If you love hot chocolate but you want something different, you are in luck because there are plenty of delicious variations out there. Here are some excellent ways in which you can turn your next mug into a truly spectacular taste sensation.
Hot chocolate and coffee go really well together. The next time you brew some fresh coffee, try adding some chocolate powder to your cup. Make sure that you mix your mug properly and don’t make your coffee too strong or it will overpower the cocoa flavour.
Splash of syrup
Syrup can be added to coffee but it can also be added to hot chocolate. There are dozens of flavours from which you can choose. From vanilla and caramel to strawberry and everything in between. Choose your favourite flavour and mix instead of sugar.
Spice it up
Spices can also be used to enhance the flavour of a hot mug of chocolate. Some of the best spices you can add include cinnamon and nutmeg. If you want something spicy, consider adding chill or cayenne pepper.
If you are a fan of mint chocolate, then you will love adding fresh mint, or even mint extract to your cup. The key with fresh mint is to either blend it into tiny pieces along with your water or milk before boiling it.
Truffles are a luxurious treat that can be enjoyed alongside your cup of hot chocolate or add one to the mug and watch it melt. It will make your hot beverage that much creamier and even more delicious.
Now that you have several scrumptious tricks up your sleeve, you can turn an ordinary cup of hot chocolate into something truly amazing. Not only can you enjoy these additions when making a cup for yourself, but you can also impress your guests!
