Hot Chocolate with Chocolate Syrup

Ever since quitting coffee few weeks ago, I have been looking for a warming up drink especially during winter months.

I settled on drinking hot chocolate to warm me up.

Hot Chocolate with Chocolate Syrup

Last time when I made hot chocolate I used whipped cream which was available then but it is not an ingredient that I keep always.

So I decided to adapt the same recipe without the whipped cream.

The result is rich, hot chocolate perfect for cozying me up.
