Who doesn't love hot chocolate?

It's winter time and hot chocolate is the perfect drink to compliment the season...and temperature. A classic cup is fine but let me share two twists on this traditional beverage.



A good friend of mine told me about this years ago and I normally get it from Starbucks but decided to conquer the recipe myself. You'll need:

2 cups Eggnog

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tps sugar




Try sweetening your hot chocolate with some condensed milk. It adds the perfect flavor and makes the beverage nice and creamy. You'll need:

2 cups milk (I use whole)

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup condensed milk


Pour milk (or eggnog) into small saucepan on medium-low heat. Once milk begins to bubble slightly, add remaining ingredients and whisk until combined. Pour into mug, top with marshmallows (optional), and enjoy!

*I prefer making hot chocolate on the stove top; I think it's quicker but a microwave can be used as well.



Which one is your fave? I'd love to hear what you think!
