Full disclosure! The picture that I took of the hot chocolate that I made for this post did not do it justice.
And this hot chocolate recipe is outstanding! It’s thick, rich and super chocolaty.
I don’t want the picture to keep you from trying it, so this is a stock photo. It’s as easy to make this recipe as using an instant mix. And you will elevate your hot chocolate experience to another level. At home! Without paying a ton of money! Yes, I’m screaming!
Today is one of the coldest days in New England this winter. And on a similarly super cold day five years ago, I blogged a recipe for Single Serving Parisian Style Hot Chocolate.
Back then, I adapted the recipe and I’ve adapted it again. It’s a little “healthier” with less sugar and cream. Today is National Hot Chocolate Day, so it’s the perfect day to try this recipe.
