Well we got our first beautiful snow storm today, so I guess I can start with my holiday posts!
There’s nothing better than watching snow falling, listening to Christmas music, in your pj’s, close to a fire with awesome hot cocoa!
You already know I have a thing for matching pajamas, and this time, as a bonus, I even found the most awesome hats to go with them! I have to control myself, if not they’d be wearing them everyday until Christmas! Festive pj’s are a SERIOUS addiction of mine!
I’ve got an amazing hot chocolate recipe for tonight, tomorrow or anytime during this great season that is upon us! I even got the cutest little snowman marshmallow from Chapters! This hot cocoa recipe is a rich, thick and delicious one. You may add some whipped cream and crushed candy cane for added deliciousness!
What you need:
6 oz. of Chocolats Favoris milk chocolate (or Lindt or you favorite chocolate)
1 1\2 cups of 2% milk
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of corn starch
Melt chocolate with 3 tbs of milk on medium heat.
Once melted, add the rest of the milk, cocoa powder, sugar and warm up without boiling.
Mix the corn starch with 2 tbs of the milk in a small bowl until all the lumps have disappeared. If you don’t like thick hot chocolate, skip this step. It will still taste amazing!
Add the corn starch mix to the melted milk/chocolate concoction on the stove and keep on simmering until thick.
Once its coating a wooden spoon, it is ready!
Pour in your favorite Christmas cups, garnish and enjoy with the people you love most in your pj’s!
