Gingerbread hot chocolate is the best around! This recipe has three secret ingredients that make it so. Curl up by the fire and sip this all day long.
Nothing beats homemade hot chocolate. It’s super quick and easy to make. If you make it yourself you can control what goes in it which is a huge perk.
This girl happens to be a big fan of making her own hot cocoa mix. It’s another easy DIY Recipe. Good hot cocoa mix can cost a fortune to buy in stores. Making your own saves money.
My family and I live in Canada so winters can be brutal here. We spend a fair amount of time outdoors with the dogs and horses so we love homemade hot chocolate when we come in from the cold.
One of my personal faves is gingerbread hot chocolate. I love making it, especially around the holidays. Nothing screams Christmas like the smell of gingerbread.
My daughter is OBSESSED with Biscoff. She keeps a jar of it in her barrack box while she’s away for military jobs. I keep it stockpiled in my pantry for when she’s home.
Don’t tell her I told you that. The girl has mad combat skills so she could probably kick my butt if she wanted to. Okay, don’t tell her that either.
We have an ongoing joke that I’m still tougher than her. I also tease her that I’m taller than her. Both are open to much debate but I’ll never admit it to her.
Okay, moving on. I implore you to make this gingerbread hot chocolate recipe immediately. Yes, I used the word implore. People don’t use that word enough. I’m bringing it back. Or not.
All I know is you all need to make this recipe immediately and let me know what you think of it. We love it and I hope you do too. I highly suggest making it on Christmas Eve.
If you’re making this for your adult crew I highly recommend adding a little rum or brandy to it! Make sure you add some gingerbread men and lots of marshmallows too!
