The wind is blowing and it’s slowly driving me insane. That dull roar that just won’t end. It drives me up a wall. To distract myself I decided to make my easy homemade hot chocolate. I have this hot cocoa recipe that I love but when I just want hot chocolate in a hurry I use my homemade chocolate syrup, heat some milk, and have a nice warm sweet drink in no time.

I heat 8 ounces of milk and stir in a few tablespoons of chocolate syrup. While my milk is heating I like to whip some heavy cream to top my hot chocolate with, and in no time I have a quick easy hot chocolate that still doesn’t come from a packet. Even if I heat the milk in the microwave the cream can be whipped in no time and be ready with the milk.

To finish my hot cocoa off I top it with mini chocolate chips, Andes mint chips, or my favorite chili powder and cinnamon. Who knew easy could look so fancy?

    1. I tell Dave all the time that if I was in old times, living on the prairie, I would have gone stark raving mad. It drives me nuts. I get all jittery and literally go a little crazy.
