Gourmet Coconut Hot Chocolate

When it is cold outside you need to have hot chocolate right? Well you are in luck because I have an amazing gourmet coconut hot chocolate recipe for you. This recipe is kid approved. When I made it the other night after my husband and boys came in from shoveling the driveway they downed their cups with in minutes.

You can find the cream of coconut in the drink aisle in your grocery store next to all the cocktail mixes. I like to top my off with a dollop of whipped cream and a few sprinklings of toasted coconut. I think it would taste really good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as well!

Until next time,
