The cold weather has arrived, and with it comes the holiday season. For many people, this is a time to spend with family and friends, celebrating in the warmth and comfort of their homes. But there’s nothing quite like a cup of dark hot chocolate to warm you up on a cold winter day. The endless variations of this delicious drink is what keeps me coming back for more.
A couple of years ago during the holidays, for the adults I made a Spiked White Hot Chocolate, which is a family favorite. This year, I decided to switch it up and use dark chocolate instead and the results were delightful. Whether you like your hot chocolate simple or topped with marshmallows, there’s no doubt that this delicious drink is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season.
