this past week, teddy’s been making sure that we’re awake to welcome in each new day at the most ungodly hours ;) the only thing that’s made my chilly 6am starts more bearable (apart from the bouncy puppy greetings of course) has been drinking delicious mugfuls of hot chocolate.
i’d always viewed hot chocolate as an afternoon treat, or a drink to be had in the evening when no other forms of pudding can be found! drinking it in the morning feels so indulgent, and i think it’s such a lovely way to start a wintery morning :)
p.s. i can’t recommend highly enough adding a splash of your favourite syrup to the milk whilst it’s heating. gingerbread is always my choice- so delicious :)
