Dessert Recipes Tasty Treats To Sip On

Toasty Almond Hot Chocolate

Toasty-Almond-Hot-Chocolate-1

We are in the midst of yet another cold snap and I, for one, am totally over it. While my heart tells me I should be sippin’ on strawberry watermelon mojitos and munching on roasted coconut popsicles by now, my frozen toes tell me otherwise. Though I know we’re all probably sick of hot cocoa by now, I recently discovered a new variation that’s beyond delicious and may make the frigid temperatures bearable, at least for a few minutes.
