Share the joy with a cup of this creamy red velvet hot chocolate. So easy to make and so satisfying, it’s going to be a hit for both the kids and adults! #sharethejoy
Valentine’s day it’s just a few days away! It’s time to buy all things chocolate, buy all the roses and make all the red velvet recipes you can think of. It’s time to smile more. It’s time to love more. It’s time to share the joy with everyone you know.
It’s time to call the one(s) that make your heart skip a beat and serve them this red velvet hot chocolate.
My daughter and my husband LOVE hot chocolate! If it’s up to them we would make hot chocolate in the middle of July. They are on a hot chocolate diet year round.
I, I’m on a love boat year round. They fill my world with so much joy, it’s intoxicating. From the daily “I love you” said tens of times each day, to the random hugs and kisses or reaching out to hold hands for no particular reason, they make my heart melt every single day. I cannot imagine growing old with someone else.
My daughter is probably the happiest kid I know. Yes, she occasionally cries, of course, but her laughter, her singing, her joy of life are contagious! She finds joy in all the little things. She lives her days to the fullest always looking for the next best thing to make her even happier.
It’s really hard to be upset around her. And surprisingly, she may be just 6 but she taught me new ways to live. From her, I learned to let go and see the glass half full. From her, I learned that few minutes of goofing in the kitchen, dancing and singing like nobody is watching turns that frown upside down.
Yesterday we had a little dancing party going on.
In four weeks she’s going to the first national piano contest and has two songs to learn by heart. She practiced so hard, she already knows the songs!! I was so proud of her! She was so excited she asked me to call her teacher and played the songs over the phone.
So we celebrated, with red velvet hot chocolate, of course!
I was debating if I should call this skinny red velvet hot chocolate or not. I will let you decide on that based on the ingredients I used.
A combo of white and dark chocolate is chopped and melted in whole milk (you could use 2% milk). Because the white chocolate is very sweet there’s no sugar added. A touch of vanilla and some red food color.
I know red velvet desserts are topped with cream cheese, but staying on the “skinny” side I topped my hot chocolate with Reddi-wip. Made with real cream and with just 15 calories, it’s by far my 1st choice as hot chocolate topping.
Reddi-wip is inviting everyone to join their #sharethejoy mission. The goal is to spread and share the joy you feel with those around us.
I know we’re all busy with our day to day lives, but if we stop just for few seconds to smile to the person next to us, pay a compliment (even to a stranger), offer a cookie or a cup of this red velvet hot chocolate our days will be filled with joy!
It doesn’t take much effort yo share the joy, we just have to be intentional.
