There’s just something cozy about a chilly evening, a fleece blanket, and a big mug of hot chocolate (and, if I had a fireplace, a crackling fire!). While I like the packets of hot chocolate for the convenience, I really like homemade hot chocolate made with milk and real melted chocolate.
Because I don’t always want to go through the extra steps of making it homemade, these hot chocolate pods are perfect for a last minute urge for a mug of hot chocolate!
With only 3 ingredients, they take hardly any time to make. Plus, when you do take the time to make them, you get a big batch.
I made a couple of different sizes of pods. One size is perfect for an individual cup of hot chocolate and the other size is great for sharing a cup of hot chocolate with a friend.
And when you do want a cup of hot chocolate, all you have to do is stir a pod into a cup of hot milk. It’s that easy.
These hot chocolate pods also make great hostess gifts, teacher gifts, or just a little something extra for a friend.
Top them with marshmallows, sprinkles, peppermint candy, or whatever else you have on hand and you have a festive treat to match the season!
