Confession #26 - Hot Chocolate

Ah..... chocolate beverages.

What could be better?


And you know it.

Sweet, delicious chocolate milk.

My favorite.

But next to chocolate milk...

Confession: Hot Chocolate is the best beverage ever.

All it takes is a tiny steaming cup of hot chocolate, topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, and maybe some chocolate sauce, and you have dessert in a cup.

You don't need a lot of it,
it always tastes amazing,
there are plenty of varieties out there,
and it's good for you.

Who could hate this cup of pure happiness?

It's like drinking a rainbow.

Okay, maybe I was making up the part about it being good for you.

Naw, it's good for you.


What a nice treat!

It's officially winter.

So it's probably time to start having some hot chocolate.

You know, looking at these pictures, I know that you want to have some hot chocolate now.

If you're interested in making some from scratch, here's a recipe:

(Serves 4)

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
A pinch of salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups of milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1: Combine cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a saucepan.
2: Blend in boiling water. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes.
3: Stir in milk and heat until hot, but keeping it below a boil.
4: Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
5: Serve with a smile.
