Our Favorite Hot Chocolate Recipes

A large winter storm is blowing across the northern half of the nation. I am watching snow fall and wondering how many times my kids will ask for hot chocolate when they get off the school bus. Would they be happy with Ovaltine or Nestle? Sure. But would that be worthy of a blog? No Way!  Let’s do this right…

As I sifted through my favorite blogs and foodie sites, I came across some wonderful looking ideas. I’ll give you my top five favorites. Please go to their sites, check them out and tell them Dan330 recommended them.

1. Mocha Mexicano by Rebecca Winkler of A Calculated Whisk: http://www.acalculatedwhisk.com/2013/11/mocha-mexicano-giveaway.html. I love the idea of adding a little spice to hot chocolate. It takes a feel-good favorite and makes it a little more interesting.

2. Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix with Peppermint Marshmallows by Willow Alren of Will Cook For Friends. Not only do these look like great gifts, we loved the marshmallow recipe attached to it!

3. Italian Hot Chocolate by Elena at ChillyFrosting.com. We loved how Elena took hot chocolate and made it almost a full-on dessert by making it so thick.
