Make every moment special. That’s my motto. Is it yours?
The holiday season is one of the most expected times of the year. For many of us, it is also a stressful and unhappy time.
With the pandemic among us, this year which traditionally involves road trips for large gatherings might be a bit different.
It’s important to have clear expectations in order to make this holiday season a happy time for everyone.
What is it exactly that you want to experience during the holidays?
Ways to Make Every Moment Special with Mexican Chocolate Caliente
If you still don’t know how to approach the holidays this year, here is what I am doing, because spending more time with my family is number one.
The holidays bring huge, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” style feasts, where we all get together, eat until we just about the pop, and laugh together.
That’s why I’ve made this delicious, homemade “Mexican Chocolate Caliente” using my go-to chocolate recipe.
This is an amazing “caliente” recipe and warms you up on a cold day. Plus, it’s decadent, silky, thick taste that makes your feel body exquisite!
Let’s keep the winter shorter and happier.
Special Moments with Mexican Chocolate Caliente
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner all excellent times to make special moments that we’ll always remember.
These are the times when we come together as a family to share our thoughts, ideas, and lives with each other.
It can be so much more. That’s why I added a delicious hot chocolate for when the pizza is all done.
This recipe will have a family sitting, sipping, and sharing. And that’s the whole point.

Make Every Moment Special – Even Pizza Night!
Even the simplest meals can be made into lasting memories. Take this meal, for example. It’s nothing more than a pizza night when things are rushed.
I have to be honest, I usually don’t buy frozen pizza. It’s just never been my thing. I usually prefer to order it.
BUT, pizza has converted me! And you know what? I like the Chocolate Caliente with pizza combination!
That chewy rising crust topped (is your mouth watering yet?) with tasty sauce; spinach, mushroom, and garlic; and, of course, plenty of cheese!
That already makes it a special pizza night, but this hot chocolate takes it to an entirely different level!
Food Makes Everything Better!
Not having family gatherings due to the pandemic, could be harsh on many of us because mental health is important, especially now more than ever.
Food makes everything a bit better, agree?
I mean just look at this great dinner! It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s a perfect recipe for some quality family time around the table. It doesn’t get any better than that!
