Best Homemade Hot Chocolate For Cold Winter Days
Down here in the south, we do not have many snow days. When we do, we make the absolute most of them! Sledding, four wheeling, snuggling under the blankets, games and HOT CHOCOLATE! Last night, we got a few inches of snow. Today has been a blast! To top it off, I made homemade hot chocolate that was AMAZING!
I figured I would share the recipe with all of you! You have GOT to try it! Other than the taste, the best part is that more than likely, you already have all the ingredients you will need to make it without another trip to the store. If you live in the south, you won’t be making any trips to the store until the snow melts! (I’m originally from Chicago so I know all of you northern and midwesterners think we are nuts but oh well… I will be “nuts” if it means all this fun!)
Check your cabinets and fridge
If you have milk, sugar, cocoa, salt, and vanilla extract you need to get it all out and make some delicious hot chocolate right now. You will NEVER buy store bought hot chocolate again! Here’s how you make it.
Homemade Hot Chocolate
