With the cold of February having set in around here, which means long days stuck inside with a restless toddler, and the ominous filing of this year's tax return staring me in the face, I have been on the lookout lately to find ways to slow down, relax, and warm up. If I can steal a moment for myself in the afternoon when my daughter takes the rare nap, I like to whip up a little something warm, creamy, & comforting to enjoy.  But let's face it- I have no clue how long that little moment to myself is actually going to last around here.  So, I also need a little something delicious but quick. ;)

In one of these few and far between "me time" moments, I had a craving for something warm, chocolaty, but with a little spice. I thought why not combine two of my favorites into one easy and quick sip? Chai tea and a little instant hot cocoa mix come together in this creamy Easy Chai Hot Chocolate.  It is ready to savor and enjoy in mere minutes, folks...

This Easy Chai Hot Chocolate has become my new go-to cup of comfort around here. I am just a sucker for all things chocolate and chai spiced. :)

How do you warm up and wind down during these cold winter months?
