Toasty Almond Hot Chocolate
|2 Tbsp. Slivered almonds||2 cups Whole milk|
|2-3 heaping Tbsp. your favourite hot cocoa||1/2 tsp. Almond extract|
|Whipped cream (optional)||Chocolate shavings (optional, but recommended!)|
Line your baking sheet with parchment paper, preheat oven to 350 degrees and toast almonds for 3-5 minutes, keeping a close eye on them so they don't burn.
In a sauce pan, warm milk on low until just simmering. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate and almond extract and stir until melted.
Pour into a tall glass, top with whipped cream, toasted almonds and chocolate shavings!
