I hope you are all having a lovely day filled with family, friends, yummy food, and merry times – whether you celebrate Christmas or not. It is feeling very Christmas-y around here. I just came home from tobogganing with family; it was so much fun!
Here is an extremely simple recipe that will make you feel extra warm and fuzzy tonight. It is a classic recipe that I’ve tweaked a bit to my liking – extra chocolate-y and not too sweet. Enjoy!
Classic Hot Cocoa:

Whipped Cream, to top
Cocoa Powder, to garnish
