Hot Chocolate

Hot-Chocolate-WB
It is that time of the year again! This hot chocolate is surely going to add a blast of "yum" to your Christmas party. Similar to what you'll find served in a Paris bistro, our recipe is creamy and decadent.

Ingredients

 1 cup cashews
 2 ½ cups oat milk
 1 cup chocolate chips
 1 tablespoon cacao
 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  teaspoon salt
 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Garnish
 Marshmallows
 Coconut cream
 Shredded chocolate
 Chocolate ganache

Instructions

1

Soak cashews overnight.

2

Drain cashews. Blend in a high-speed blender with oat milk for 2 to 3 minutes.

3

Strain the mixture, and place in a saucepan on medium-high heat.

4

Bring to a gentle boil, and add chocolate chips.

5

Stir continuously with a spatula so the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the saucepan.

6

Once the chocolate is melted, add the cacao powder and maple syrup. Mix well until smooth.

7

Remove from the stove and add salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix together, stir, and serve with your choice of toppings.

Notes
Soaking cashews overnight guarantees a smooth consistency.

If the blender is not very powerful, please do not skip straining the milk and cashew mixture. It’s an extra step but so worth the texture.

You can use semi-sweet or dark chocolate depending on your taste preference.

Please use oat milk because almond and soy milk are light and don’t create a decadent texture which is the hallmark of this recipe.
