Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe

Hot Chocolate is a perfect beverage for winters. It’s refreshing, warm, and very comforting on those chilly evenings in winter time!

Mexican Hot Drink tastes great too – I’ve tried it out when I was having some cough problems last week and my voice became smoother after drinking this yummy drink.

I followed Laura Vitale’s recipe, slightly modifying it to my preference and the result was nothing short of amazing!
