Nothing will comfort you and warm you up like this delicious French hot chocolate.

I wanted to share with you this “chocolat chaud à l’ancienne” (hot chocolate like in the old times) recipe that I indulge in during the coldest days of winter.

Although I probably shouldn’t say this, at the risk of crashing a beautiful cliché you might have had in mind that Parisians drink hot chocolate in cafés in Paris. Well I almost never drink hot chocolate when I’m in Paris.

My favorite time to drink hot chocolate is when I’m at my parents’ house in the French countryside (the Bourbonnais region) during winter, after a nice, long walk in nature when it’s really, really cold outside. I hurry to prepare this delicious and comforting hot chocolate and set myself next to the fireplace. Just thinking about this brings a huge smile on my face.

And what I really love about this recipe, is that once again, it is very simple and easy. Please don’t forget that even though this recipe is a pretty healthy version of hot chocolate, it is still a treat!

Sorry to kill the mood but I think I should make this little reminder. If this blog offers a lot of dessert and treat recipes it is only because those dishes are the most difficult one to make when on a “free from” diet/protocol. But you should know that I don’t eat a sweet muffin along with a hot chocolate every day. You have to find your own balance between indulging from time to time and being too strict with yourself. I do believe that if we never indulge and create a frustration it will cause stress and, consequently, inflammation.
