Alright, I have to admit, it is very possible that I am having too much fun with this hot chocolate series. The recipes are all so simple, and the result is I am required to drink a cup of hot chocolate every day. What’s not to love?!

As I started researching hot chocolate recipes last night, I was overwhelmed by the immense flavor options possible.  I had a moment of weakness where I thought I may never end this series, but decided that you all may not appreciate the lack of variety.  Thus, I will stop with a total of five hot chocolate posts for this series, but I promise- you’re going to want to see all of them!

I decided to pick this recipe, because I find the combination of coconut and hot chocolate to be extremely refreshing. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did, and as always, have fun tweaking it to your preference!
