I lined the rim of the mugs with nut butter!

It's like lip liner for your cozy holiday beverages.  Hello, Holiday JOY!

How many mugs of hot chocolate have you had this holiday season?  Better question: How many mugs of hot chocolate have you had with a nut butter rim?  Zero, you say?  Perfect.  Make this.

Perhaps make this tonight while you tune in to ABCFamily's 25 Days of Christmas.  I believe Elf is on tonight.  My mom hates Will Ferrell, so I feel like her opinions have rubbed off on me, but I still love Elf.  And there's maple syrup in this hot chocolate so I'm thinking Buddy would approve.

If you don't have a TV, I'm sure you can find an acceptable holiday movie on Netflix.  You don't have Netflix? I can't help you.

Oh, but wait.  I can help you because hot chocolate.

Now.  

This hot chocolate is rather dark and angry.  I used dark cocoa powder + 85% dark chocolate to make a deep, dark mug of holiday cheer.  

No, there isn't alcohol, but chocolate brings plenty of holiday cheer.  

I did add a bit of turmeric AND it totally works since chocolate is earthy and turmeric is earthy.  Earthy ingredient + Earthy ingredient = delicious mocha hot chocolate.  Who knew?

If you're looking for a cozy drink to add to your holiday drink "must-make" list, this creamy concoction could be it.
