Winter is officially here, and what better way to enjoy the season than sipping a rich and creamy cup of hot chocolate while cozied up in a blanket reading a good book. Ah, now that is the way to spend a quality afternoon!
Although I am perfectly happy with a packet of Swiss Miss, I am always down for a “real” recipe. So, I went on a little Pinterest search for an amazingly good cocoa recipe, and oh man, I found a ton of them. It is dessert in a cup! I saved 10 of them for sharing here with you because these definitely need to be shared.
I love anything that I can dump in the crockpot and eat (or drink!) later! Imagine your house smelling like chocolate-y goodness for the next few hours…
If you want your hot chocolate with a gooey caramel drizzle, this is the recipe for you. A little side note, this post explains the difference between hot chocolate and hot cocoa, the more you know, right?
My husband is craaaaazy about Nutella! I’m not saying that I don’t love it, but he really really loves it. This recipe gets his seal of approval with two thumb’s up.
Want to add a fun twist to your cup? How about making your drink pink!
This recipe takes a bit more time to make because your ingredients have to sit in the fridge for several hours, but the end result is a rich chocolate concoction with a little bite from the chili pepper for the more adventurous sipper 😉
This one is for my little guy because he loves everything cookies and cream! It generally tends to be a little too sweet for my taste, but he can’t get enough of it.
Hot chocolate for grown-ups! This one can be mommy’s special hot chocolate, much too good for children. 😀
White hot chocolate is so pretty, it looks like winter in a cup 🙂
If you have ever wished that you could drink a Reese’s then this recipe is for you! Hot chocolate was made to be combined with peanut butter!
I’m not vegan, but I like to inclusive around these here parts. So, here you go my vegan friends, you can let me know how it comes out.
My apologies in advance if this post leads to a new hot chocolate addiction. Moderation is key my friends, don’t try to drink them all at once!
Are you a hot chocolate lover?
