Hot Chocolate, Five Ways

Winter weather calls for all things cozy. What’s our favorite cozy essential? A warm, rich cup of hot chocolate. Scroll through, pick your fave, then nestle under your softest blanket and enjoy.

*All recipes can be made in a saucepan under medium heat until completely combined. Be sure to whisk occasionally so that the chocolate doesn’t burn!
