Hot Chocolate + Amaretti & Orange


Ok…I have to be honest, this was the first time that I made a homemade hot chocolate. And.. It’s changed my life. It’s easy and quick, you can choose how much sugar you want and you can add all your favorite flavors and toppings. Is there any better way to have a hot chocolate on a cold day?

I made the ‘Italian Hot Chocolate’ version, the one that is thick and creamy (I used milk instead of water). When it comes together you could use a spoon to taste it.. It’s the perfect afternoon break! I’ve decided to be creative with flavor and toppings: orange, cinnamon, amaretti, whipped cream and a marshmallow… is that enough for you? Believe me, it was like eating an entire meal after I finished it! You should really try this recipe and please, let me know what you thought!
