When it’s dreadful and chilly outside, all you want to do is hunker down and be warm. Doing this will likely include a multitude of blankets, a fireplace (or space heater), and a warm beverage. Hot chocolate is a tried and true drink of choice for this season, and there are a variety of ways to go about making it. Mixes for hot chocolate are great and all, but they always end up grainy at the bottom of the cup.
If you’re wanting the real deal, and still have a streamlined process, then the Hot Chocolate On A Stick might be a quick fix. You’ll only need to heat the milk to your desired temperature, and stir in the chocolatey goodness. The instructions say to stir it in for 1-2 minutes, so you’ll either have to reheat it to get it back to the optimal temperature, or just warm it for a little longer from the get-go. In this variety pack of six, you’ll get two milk, two dark, and two vanilla white chocolate options. This rings in at about $18, and would be a good gift, but keeping up this habit of about $3 a cup could be dangerous for your wallet.
