Thanks to DairyPure Milk for sponsoring this post. The recipe and opinions are my own.
Growing up my family would take yearly trips to Oregon to visit my Grandmother. I remember many times as a young girl sitting in her kitchen watching her make homemade hot chocolate. I always thought her hot chocolate was so delicious and better than any store packet. Maybe it was because we would drink it in fancy teacups with matching saucers. Maybe it really was the best hot chocolate in the world. Either way, it left an impression on me and hot chocolate is my favorite drink of all time. Now as an adult, I don’t have her exact recipe, but this one I came up with is yummy just the same.
My favorite part of hot chocolate is all the many options for delicious toppings. Without needing to do a thing to the hot chocolate itself you can add some pizzaz from adding some sweet treats on top.
I hope you enjoy this easy rich homemade hot chocolate recipe and several of our topping ideas.
