My kids arrive home from the school, and the first thing they ask for on these chillier days is a hot chocolate and a cookie (or 4!). It's that comforting drink to warm up and feel cozy whether it's after a bike ride home from school, a long walk on a blustery day, or a snuggle on the sofa on a Sunday afternoon.
I have great memories of drinking the most amazing chocolate drinks in Madrid during the Huzz and my first wedding anniversary. Breakfast was the thickest chocolate drink - where the spoon really could stand up by itself - alongside with warm freshly made churros! Mmmm! No calories there at all!
My kids don't get that kind of chocolate indulgence, but I do like to throw on some mini-marshmallows, whipped cream and a dusting of chocolate powder. That puts a smile of their faces before homework begins! This chart gives you lots of ideas to pimp your hot chocolate this winter, be it with a touch of chilli pepper, Baileys, Nutella, or even Lavender which sounds amazing.
