Hot Chocolate and Xmas – a match made in heaven | How to make Hot Chocolate at home

Christmas is the Blessed season which
the whole world in a conspiracy of love !

On the eve of Xmas,  its time for celebration.  And whats better celebration than cake and
cookies and warm goodies just out of the oven. 
The nip in the air demands chocolate in many forms, and hot chocolate is
just one of them. 

This week at BM there are special holiday treats as a theme.
To begin with is hot chocolate – an eternal favourite for us, through the year. All these 3 treats go to Sandhya’s event – holiday Treats (kids delight), original event by Valli


Hot chocolate as a beverage is
made many ways. But I like to make it this way as my family enjoys it.
