12 Days of Treats Beverages

Truffle Hot Cocoa

Sigh…it’s Day 12 but I’ve saved a good one to end on.  You need something to dunk all of those goodies in, right?  If you watch my videos, you hear me end every video introduction with “grab a cup of hot cocoa, it’s time to bake some magic in Mrs. Kringle’s Kitchen” and for good reason.  Our Sunday evening tradition is hot cocoa whether its -20 or 95 degrees.  We usually do a quick version that I’ll share another time but since it’s the holidays, we should get a little decadent, right?

Let's dive in!
Sur La Table

We found a Lindt Chocolate store at an outlet mall and stopped in.  When we noticed they served hot chocolate, we had to go for it.  It was so easy and so tasty, I knew I had to recreate it at home and the cool thing is, you can mix and match truffles to customize the flavors!  In this video, I’ll show you how in less than 10 minutes you can have the most luxurious hot cocoa to enjoy with some 12 Days of Treats recipes!  (Or any random Sunday!)

The video shows you how to bring it all together and what the recipe should look like in different stages.
