Orange Hot Chocolate
It is winter which means I am perpetually cold. Which makes me long for comfort foods and yummy warm drinks. So I make hot chocolate waaaaaay too often. And I'm not at all upset about it.
Even my three-year-old asks me almost every day for warm hot chocolate. I've created a monster who is basically me...but in toddler form. Hahaha
I don't know if I am proud or worried that her love of chocolate is as strong as mine is.

Orange Hot Chocolate Recipe
- 8 oz Milk
- 2-3 Orange Lindt Truffles (affiliate link included for your convenience)
- Whipped Cream (optional but recommended)
- Warm milk using your preferred method. I usually put mine in the microwave for 1.5 minutes (time will vary depending on microwave). But the stovetop works too, especially if you are heating up milk for more than one cup of hot cocoa.
- Once the milk is heated thoroughly, add 2-3 orange Lindt truffles (or flavor of your choice) into the milk and stir until melted and well-mixed.
- Add whipped cream on top if you like.
