S'mores and Hot Chocolate: The Perfect Winter Treat for Couples

Hot Chocolate Recipe
As the temperature drops, all you want to do is snuggle up with your partner and enjoy some delicious comfort food. Nothing screams winter more than s'mores and hot chocolate. Whether you are by the fireplace or simply bundled up on your couch, this winter treat will surely warm you up. So, let's get started and make the perfect s'mores and hot chocolate.

The first step in making the perfect s'mores is gathering the ingredients. You will need graham crackers (or digestives - it's more readily available here in Australia), chocolate bars, and marshmallows. Break the graham crackers in half and place a piece of chocolate on one side. Place a marshmallow on top and cover it with the other half of the graham cracker. Now, you can either enjoy it as is or toast it over an open flame until the marshmallow is golden brown and gooey. Make as many as you want and enjoy with your loved one.

Moving on to hot chocolate, it's the perfect companion to s'mores. You can either make it from scratch or use a pre-made mix. If you decide to make it from scratch, all you need is milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Heat the milk in a saucepan until it's warm, but not boiling. Add cocoa powder, sugar, and salt, and whisk until it's well combined. Pour the hot chocolate in mugs and add a dollop of whipped cream on top. It's that easy.

Now that you have your s'mores and hot chocolate, it's time to enjoy them together. Whether you light up the fireplace or simply dim the lights, create a cosy atmosphere for you and your partner. Make sure you have enough blankets and pillows to snuggle up with. Put on your favourite romantic movie or play some soft music to set the mood.

If you want to take it up a notch, you can add some extra flavours to your s'mores and hot chocolate. You can try adding different types of chocolate to your s'mores, like dark or white chocolate. You can also add a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to your hot chocolate to give it a warm and cozy taste. Don't be afraid to experiment and find your perfect combination.

Enjoy your winter treat together.
