One of my favorite memories of winters past was always when me and my friends/family would go out in our winter boots and coats and brave the cold for some good old holiday fun. We would toboggan down hills, go ice skating on the near by rink or just have fun in the fluffy white snow. Of course a few hours later we were all cold, our socks where no longer warm and dry, our fingers frosty and our nose was as red as Rudolphs. Once everyone was in agreement, it was time to head back indoors to warm up under a blanket and sip on a freshly made cup of hot chocolate.
Of course, more often then not, the hot chocolate was either picked up from the local Tim Hortons Drive Thru or was made using an instant pack because we were all too lazy ( and tired ) to attempt to make our own. But this recipe is super simple to make, requires very few ingredients and will leave you feeling warm and cozy!
