Kids are on vacation, the weather is cooler – and all we want to do is grab a blanket and catch up on Netflix. This recipe is perfect for those late afternoons. You can even halve it if you want to make a small batch, but our suggestion would be making the full recipe, and then store the rest for later.
We love finding different types of hot chocolate recipes: the classic Guatemalan Hot Chocolate, a homemade Hot Chocolate instant mix, a Hot Chocolate made in a French Press… and even a Spiked version for grownups. If you’re not into Chocolate, you can whip a Hot Vanilla for a change.
We found everything we needed to make this recipe at Almacenes Siman: a small pot, the glass cups and a set of tablecloths, along a Thermal Carafe that’s great to keep your hot chocolate warm! And to top it off, always serve topped with marshmallows and it will be a hit!
