It’s taken me a while to find  a dairy free hot chocolate that suits my taste buds.  I’ve settled on a combination of any dairy free milk, cocoa powder, a little square of dairy free dark chocolate and maple syrup for the perfect mug.  If you are after a special treat then you can top with some mini marshmallows.  You can also top with some whipped coconut cream but I found it too much and prefer it without. This recipe is perfect for cold winter evenings.
