As the weather gets colder and the snow starts falling (well, theoretically), a steaming mug of hot chocolate becomes my go-to. My uncle always whips this treat up for me and it’s the real deal – rich and creamy with no powdery mix in sight.
If you’ve been looking to try out that kitchen in your dorm but don’t know how to go about it, this is the place to start. Here is a simple recipe that’s perfect for the holiday season and it’s super easy to double or even triple once your hall mates get a taste!
