hot chocolate

 

Now that it is finally getting cold outside my kids have started asking for hot chocolate again. Recently I did this post on Momfilter but thought I would share it here too.  

 

Making hot chocolate from scratch is so easy if you have a bar of dark or milk chocolate. A serrated knife works well for chopping the chocolate--it produces little shards that melt very quickly. A few spoonfuls are all you need...just stir it into barely simmering milk.  One of the nice things about this method is that you can really control how sweet and rich your hot chocolate is based on personal preference...a little dark chocolate gives a lot of flavor but is far less sugary than most commercial mixes.

 

A dollop of freshly whipped cream is my favorite topping but my kids love marshmallows. Soon I will post about making your own.
