It’s the time of year when I dust off my hot drink recipes because baby it’s COLD outside! Each year I try to share some favourites here, last year I shared my Candy Cane Hot Chocolate recipe which is one of the kids favourites.

Today I’m sharing my Creamy Hot Cocoa recipe which I know you will all enjoy. This recipe is one we’ve been making for years, it’s the go-to hot drink after the kids run in from a day of playing in the snow. We change into jammies and cuddle up by the fire with a mug each. Yes, it’s a postcard moment here folks!

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing plenty of non-alcoholic drink recipes with you all so look forward to those!

    There’s butter in it? That’s got to make it good. As Gerard Depardeaux said in Holiday. Butter is the Secret to Life.

    I am going to have to try this. I love hot chocolate and since I don’t drink coffee or tea this is the only hot drink I have.

    Wow, butter, i would have never thought to add that to it. It sounds fantastic and will have to give it a go with our little KK as she is a huge Hot Chocolate fan.

    OMG why have I never tried this before? It looks like pure indulgence! I have an Aero bar calling my name from the cupboard, maybe I should try making Aero hot chocolate!? Thank you for enlightening me!

    Cocoa is a comfort drink for me and this one sounds rich and delicious. I drink cocoa year round and I’m going to try this recipe. Thank you.
