Decadent Bittersweet Hot Chocolate

Annacia *


This is pure heaven in my book. Rich and creamy dreamy. This only makes one serving but it multiples very easily to make as mane as you need.

To sweeten or not is purely up to you. I love bittersweet and often don't add any sweetening at all and just a small amount when I do.
