Every day is a hot chocolate day. Nothing comforts you more than a cup of hot chocolate except, of course, a virus-free world. 

In today's recipe, we'll be making a CBD-infused hazelnut hot chocolate. This hearty, warm beverage mimics hugs, and let's be honest; hugs are not trendy these days.  CBD oil is added to this recipe. The oil adds to your relaxing morning ritual of calmness and serenity.

How to prepare the recipe:

  1. Turn your stove's heat into the medium. In a clean small pot, whisk together your: 
    • One and a half cup of hazelnut milk;
    • Two spoonfuls of cacao powder;
    • A scoop of cacao butter and;
    • Sugar, honey, or any sweetener of choice (amount: according to your taste).

You're done whisking when the cacao butter melted, and the pot's ingredients seem to blend well together.

  2. After the mixture has cooled off at its original temperature, pour your proper CBD oil dosage
  3. Pour the contents into a large mug.

Other things to keep in mind:

  1. This recipe is best served hot, but you can also serve this semi-cold. Before storing it in your refrigerator's middle section, wait for your cup to cool off a little bit.
  2. This recipe is best served in the morning. The sugar-rush effect at night might not be ideal.
  3. You can exclude the cacao butter ingredient. 
  4. If you're on a keto diet, butter on a hot mug is great. Just take it easy with the sweetener.
  5. Adjust the ingredients according to your diet. I promise you, the recipe's ingredients are adjustable.
  6. Double, triple, or serve more cups by basing your measurements on this recipe. Remember, the default amount of ingredients in this recipe yields one serving.
  7. CBD oil is not required in this recipe if you're not a fan.
