This past month I celebrated my anniversary and wanted to do something different from the typical love card (I always do, I’m corny, very corny!)
And since the weather has not been warm lately, I thought about making a delicious & spiced hot chocolate . But I also thought it would be so cool to have my own “trademark” of hot chocolate with different flavors/spices, so I prepared a mix with my favorite spices that I could use whenever I wanted.
Ahhh! I cannot think about the calories or fat or anything like that. Otherwise I will not enjoy thinking about the pounds I’m putting up and that’s not the idea, right? The only thing I want to do is sit on the couch, well wrapped and warm, and a gigantic cup of steaming hot chocolate in my hands.
::Spiced Hot Chocolate::
4 cups milk
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (or any cocoa powder of your choice)
¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon chipotle powder or chili powder
A pinch of nutmeg
A pinch of cayenne
Optional toppings: whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate syrup, and/or chocolate shavings.
