3 Holiday Dessert Recipes To Brighten Up The Season

This is truly the most wonderful time of the year! That means recipes too. Here are three recipes you can try this holiday season.

With the frosty air of winter swinging in, there is no better time to snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate. Here’s a recipe that’s a hit in my household.

 

  1. Mix 4 cups of any milk, ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder and ¼ cup granulated sugar in a saucepan.

  2. Bring to medium heat until warm.

  3. Add ½ cup of semisweet chocolate chips and which until chocolate melts.

  4. Whisk in vanilla extract.
