Cozy Hot Chocolate

Fri, 15th of December

What could be nicer after a long day than curling up in your favourite blanket with a mug of hot cocoa? This recipe uses coconut milk (from a carton not a tin) but you can use regular dairy or almond milk as you wish. The seasonal spices make this a warming cup full of flavor and additional antioxidants.
