Need I say more?
Ok, I’ll share the recipe cause this shit was AMAZING! Just when I didn’t think hot chocolate could get any better. This was my beverage of choice during our 20″ snow storm last Tuesday. And no, I didn’t drink them all day or anything. I actually only had one. I’ve decided that shoveling snow warrants hot chocolate consumption. Always.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar (that’s my sugar choice, but you could use raw or maple syrup or other healthier options)
- 1 Tbsp cacao powder
- 1.5 Tbsp dairy-free chocolate chips (ok, fine, I added 2 Tbsp … ok, maybe heaping Tbsp)
- 1 shot of bourbon (an extra splash can’t hurt either)
Warm up almond milk on stove. Remove from heat, stir in all ingredients except the bourbon. Reheat a bit to your preference, if needed. Pour bourbon into mug. Pour chocolate mixture into mug with bourbon, and stir. I sprinkled some cinnamon on top as well. Take first sip and let orgasm commence.
What’s funny is that as I was typing out this post, I had a deja vu moment that I posted something somewhere re: homemade hot chocolate. I may be slightly obsessed.
