Sometimes you just want to curl up at home with a good book or movie and a hot chocolate! With a little secret tip, we are sure to help you enjoy a great at home treat! To avoid a watery flavor, use milk or milk substitute like soy milk as the base of the drink. If you want that extra silky chocolaty taste, put a Hershey kiss in the bottom of you mug and let it melt before adding in the hot coco powder. Now you have a perfect at home mug of hot chocolate! This is great for those times you are stuck in your apartment due to a snowstorm! You and your entire family are sure to love this at home winter treat!
