‘Decadent hot Chocolate for those cozy Christmas movie nights’
This rich and thick chocolate is not your everyday hot drink but it is the kind of treat that you have once a year, as Christmas eve is just around the corner. This warm cup is meant to be sipped on slowly and luxuriously feeling the velvety sweetness hit the back of your palette. Each sip is like drinking a bar of heavenly chocolate as the recipe calls for heavy cream and good quality chocolate.
Basically, snap a piece of your favorite dark chocolate bar and add it into a saucepan with heating heavy cream. I added about 1/3 of a standard size bar (so maybe about 9 pieces) and 2 cups of cream. 1 cup of cream per person. While the chocolate slowly melts into the cream, add a pinch of cinnamon and stir in a little bit of vanilla paste for flavor. Add the smallest pinch of salt to elevate the sweetness and create depth into the flavor. Add sugar if necessary, but I did not need any more as the chocolate was rather sweet. Now, put on your pj’s and pour the hot chocolate into your favorite mug and cuddle up for an evening of Christmas classics. If you have not decorated your tree yet, this hot chocolate is the perfect company for that.
