The best hot chocolate recipe ever
Happy Christmas Eve! Sharing the best hot chocolate recipe seems like an appropriate thing for Christmas Eve. I hope you make yourself some and then snuggle up by the fireplace and get ready for all the festivities tomorrow.
This is honestly the best hot cocoa recipe ever, and you must try it! I found it randomly a few years ago on Momables blog, and then a few months ago someone told me it was the same recipe from the back of the Hershey’s Cocoa Powder box. So of course it’s got to be the best recipe!
