Happy Hot Chocolate

It’s been a year exactly since I started this blog so I’m trying to celebrate. When I think celebration, I think of drinks and the “cheers” motion. But I have been feeling a little down lately and I’m not in the celebrating mood. So what better way to cheer myself up/cheers with myself? Hot chocolate. It’s a drink and I can physically do the cheers motion with it and also CHOCOLATE.

This would have been more ideal if I had red wine at home, because I could have made my red wine hot chocolate again but alas, I don’t have any wine at home. But I have another secret ingredient 😉 Not so secret or special but evaporated milk in hot chocolate just makes it that much better. It’s really going the extra mile.
