It’s time to light a beeswax candle, put some Christmas music on, pull out some board games, and mix up some hazelnut butter hot chocolate. The flavour of this hot chocolate is unparalleled – not to mention the thick creamy texture. Unlike traditional hot chocolate, this recipe is sweetened naturally with medjool dates. The addition of hazelnut butter not only adds amazing flavour, but helps to stabilize blood sugar levels thanks to the healthy fats and protein found in our single-ingredient hazelnut butter.
