***edit: I tried this the other week. I don't know how much I like it. But I have been drinking a lot of our Hot Chocolate Mix so maybe my standards are impeccably high now***
One of my first hot chocolate memories was from a trip to a certain beautiful local park. We admired the beautiful lights, soaked up the Christmas spirit, and sipped on some very hot chocolate.
..from a styrofoam cup, that tasted a little closer to cocoa powder in water with a swirl of corn syrup. Hey- back then, I was not picky, but I do remember the taste, texture, and very slight disappointment in that singular aspect of the evening #firstworldproblems
I also remember a dialogue in The Santa Claus, where an adorable, 2000 year old (thereabouts) elf explained how she made her amazing hot chocolate. Shaken, not stirred.
The cocoa syrup hot water must’ve been stirred.
This recipe, though, takes things to another level. Give it a go- I think it is elf approved.
PS- check out a nice video of this for you to enjoy!
