Hot Chocolate and the Winners


Hot Chocolate

Η συνταγή και στα ελληνικά στο τέλος της ανάρτησης!

I think that if I had to choose a feast that matches perfectly with hot chocolate that would be Christmas. There is something about Christmas and chocolate that makes me imagine the most homey, warm and delicious pictures.

Christmas trees, beautiful fancy ornaments, happy people getting together around a festive table. Children making all the fuss in the world, women cooking and baking, fireplace on in full speed are some of the pictures that come to my mind. And on top of all this a cup of hot chocolate; for guests, for children, for moms and dads. Warm, filling, tingling your taste buds and making you somehow feel happy, warm and safe. I don’t know about you but for me a cup of hot chocolate is all the above and even more. And every time I drink it, even if it’s not Christmas, all these pictures come to my mind and suddenly it is another feast for me.

Hot Chocolate

Christmas is coming fast and I think there is no better way to celebrate with your friends and family than with a warm, inviting cup of chocolate. Or, after a tiring Christmas Day with cooking and baking all day, serving friends and family and cleaning afterwards, just help yourself with a cup of hot chocolate, put your favorite music, place your feet up to rest and just relax and unwind from the very tiring day. Whatever you do these Christmas, just try to squeeze in a cup of this chocolate and you won’t regret it. That’s a promise!
