The Best Cup of Hot Chocolate for Autumn

I'll be honest, I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to Summer just yet. Well, what Summer we did get of course! I love a bit of sunshine in my life! But that said, I do love Autumn time!!
Leaf crunching, big chunky knit jumpers, boots and... a big cup of steaming hot chocolate, with marshmallows! YUM!

This is the best time of year to indulge in that delicious beverage as a little break from the usually healthy diet! There's just something about holding a warm cup of hot chocolate that makes life that much better... and sweeter! Plus, who doesn't love the opportunity to satisfy a sweet tooth?
Ive found some amazing hot chocolate recipes for those cosy nights in, plus ways you can incorporate them into your daily life if you can't get enough chocolate-y goodness!! :) A yummy surprise for the little ones, a bountiful anniversary gift or a delicious after dinner treat! 




Who loves Hershey's?

Founded in 1894, Hershey's has been a chocolate staple in Pennsylvania now for well over 100 years. And when you taste their classic milk chocolate assortments, you know why!
Instead of snacking on a couple of Hershey's Kisses, why not brew a delicious cup of hot choc!! Perfect for those chilly Autumn mornings!


How to Make a Heartwarming Cup of Hershey's Hot Chocolate

Here's one of my favourite recipes to make family nights that little bit more special. 
You'll need Hershey Kisses, 2 cups of milk, whipped cream, marshmallows and a touch of cinnamon. 
It's pretty simple to make, just pour the cups of milk into a saucepan and put over the stove. Once you begin to see bubbles, stir in the Hershey's Kisses until they dissolve. After that, turn off the heat and pour into mugs. Add the whipped cream and sprinkle a dash of cinnamon. 


You can thank me later! ;)




Room to Improvise

What I love about this recipe is that you can change it up however you please. Feel free to use skimmed, semi skimmed or full fat milk. Or almond, soya or rice milk are great substitutes!

And use as many Kisses as you like. Personally I'd use 20, 50 tops. For those of you who like your hot chocolate a bit more 'bitter', use dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate. Also, skip the cinnamon, use chocolate shavings... or both! ;)


Surprise the Kids

You could also put your little ones favourite sweets on top! Sprinkle M&M minis over the whipped cream and marshmallows, crumble some cookies mint chocolates or any other sweets from Sweet Services


Can't Get Enough?

Start a new family tradition by sipping on hot chocolate before trick-or-treating this Halloween! Or make a few cups to enjoy while watching a family movie. Its a nice way to make those family moments much more special!
