Hot Chocolate is the Warmth

From inside

-unknown

Winter’s require some extra warmth, what better way than cozying up in your blanket and sipping this pipping hot… Hot chocolate with some garnish on top, enjoy it with your family n loved ones. Chocolate is such a beauty that sipping or having them brings a smile on anyone’s face, do you agree with this. I would like to say one more thing here, we many a times tend to ignore the product we buy, like the brand if something is cheap one jumps to buy that, saying it’s all the same only different brands price their product according to their demand, but that’s not true if you buy a high quality product the result will also vary to a huge extend, what I am saying is buy a good brand for chocolate powder here you will notice the change.

Hot chocolate

At times kids do get bored of having their regular milk with all the protein powder, they search for something special and different. My twins started asking me for hot chocolate, which I did oblige to. So thought of storing this yummy mixture.

Made them in bulk quantity and stored it in air tight container. Now, even if I am not at home they boil the milk and add hot chocolate premix… Voila… All good to go.

Sharing with you this simple recipe of hot chocolate premix, if you have a huge craze for them make and store. Serve them to your guests on any chilling winter day,this keeps one warm.
