Sunday Afternoon Hot Chocolate

Sometimes there’s nothing better than laying on the couch on a lazy Sunday afternoon watching Love Actually (especially around the holidays) and drinking a cup of homemade hot chocolate. ¬†I like to make my own hot chocolate at home since I know it will be free of corn syrup and I can add in anything I want!

Sunday Afternoon Hot Chocolate


3 tsp Hot Chocolate Mix (I prefer Green & Black’s organic hot chocolate)

2 cups almond milk (or any dairy/non-dairy milk of choice)

1 tsp Vanilla

2 tsp Cinnamon (if you want extra cinnamon flavor add in more)

Handful of Chocolate Chips (I love white chocolate chips in this)


Add hot chocolate mix and almond milk to a pot and mix together while it is simmering on the stove.

Add in the white chocolate chips, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Continue to stir slowly.

Once hot chocolate is piping hot pour into mugs and enjoy while watching Love Actually (or any movie of your choice).

Peppermint extract would also be delicious in this to get into the holiday spirit!
