Here’s a little something in honor of yesterday’s announcement. Not only is this hot chocolate “Italian” (thereby conjuring up dreams of sunny Positano), its warmth makes it perfectly suited to the dreary weather we’ve been having here in DC. So to boil it down for you (no pun intended), I can’t think of a better beverage recipe to share with you. But, more than just my good timing, what I find particularly remarkable and telling of just how tasty this is is the fact that I generally shy away from bittersweet/dark-chocolate anything, and yet found this minimally sweet, maximally chocolate drink to be quite delicious. I’m a milk-chocolate girl through and through, but even I can appreciate the beauty of a smooth and thick cup of bittersweet hot chocolate.
Now, what makes a hot chocolate “Italian”? Follow along and I promise to tell you.
I had every intention of posting a healthy smoothie recipe, because let’s face it, I need one and have no business making and drinking decadent hot chocolates. But it’s cold and I’m a baby, and with a recurring series devoted to fried food, you’re not coming to this blog for the leafy greens. So hot chocolate it is. And since I’m already throwing caution to the wind, I thought I’d share the richest, most delicious hot chocolate there is. Stop reading now if you’re trying to cut back on sugar and happiness. Proceed at your own risk, but I really hope you do.
There’s no denying it. It’s going to get a whole lot colder before it gets warmer. So, on this Thirsty Thursday, I thought I’d revisit some of my favorite hot chocolate recipes for warming up to. Plus, the Facebook page recently hit 800 likes – quite a big feat, so please join me in raising a mug full of hot chocolate to our newfound friends. Cheers!
I haven’t posted a Thirsty Thursday in a while now, so today’s post is me easing my way back into the swing of things. Read: super easy.
As I said earlier this week, I’ve been keeping warm by alternating between green tea lattes and hot chocolate, so it was only a matter of time before I decided to combine the two. You know, for efficency’s sake.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I don’t care for eggnog. It’s just. so. weird. Whipped eggs in spiced, sweet milk & cream? Ugh. And yet, it’s so quintessentially Christmas that I always feel a little bad that I don’t include it in my holiday-food routine. Well, guess what. Always is in for a surprise, because I’ve found an eggnog drink that works for me and it’s called eggnog white hot chocolate. Thirsty Thurday’s back with a vengeance.
