Isn’t autumn glorious? One of my favorite things about the changing of the weather is the warm drinks. I don’t regularly drink hot beverages, so hot chocolate is very seasonal for me. I love sipping on herbal tea or cocoa before bedtime during the fall and winter months. I wanted to try and make a cup that had a Halloween twist: Orange Hot Cocoa. This recipe is creamy and refreshing. I tend to prefer creamy hot cocoa over rich, dark hot cocoa, and this recipe definitely fits the bill! Plus the orange flavor is just divine.
Is is cool enough for hot cocoa where you are?

mmmmmmm tasty! I didn’t have any orange oil on hand, so I used extra orange zest and then strained it all out before serving. The result is creamy chocolate with just a hint of orange. I love that the final product isn’t too sweet or too rich, just perfect. Thanks for the recipe!
You’re welcome! That sounds great! I didn’t strain my zest, but I think that is a brilliant idea, the chunks on the bottom are not super appealing.
Doesn’t the orange flavor clash unpleasantly with the cocoa? I’ve never heard of cocoa+orange
Really? You have never had those Sweet’s orange sticks or a Terry’s Chocolate orange? I love the flavors together! You should try it :)
nothing yummier and warming than some orange flavor and chocolate! Great recipe for creamy orange hot cocoa, thanks for sharing.
Thanks! It really is SO so good :) I love orange and chocolate!
