Hot chocolate is an amazing drink – it calms you down; it makes you feel comfortable and loved; it’s like being hugged, which makes it a perfect drink after a long day. But as the days get hotter, we no longer turn to hot chocolate. At My Chocolate Box, we say it’s time for a change! There is absolutely no reason why we can’t enjoy our favourite chocolatey drink during the heated summer days.
Thus, we went looking for ideas on how to enjoy hot chocolate without overheating. The easiest solution is to make your hot chocolate as per usual (melting your favourite slab in heated cream and milk), letting it cool down and then topping it off with ice. However, if you need a little more oomph in your recipe, read on.
