READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by internetnut

A hard to resist hot chocolate recipe to warm you up. With freezing temperatures, kids and adults search for sweet treats to warm up their winters. With each steamy mug of this hot chocolate recipe, you get the chocolatey taste you crave. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.
