Time for Hot Chocolate!

Cove Cuisine – Hot Chocolate

Temperatures are definitely getting cooler as we near the end of November and when it’s cold outside, here at Tranquilla Cove we want to be warm on the inside! This is one of my go to beverages on cold mornings. The Nutmeg and Cinnamon add to the warmth of this creamy hot chocolate. There are times when reinforcements are needed and that’s when we add ‘the remedy’ for an additional boost.

Try it out, cheers!
