How to make Snickers hot chocolate 

This snickers hot chocolate recipe is incredibly easy because it really does not take much to make your own hot chocolate! Start by adding all your ingredients to a small saucepan. You can play around with the measurements if you’d like to suit your taste. You may want it more or less chocolatey or more or less sweet, whatever you prefer is how you should make it! Next, put the saucepan on the stove and bring the heat to somewhere between low and medium. Mix everything together until the chocolate has completely melted. You do not have to stir the whole time the chocolate is melting but be sure to not leave it for too long. 

Once everything is well combined, lower the heat to a simmer for 3-5 minutes. Continue stirring intermittently during this time. You want to make sure that nothing is settled for too long. When the time is up, transfer your hot chocolate to your favourite mug and add any toppings you desire! I highly recommend whipped cream, chopped peanuts, or chocolate shavings. Anything that floats your boat would go very well here. A cut up Snickers bar would be absolutely amazing too! And that’s all there is to it! This recipe makes enough for one large drink or two smaller ones, the choice is totally yours.
