Whether it’s a cozy vegetable stew served with crusty bread or peppermint patties that tingle your taste buds, everyone has certain culinary comforts they look forward to during the cold months. If rich hot chocolate is your winter wish, consider a healthy alternative. Like the hot chocolate you usually make at home, this simple recipe can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. But, unlike the popular single-serving packages, this version is made with high-quality, good-for-you cacao and sweetened without sugar. Put on the kettle and bundle up with an oversized mug of this cacao bliss.
