Happy New Year y’all! I hope your year is off to a good start. It’s really cold here in Atlanta this week and we were super hyped about getting snow, but it was a no show where I live.
Since we anticipated being snowed in, I decided to whip up a quick hot chocolate recipe. I decided to do a spicy take on the classic hot chocolate with this recipe and I was really pleased with the results. If you love warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger you are going to really enjoy this hot chocolate.
Cheers to staying warm this winter!
