Hot chocolate is a ultimate weakness of mine. There’s something about it that can cheer someone up right away. Maybe it’s the warm feeling on your hands. Maybe it’s the memories of Mom making it for me when I came in after a long day of sledding. Or maybe it’s just that smell of chocolate. During the Winter hot chocolate becomes our #1 drink. After we come home from work, usually frozen, we’ll quickly make 2 nice hot cups of hot chocolate and sit in front of the heater. For dessert, brownies are pushed to the side and hot chocolate is favored on chilly nights. For a night by myself with a book or watching The Tudors (I’m obsessed) I’m going to choose a big mug of hot chocolate, along with a big handful of marshmallows.
DREAM™ Gelato is the first (and only) almond-based, non-dairy gelato. I just recently found out there is a almond factory 2 blocks away from me so everyday I insist in walking by it so I can smell the sweet almonds. The small things in life.. you know? Made in the traditional Italian style from real almonds, DREAM™ Gelatos are vegan, free of artificial flavors and preservatives, free of highly refined sugars, and free of lactose, gluten, cholesterol, and trans fats. Basically, it wins.
It comes in 8 flavors: Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Indulgence, Café Latte, Coconut Almond, Tropical Mango, Raspberry Ribbon, Black Cherry and Vanilla Bean.
Seriously, can you imagine a hot chocolate with Sea Salt Caramel Gelato in it? Or how about making it extra chocolate with Chocolate Indulgence (title of my future biography)? If you see them in the store, you must pick them up to try!
So grab your slippers, slip on your comfy sweater and kick back with this hot chocolate! I always encourage a cookie on the side….. 😉
