Cosy Home Hot Chocolate

Cream and marshmallows melting

I love a hot chocolate. In the morning when I get to work, when I am out in a cafe or at home as a way to unwind after a long day. Cream and marshmallows are usually reserved for the ones that are made for me in a cafe but that seemed a little sad […]
