Jake’s Holiday Hot Chocolate Recipe: How you connect with people

ke’s Holiday Hot Chocolate Recipe

Now, most people love Hot Chocolate. It’s warm. Sweet. Delicious. A treat for the soul, right? Can we all get a shout-out for our favorite Hot Chocolate? Amen!

However, my hero, Jake Simons, from Marmalade’s First Christmas has taken Hot Chocolate to a whole new level. This isn’t your mother’s foil-packet solution to take off the chill of winter (No disrespect to your Mama. We love those little marshmallows!)

Jake Simons takes his Hot Chocolate recipe into the stratosphere, and connects with people.

Jake’s Mama is actually responsible for the composition of the recipe. She loved that boy so much. And, while she’s gone on to heaven when we meet Jake in Marmalade’s First Christmas, she prepared him for real life like all good Mama’s will. She taught Jake how to cook. One of his favorite recipes is his Mama’s Hot Chocolate.

Good thing, considering Marley West, Jake’s love interest in the story, can’t even boil water without burning it. LOL!

Jake’s got his work cut out for him when it comes to Miss Marley. And feeding her. Body, and soul.

But, never fear. Love, Holidays, and Hot Chocolate have a way of connecting people despite a Christmas Blizzard.

Here’s the Hot Chocolate recipe Jake fixes for Marley, the soul-warming drink that captures her heart:
