Hot Creamy Chocolate

Well, it was my 5-year-old kid’s demand, to be honest. He had seen in some cartoon and wanted to have it and mommy dear happily curated this recipe for him. The hot creamy chocolate in this recipe amalgamates beautifully with warm spices and creates a perfect beverage chilly wintery evening. It’s equally enjoyed by kids and grown-up adults.
