We have stepped foot into the new year, and the holidays are over; except.. winter has only begun! Many of times it seems like after Christmas is over, and the decor comes down we forget to enjoy winter for what it is. When were not shoveling piles of snow, and we have a chance to relax in our comfiest lounge wear, there will be the ultimate wintery mix of hot chocolate waiting patiently for you to get it hot on the stove top.
We need to take time for self care and relaxation in the winter time because that’s when people feel their most vulnerable. The cold weather; especially if people love the heat sometimes can make you not really feel like yourself. The goal is though, to have positivity throughout every season. You just have to know how to do the seasons right and treating yourself to a lovely mug filled with deliciousness is the most perfect way to start!!
This hot chocolate is super thick and rich. It’s luxuriously chocolatey, while having a winter vibe to it by mixing milk, and white chocolate together. When I was thinking of a cozy hot chocolate that gave me winter vibes I couldn’t help but think to use both chocolates. One chocolate to me.. is classic, but it’s not teaching anybody anything creative. Then on the other end of the spectrum, white chocolate to me is a little too sweet just on it’s own. In the end diamonds.. we’re actually getting the perfect cup of cocoa!
- Heat up a small sauce pot to medium low heat with two cups of milk. (milk of your choice.. the end result will be rich regardless)
- When the milk becomes hot.. almost reaching boiling point add.. a half a cup of milk chocolate chips, and one cup of white chocolate chips.
- Add 1 tbsp of sugar
- Add 1tbsp of cocoa powder
- Whisk all of the ingredients together until the liquid becomes thick, and very very hot. ( Only takes a few minutes )
Grab a beautiful winter mug, fill up your cup. Top it off with whipped cream, chocolate syrup (the good kind (; ) a few of both chocolate morsels, and finally an oversized snowflake marshmallow to finish it off! There wasn’t anything more fitting than topping it off with a gigantic snowflake, am I right?! [:
Enjoy your winter sipping, diamonds!
I’ll be back next week with a charcuterie board.. that you definitely won’t recognize! Oh! And don’t worry.. it will fit right into your new healthy New Years resolutions! 😉
