Delicious Hot Chocolate Recipes to Warm You Up

Ever since I was a little girl, a cup of hot chocolate is a surefire way to make me smile. Although my mom made it now and then, it was Dad who frequently stood over the stove cooking up a batch of hot chocolate after we came in from an epic snowball fight or snowman building session. We’d pull off our coats, mittens and boots, warm ourselves up by the wood stove, and wait for a steamy cup of homemade cocoa. Yum.

While Dad’s easy, old-fashioned recipe is still my favorite (topped with some whipped cream or mini-marshmallows, of course), I’ve started branching out and trying different flavors of hot chocolate. Sign me up for anything with caramel! I think you’ll love these recipes just as much as I do.
