Hot Chocolate | Simple Hot Cocoa for Two

Hot Chocolate

This creamy and delicious hot chocolate is easy to make and is the perfect drink for Christmas. So indulge yourself this holiday with a cup of rich and silky hot cocoa.
There are so many ways of making hot chocolate. Some people like to add cocoa powder and some like to add actual chocolate. I personally like both. So this time I made hot chocolate with cocoa powder. It is mildly spiced with a hint of cinnamon. And to get that silky smooth texture, I have added a little cornflour. This makes the hot chocolate super creamy without adding actual cream. I hope you’ll give it a try. This recipe is really simple and I’m sure all the ingredients are already available in your pantry. Happy Cooking!
