Hi there, long time no post! 🙂
I hope everyone had a good Christmas!
It came and went, fast and furious-like over here, and I'm still in a bit of a tinsel-laced tizzy.
Though the Christmas chaos has passed, the cold weather remains, and for that, I have ten, count'em, TEN delicious solutions for it!
I perused the web for daaaays, searching for what I consider to be the best, most unique, and healthy(ish) recipes for a cup of my favorite winter treat.
Here they are in all their drool-worthy glory. Enjoy!

For my current low sugar way of eating, I love that this recipe is a 'sweetened to taste' sort, allowing freedom in that arena.
My own recent recipe, this is a favorite with my two daughters who are oblivious to the added pumpkin.

If you're looking to abstain from adding any sweetener to your cup of co, this recipe from Whole New Mom uses stevia!

Like Reeses' in a cup, the combination of peanut butter and chocolate is never a bad idea!
7. Egg Yolk Hot Chocolate
Egg yolks create thickness in puddings and nogs, so why not chocolate?!

Easy peasy...get yourself some milk and a chocolate bar. The end.
Cashews, dates, and cacao come together to create this very unique recipe!
Thick, rich, and creamy, this is our 'house' hot chocolate, if you will, and has been for years.
Do you have a great hot chocolate recipe you'd like to share?
