Get ready for the ultimate hot chocolate experience that takes very little work. There is a creamy swirl floating in the chocolate pool. As you sip, you will taste the warming cinnamon and everything will be as beautiful as a snowy NYC night. What could be bad about cake and cocoa becoming one? lol 🙂 Most of all, it’s super easy to make with only one pot. So don’t forget your favorite mug!
This is dedicated to snowy days off from school when we were kids. Also, the cake side of this recipe is dedicated to my family’s pizza and cake nights. Finally, after a long day of craving a “sweets” pick me up (when there was no alcohol in the house! lol), we would have the ultimate hot cocoa.
