Welcome to Blogmas Day 4! We're just getting started with getting into full holiday mode on the blog. Today we're talking about something near and dear to my heart- chocolate! And not just any kind of chocolate- HOT CHOCOLATE. I got to be honest and mention I'm just slightly obsessed with this drink and all the different combos to can do to truly make it your own. There is just something about drinking a warm cup of hot chocloate on a chilly day makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I have three fun recipes lined up if you're looking to add some spice to your cup of cheer today. Let me know which one is your favorite in the comments below and tag your photos of the ones you make on Instagram! First off, each cup of hot chocolate has to start off with a good base. I am loving this hot chocolate mix from Silly Cow Farms they come in lots of flavors and is really easy to make!
The Sweet & Salty: Make your hot chocolate base as usual. Mix in a tablespoon of caramel sauce and set to the side. Grab some pretzels and crush into mini pieces (the best way I know how is to throw those bad boys into a ziplock bag and crush with a cup) top you're hot chocolate with whipped cream, pretzel pieces and a bit of caramel drizzle.
The Peanut Butter Cup: Just like the first recipe- make your hot chocolate base as usual. Microwave a tablespoon of peanut butter for 30 seconds and stir into your hot chocolate base. Top this drink with whipped cream and peanut butter chocolate candy for cuteness
The Peppermint Twist: Nothing new here, make your hot chocolate base as usual and add in 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Top this drink with cream, crushed peppermint candy and a mint leaf.
Which recipe is your favorite? Mines would be the first one, I love chocolate covered pretzels (yum!) I hope this post just made your night that much sweeter!
