French Style Hot Chocolate Recipe

Can I just tell you how excited I was for an impending snow storm? I was 100% ready to be snowed in under several inches of snow and get all cozy with our pup and my hubby and Netflix and a little chaud chocolat.

Is there anything better than hot chocolate when you’re snowed in? But, I guess it’s fine since is still quite cold and I still want to be cozy inside with the rain we’re having.

After our trip to Paris where we had several real hot chocolates, I knew I wanted to try it at home. It really is easy, so decadent, and something you make for friends. Because if you don’t, I can’t promise your jeans will fit!


It really is easy easy to make hot chocolate without a mix. And quick! It’s things like this that, someday, I want to make my kids and give them the memory of their mom taking the time to make them real chaud chocolats!

I mean, can you even handle this?! You haveeee to top them with whipped cream. I literally could have one of these every day!

You’ll blend up your chocolate bars, higher the quality the better your hot chocolate will be! Then pour the milk over the chocolate bits and blend it up until it’s combined and a little frothy.

Let me know if you try this out!
