Decadent Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate is thick, rich, and delicious. If you enjoy a sweeter hot chocolate, add more maple sugar. The Hu gems are dark chocolate, and using 2 tablespoons of sugar keeps the drink less sweet, which I enjoy. If you have little ones, more maple sugar will be needed. Adding whipped cream helps add a little sweetness as well.  

Decadent Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate is rich and creamy. The bonus part is that it's dairy-free and Paleo compatible.
