I declare this time of the year to be hot chocolate season! It's so nice to sit around indoors wrapped in huge cardigans sipping hot drinks, isn't it just?
I recently purchased Hasslacher’s “Solid Bar” Colombian drinking chocolate in order to warm myself with something else than coffee or tea for a change. It has been ages since I have made hot chocolate, but now I'm truly back in the saddle. Making hot chocolate has a completely different feel to it when you have to melt a chunk of actual chocolate to get the drink. This hot chocolate is very strongly chocolatey, just as it should be, and it contains no added sugar.
Here is my recent Sunday brunch depicted with that hot chocolate and mushroom and cheese toasties. It was so lovely that it probably has to be repeated soon.
What is your favourite hot drink? What do you drink your hot chocolate with? Is cheese toastie not the clear winner as the partner?
