Vegan Hot Chocolate

I’ve been itching to try making vegan hot chocolate for some time and finally got around to tying it. And it is ridiculously chocolately!

None of that watery, sort of chocolate flavour  drink. Pure, rich chocolate flavour!

Next, shave the chocolate with a zester and add to the saucepan. Stir.

When the mixture begins to bubble a bit (about 10-12 minutes), remove from heat and pour into desired cup.

Enjoy!
