My favorite drink for winter - Hot chocolate

Happy Valentine's day

The minute I reach India, I go looking for a Nescafe vending machine. But people's taste has changed in India I guess, I don't find a single Nescafe coffee machine, until I reach Bhubaneshwar airport! Well I do know there is no Nescafe machines here, so I stick to drinking hot chocolate. I love the Starbucks hot chocolate made from the sachet. I also stock up on the Hot Chocolate powder served in Williams Sonoma during Christmas! And so when I am home and want something to indulge on - its a piping hot cup of hot chocolate. Knowing my ever crazy love for chocolates and hot chocolates, I got these bars of chocolates as gifts this Christmas. So I had to try a yummy cuppa with this...





How To 


So its simple. Take some good quality chocolate and add some 1/4 cup milk and put in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take out, mix and put back in the microwave until the chocolate is melted. Add sugar per taste, add some milk and microwave for 1 more minute. Now enjoy your hot chocolate.

Add marshmallows if you want! Shave some chocolate on top if you want! Have fun - go ahead and indulge!

  28. This looks more chocolatey-er than any other chocolate drink I've searched. I was wondering where can I buy those chocolates?
