Posted on January 27 2017
Baby, it’s cold outside! The weather outside may be frightful, but we have the coziest snack for you to eat by the fire. Our milk chocolate dipped Speculoos pretzels and hot chocolate make for the perfect wintertime treat! The cinnamon taste of the Speculoos pretzels works so well paired with hot chocolate. Here’s our favorite homemade hot chocolate recipe for you to try out.
Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe Ingredients

-3 cups whole milk

Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe Directions
-Bring ¾ cup water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat

Use a Speculoos pretzel rod as a spoon to stir the hot chocolate with! The chocolate will start to melt off of the pretzel and there’s nothing more delicious!
