If you want to stay most of your time at your log cabin accommodation, there’s nothing to worry about as the kitchens of all the cabins are fully furnished with modern appliances such as fridge, microwave oven, stove, washer/dryer, dishwasher, pots and pans, dishes, and kitchen wares and utensils. This gives you the opportunity to cook your own food if you don’t feel like going out for dinner. When you are spending a wonderful escapade with the whole family or loved one in Branson during winter season, there’s always a possibility of considering to make your own hot chocolate. With the fully equipped kitchen, you can make a perfect hot chocolate for winter.

Hot chocolate is a staple during winter time. It is a warm, velvety-smooth mixture of rich cream and dark chocolate that does double duty as a drink and dessert. Unlike hot cocoa, hot chocolate is thick, with a balance of sweetness that only dark chocolate can give. This homemade treat can be made right in your fully furnished log cabin as it only requires a few ingredients and a few minutes on the stovetop to warm up a cold evening. To make hot chocolate, you’ll need a bar of dark chocolate. Considering the small amount of chocolate, it will affect the hot chocolate’s flavor, so you should buy the best chocolate you can. Look for the chocolate in the 60 percent range or higher.

To start making hot chocolate, combine the chocolate, cocoa, and brown sugar. Whisk together the chocolate, cocoa powder, and sugar in small saucepan. This helps break up any lumps in the cocoa or sugar. Add the milk and set the saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then whisk occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until hot and smooth. Then add the vanilla and salt. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa, if desired.
