creamy hot cocoa

This recipe was born from this year’s magical snowy Winter Solstice. We got an unexpected snow, leading us to drop everything and head out to the mouth of the Olympic National park for an afternoon of snow play under the trees with no one else in sight.

We came home happily exhausted and chilly with a craving for something warm and soul filling. So, Rusty went to work in the kitchen creating the creamiest, most delicious hot cocoa I’ve ever tasted. It’s simple, decidant, and nourishing too! Cheers to new traditions, treats, and family time. Enjoy, friends!
