Inspiration Challenge: Warm & Fuzzy {Hot Chocolate for Two}

It’s time for January’s inspiration challenge. This month’s theme is warm & fuzzy. All kinds of ideas ran through my head for this challenge. Everything from sewing projects to a cake. In the end I decided to focus on the feeling of warm & fuzzy rather than a literal interpretation. Hot chocolate always gives me that warm & fuzzy feeling when I drink it. With Valentine’s Day approaching I decided it would be a great idea to make Hot Chocolate for Two.

This recipe is very simple and quick. I added a little heavy whipping cream to give it a slight richness. I’m not a big fan of dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate in my hot chocolate so I stuck to milk chocolate but by all means use the latter if you prefer.

Hot Chocolate for Two

Hot Chocolate for Two


  • 1 1/2 c milk
  • 1/4 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 c milk chocolate chips
  • whipped topping
  • chocolate for shaving
  • sprinkles (optional)


  1. Place milk, cream and chocolate chips in a sauce pan and heat over medium low heat.
  2. Keep stirring continuously until all the chocolate has melted and the temperature is to your liking.
  3. Top with whipped topping, shaved chocolate and sprinkles.

I’m anxious to see what Stephanie made for this challenge. We mostly try to keep the challenges a secret from each other but sometimes we’ll give each other sneak peeks. I haven’t seen what she’s been working on at all. Let’s check it out here.

Remember that with each of these challenges I host a link-up so that you can participate if you like & show off your work. There is no right or wrong to these challenges. Just make something that inspires you with the theme. Next month’s theme is Love in honor of Valentine’s Day. With such a broad theme the possibilities are endless.

  3. I am so glad we are snowed in today with all of these ingredients. The chances of cabin fever will be significantly less if I can drop two cups of this cocoa into my kids hands 🙂
