Healthy hot Chocolate.
Chocolate is the answer to every problem.
No seriously, it is.
—-Boyfriend broke up with you? Chocolate!
—-No time to make dinner? Chocolate!
—-Spilled red wine all over your tablecloth? Baking soda!
Baking soda??? Okay, maybe chocolate is the answer to almost every problem. (Please don’t try putting chocolate on your red wine stains. Not a good idea!)
Homemade hot chocolate above is topped with coconut whipped cream and Healthy Chocolate Raspberry Sauce.
But when it’s been raining all day, and you and your roommate are stuck inside (as we were yesterday), chocolate is definitely the answer.
