This hot chocolate is a mixture of a sweet, rich, smooth and silky cup of joy!! You can’t take just one sip.
Does anyone still drink hot chocolate in February? I know I do! Anytime it is cold outside, I would much rather prefer a hot drink over a cold smoothie (or any cold drink). I don’t even care for very cold water…my favorite temperature of water is when I fill up my bottle with very cold water from the fridge the night before, then let it sit out all night and get to room temperature. Yes, I’m strange like that!
Hot chocolate is just so family-friendly. My boys think it is so awesome to have homemade hot chocolate as an evening snack. It’s a special treat!
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I was trying to come up with something special for the days leading up to it…something we could enjoy before the holiday, but also make year ’round if desired.
Red velvet is everywhere this time of year…if I did my research correctly, I believe that red velvet is just chocolate with lots of red food coloring. Correct me if I’m mistaken. People love it regardless!
Since hot chocolate is still “in season”, I have a simple recipe that is super delicious and makes one serving of this rich red velvety hot beverage.
I hope you enjoy it. I topped mine with just a bit of fat free Redi-whip (that’s the Drive-Thru Sue coming out in me). My little boy took a sip of mine and his eyes got big…without a word, he just drew the mug up to his mouth again for a second sip! It is definitely a rich and sweet drink, but you could put less sweetener in it if you wish. Valentine’s Day is all about being sweet though, right?
