This hot chocolate was made because the cravings I was having at the time could not be satisfied, and I’m glad I made it. There are a couple secrets to this drink to make it unique and amazing starting with a tablespoon of tahini.
I will be wearing these red-nosed reindeer slippers year-long.
The key to this hot chocolate is to melt chocolate in steaming milk for a more decadent and European taste. Sweeten a bit, add a pinch of salt and some homemade tahini and you got yourself a perfect warming winter dessert.
