I came up with this creamy hot chocolate recipe years ago, when we used to sled ride all day long in the cold...and wanted something warm and satisfying while we thawed LOL!...we would always make a huge pot of this creamy deliciousness...I have always loved a big dollop of fluffy marshmallow cream in kids prefer whipped cream...I hope you give this a try's so good!!...I sometimes add a splash of Kahlua to mine...yum! My photos & my recipe..
