Lifestyle // Indulge in Festive Hot Chocolate

Oh I do love Christmas and what better way to get into the festive spirit than drinking and eating your whole body weight in delicious chocolate. 

When it comes to the cold, crisp nights, snuggled on the settee with the fairy lights twinkling on the Christmas tree, your favourite Christmas film on the box and stuffing your face with the most delightful festive treats, I love to make myself a hot chocolate. 

It cannot be any old hot chocolate, it has to the prettiest and most calorific hot chocolate (although I do think next year I could maybe add a few more calories in there). I'm not normally a fan of hot chocolate but for some reason on Christmas Eve, I do love a good sip of one in my favourite Christmas mug (there may even be a small tipple of Baileys in there too!). 

I don't just make them with drinking chocolate, oh no, I have to make one with at least a full bag of chocolate orange segments, with sprinkled candy canes on top, along with a few more segments of chocolate orange and not forgetting whipped cream!! They are super easy to make, this one I added the chocolate segments to a pan of hot milk, I kept stirring and adding the segments until it was the perfect consistency - although it can never be too chocolaty!!! 

The smaller hot chocolate was made with galaxy drinking chocolate which was mixed with boiling hot water from a kettle. I then added the whipped cream on top and dunked loads of my favourite brand of chocolate on top - Kinder! It was sooooo goood!! 

Who else loves to indulge in delicious hot chocolate on Christmas Eve? 

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!
