Hot chocolate recipe and comfy clothes!

Holy smokes has it been cold! I can’t stand it. I made some hot chocolate to bring a few light hearted happy moment to an otherwise long and freezing {high of 5 degrees} Sunday.

This is real, old fashioned hot chocolate, made with {of course} dutch chocolate. I mean, are you seriously making those packets of who- knows -what ingredients with tiny freeze dried little marshmallows?

According to the recipe on the Droste box, you make a paste in the mug with sugar, chocolate and a little milk. Then after you warm up the rest of the milk, you add it to the mug. It’s rich, creamy and delicious {and with out all those ingredients you can’t pronounce.}

I can’t lie, these fancy marshmallows, toasted, didn’t make it worse…

Just pop those suckers under the broiler for a quick bit. Do not walk away from the oven because they will burn and set the smoke alarm on fire in a second!

More cold days in the forecast, high of 3 this Sunday, better stock up on some hot chocolate supplies!
