Scarves, boots and hot chocolate. That’s what fall is made of. If you’re like me and live in a place that doesn’t always recognize the gloriousness of autumn, sometimes you have to make it happen yourself.
And what better way to make it happen than with a delicious cup of cocoa? I mean, yes, I drink coffee and tea and chais and lattes and all that jazz, but one thing that always feels like home: hot chocolate. With that, here’s one of my favorite simple recipes:
- 1 Cup of Milk
- ¼ Cup of Chocolate Syrup
- ¼ Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- Chocolate Chips
- Whipped Cream
Stir together chocolate syrup and milk in microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 3-4 minutes, until hot. Add in cinnamon. Top with whipped cream and chocolate chips (go crazy with it!).
