‘Relax and Unwind’ Lavender Hot Chocolate Recipe
I posted this recipe within an article I published last winter, and it has become my most popular contribution on Pinterest to date. At the time of this writing, it has been pinned more than 40,000 times, and I’ve received countless requests that others share it on their blogs, media sources, etc. Yes, it is truly that delicious.
It took me more than a year of experimentation to master the balance of chocolate, cream and lavender. I gagged, spat and winced my way through a dozen failed attempts so that you don’t have to.
So, run a hot bath and curl up with a mug of this not-so-sinfully delicious offering of decadence and serenity. You’re welcome.
