For the times you want hot chocolate, just for you, this dairy-free treat will warm you from the inside out

hot-chocolate-800x600

It’s getting very cold now – this week the temperatures are not expected to go above 40F (4C).  And everywhere I turn on social media, there are recipes for hot chocolate, complete with marshmallows and feelings of warmth and coziness.  So I decided to hop on the hot chocolate bandwagon as well, because, well, I love my hot chocolate recipe!

A lot of recipes I’ve seen recently for hot chocolate involve melting some chocolate in a saucepan on the stove, then adding milk etc.  And it makes a lot of hot chocolate, maybe for families etc.  This is not one of those recipes.  This is simply mix some cocoa powder with maple syrup, dissolve it in some hot water, add milk and microwave.  And it makes a yummy hot chocolate, just for one person.  Do you feel special?  You should, because I do every time I make this.
