Gingerbread Hot Chocolate (Vegan)

Are you ready for everything festive and Christmassy?

Let’s face it, with Lockdown 2.0 underway in England (and in many other countries), we could all do with a little early festive cheer!

These Gingerbread Hot Chocolates are part of my long-term partnership with Meridian, and are perfect for sipping snuggled up on the sofa, watching Christmas movies and the snow fall.

They are simple to make, utterly cosy and also perfectly healthy!

Best served with a good book…
