You know what’s even better than regular hot chocolate? Orange hot chocolate! I’ve seen many takes and variations on this flavor combination and wanted to share my own recipe for this warming, delicious beverage!
You will need:
1 large tablespoon sipping chocolate (I love Trader Joe’s brand.)
zest of 1 medium orange peel, or about 1 tsp dried orange peel
¼ tsp orange extract
¾ cup milk (almond or regular)
whipped cream (if you like)
Warm your milk to hot but not scalding temperature. Stir in the sipping chocolate and orange extract. Add whipped cream and a bit of orange zest for garnish!
