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” hot chocolate recipe.
So, I went on a little Pinterest search for an amazingly good sipping recipe, and oh man, I found a ton of them. It is dessert in a cup! I saved ten of them for sharing here with you because these definitely need to be shared.
