Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Whittard

Hi guys!

It’s cold, it’s December and it’s almost Christmas. The perfect time for a Hot Chocolate themed recipe! What about these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with the Luxury Hot Chocolate from Whittard? I think it looks so cute!

These Hot Chocolate Cupcakes are the perfect solution for you if you can’t choose between an actual Hot Chocolate or a Chocolate Cupcake. You just eat a Hot Chocolate!

The Luxury Hot Chocolate from Whittard is quite strong when you dip your nose in the bags. But it softens in the batter which results in a lovely, balanced flavor.
