DIY Hot Chocolate for Christmas

There is no better way to spend Christmas than enjoying good food/drinks in the company of our beloved ones.
This is why today there will be no outfit post, but another DIY post dedicated to the most favourite Christmas drink of all of us- hot chocolate. I know this may look like a calorie bomb to you, but after all holidays mean more time for us, time to get spoiled... so, goodbye, guilty feelings!  
This drink is not only suuper delicious per se, but tastes even better in combination with the carrot cake I've shown you a few days ago (recipe here)
 
If you are interested in how to make your own yummy Christmas hot chocolate keep on reading! 
 
Ingredients

(These are the ingredients for one cup of hot chocolate. If you want more, you will have to increase the amount of each ingredient) 
 
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
 150g dark chocolate
1 cup of milk
 
For the decoration:
 
whipped cream
 chocolate chips
 
 Preparation:
 
Melt the chocolate in a bain marie (water bath). If you don't know how, check out this link. Meanwhile, heat up the milk. You can do it either on the stove or in a microwave. If you choose the first option use low heat and keep your eyes on the milk.Then add the milk to the chocolate and mix the ingredients well. Afterwards add the cocoa and combine again. Now you can decorate your drink of your choice. 
That's pretty much it! 
 
Hope you enjoyed my recipe. 
 
Wish you all a magical Christmas. Enjoy the time with your family and don't forget to be grateful for all you've achieved and already have in your life:)

Не мога да се сетя за по-добър начин за прекаране на празниците от това да сме в компанията на най-любимите си хора, наслаждавайки се на вкусна храна и напитки.
Ето защо днес съм ви подготвила апетитно изкушение, с което нарушаването на всяка една диета е напълно оправдано (или пък не). Е, в крайна сметка празниците са време за нас, време да се поглезим... така че, довиждане, гузна съвест!

Днешното предложение е посветено на така любимата на всички нас коледна напитка - горещия шоколад. Вкусът му е неповторим, особено в комбинация с морковения кейк, който ви представих преди няколко поста (рецептата може да си припомните тук).

Необходими продукти:
 
(описаните по-долу продукти са използвани за направата на една чаша горещ шоколад, така че не забравяйте да увеличите тяхното количеството, ако желаете повече)

2 чаени лъжици какао
150 гр. натурален шоколад
1 чаша мляко

За декорацията
 
бита сметана
шоколадови пръчици.

Подготовка:

Разтопете шоколада на водна баня  (прочетете повече за различните методи тук) Междувременно загрейте млякото на котлон (на слаб огън и го наглеждайте) или в микровълнова. След това добавете млякото към шоколада и разбъркайте добре съставките. Прибавете какаото към останалите продукти и разбъркайте до получаването на хомогенна смес. След като сте готови с подготовката декорирайте по ваш избор.

Надявам се рецептата ми да ви е допаднала.
 
Желая на всички мои читатели светли празници. Насладете се на времето, прекарано със семейството ви и бъдете благодарни за всичко, което сте постигнали.
