The weather has been absolutely crazy this season here on the Gulf Coast. Just two nights ago we had a freeze warning, and now as I sit here typing this it is over 70* and raining. However, in another day or two, the temperatures will be plummeting again, and that is when we will be curling up in front of the fireplace with a warm cup of hot chocolate. Midge absolutely loves the flavor of butterscotch – probably because for as long as I can remember, her grandpa has always carried butterscotch in his pocket and given her one every time he sees her. I wanted to surprise her with her favorite treats together in one – Butterscotch Hot Chocolate.
I did not tell Midge before I served this, and watching her eyes light up when she tasted the difference was perfect! The butterscotch gives your hot chocolate just that little extra kick of flavor without being too overly sweet. This will definitely be how we serve her favorite hot beverage from now on!
DElicious and easy - bring your two favorite flavors together in this creamy, hot beverage that everyone will love!
