There’s something about a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day that just makes me (and I’m sure just about everyone) all warm and fuzzy inside.
Am I the only one who dislikes snow? Seriously.. I absolutely can’t stand it. It has been so cold here in New Jersey the past couple of weeks. Thank god the snow is melting!
Anyway, back to the hot chocolate. This is really just the most deliciously rich, hot chocolate. Out of all of the recipes I have found, I never could find one that is just the right amount of sweet + chocolate. Just top it with some homemade whipped cream and you have an award winning drink right here.
This whipped cream is just a basic recipe and can be used on pretty much anything or straight up on a spoon if that’s what you’re into. I actually don’t like whipped cream very much. But, this whipped cream is so finger-licking sweet and vanilla-ey I couldn’t help myself from stealing spoonfuls from the bowl as i made it! (Whoops.)
Now, go get some more logs for the fireplace, curl up on the couch and enjoy this yummy drink!
