delicious. Make your mix according to the directions. You can warm milk on the stove to make it creamier, or you can add flavored creamer. I love using Peppermint Mocha to create a mint hot chocolate drink.
As a topping, you can add marshmallows or whipped cream with chocolate syrup drizzled on top. And you just created a gourmet drink at home! Enjoy!
