red-velvet-hot-cocoa-recipe   
Ever since I saw the red velvet hot chocolate at Coffee Bean Singapore for the holiday season, I wanted to try it out. It looked so pretty in baby pink, crowned with white cream just as snow toppingBatting Eyelashes. I wanted to post this red velvet hot cocoa along with the red velvet pancakes, but since I was busy, I left it as such that time, but I was finding time to post it, sooner. So here, with Valantine’s day coming up, I thought of posting this now. I have never posted any special Valentines day recipes here in my blog, but I found this as chance to post my pretty red velvet hot cocoa. Though the one what I saw at coffee Bean was baby pink in colour, I had no idea how they got it. May be they used white chocolate for it. But I made it this way, a bright pinky drink. I realized I added a bit more of colour, so I have adjusted the colour measurement accordingly in the ingredients, so don’t be surprized you get a slight difference in the colour. I used pink colour, but you can use red too. But make sure to use liquid colour to avoid after taste that the powder artificial colours give.
So why not for a change, you guys make this for your GF/ wife Love Struck this valentines day as a surprise for them and enjoy your evening happily together? It’s that easy, so don’t miss to impress your valentine Winking
