Mars Hot Chocolate

One of the Christmas Eve traditions we have around here is snuggling up on the sofa together under a blanket whilst watching a Christmas film and drinking hot chocolate. In previous years we have opted for a sachet bought from the store, but since I have been experimenting with drink recipes this year, I thought we’d mix it up a bit and try a special homemade recipe.

This is where Mars hot chocolate comes in! Can you think of anything better than a rich and smooth hot chocolate laced with caramel, nougat and even more delicious chocolate? Think of this as my early Christmas present to you and I hope you have an amazing Christmas Eve full of magic and hot chocolate!

    Now I am living in the US for 9 months and haven’t found any Mars here. I must be going to the wrong stores lol. I have to look harder next time, because I don’t want to miss out on this hot chocolate 🙂
