Nothing says winter or the holiday season like some good ol’ hot chocolate.  My Homemade Hot Chocolate is a keeper recipe for the holidays.  Super simple to make during Christmas!  For more than one serving simply multiply by the number of people you will be serving – eg. making for 3 people use 3 cups and triple the remaining ingredients!
