Cozying up with a warm drink and blanket can be a picture of perfection for the cold winter months. If you enjoy settling down in your 360 State Street apartment after a long day with something sweet that will keep you warm, hot chocolate is the perfect wintertime treat! Here are some savory hot chocolate recipes you can make in your 360 State Street apartment for a cozy night in, or if you’re craving something sweet on a cold January day.
Peppermint Vodka Hot Chocolate: Add a twist at the end of a long day or Friday night to your hot chocolate. Using white chocolate instead of traditional milk or dark chocolate, this recipe is unique and tasty! Bring together milk and white chocolate melt ingredients to a smooth simmer. Once the base of your white hot chocolate flavor is complete, mix in some vodka and peppermint extract for that twist of flavor. Top it off with whip cream and candy cane chunks for the perfect warm sweet treat.
Nutella Hot Chocolate: This recipe can be made spiked with a little bourbon, or hold the bourbon and enjoy the rich flavors of chocolate! Adding together milk, nutella and cinnamon stick, these flavors infuse together to create a rich and flavorful treat! Perfectly roasted marshmallows top off the recipe for a divine snack.
Spiked Jones: If you need your caffeine mix on a weekend morning and are looking to add an extra flavor, this hot chocolate recipe is just the trick! This is no ordinary hot chocolate as the recipe combines milk, cream, coffee beans, semi sweet chocolate, kahlua and dark chocolate covered coffee beans.
